Former Employee - Amica Life Producer in Lincoln, RI

I worked at Amica Mutual full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Stability. Looks good on a resume. Great cookouts (if you were able to go and enjoy for more then 15 minutes)

Cons

Managers are liars, fakes, cheats. No room for growth unless you dedicate your life to them. Too much workplace chatter. Managers do not own up to their mistakes nor are they ever reprimanded for them. CEO has NO CLUE about that department. No clue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your heads out of your own butts and MANAGE. There is no need for lies. No need for it at all. Amica Life Department COULD OF BEEN a great place. But because of all the chatter, and noise...NO ONE enjoys working there. They might say it to your face, for the fear of losing their job or becoming a target (which happens quite often when you have a SPINE) but out in the real world, people talk. A lot. That department is corrupt and so are its key employees. Office culture is a mess. A MESS! There are employees there, that have been there for 10+ years, which is wonderful aside from the fact that if they trust you, they will then begin to talk trash about the department, it managers, and everything else that goes along with it. They are afraid. Grown women and men, too nervous to discuss anything because they will then have a target on them. Management will lie and tell you everything is great. Look deeper. I know its sales, and the turnover is always crazy no matter where you go, but Amica is a good place to retire from, and form bonds....its such a shame the Life Department is how it is, and everyone turns a blind eye. Wake up people, wake up soon. Sooner or later they will find themselves deep into lawsuits (which they already have and hide), or on the news for investigation.

    I have been working at Amica Mutual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Headquarters in Rhode Island win best place to work in RI a lot (no chance of any branch winning that!).

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive. Raises based on performance are pitiful - you have to be promoted to receive any substantial increase. Promotions are less based on your work performance and more on who you know. This isn't coming from a bitter employee who was passed over, but is actually built into the system.

    The policies, heavy workload and lack of appropriate compensation work to break down motivation and create detractors in the workforce.

    New college graduates are hired several times a year to manage teams of people who have been working at Amica longer than the kids have been alive. Even if the kids are natural leaders, thats a recipe for intense dissatisfaction on your front lines. You cannot be promoted to management level if you aren't willing (or able) to move, regardless of your performance and experience.

    Amica demands a ridiculous level of personal sacrifice for mediocre compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of work to do if you want to maintain your competitive position, starting with an overhaul of the corporate culture.
