Good place to work

Claims Supervisor (Current Employee) Simsbury, CT

ProsFrom a customer's standpoint it is a great insurance company - the customer comes first, if any doubt - their loss is covered. The benefit is always given to the insured. The benefits are very good; and depending on what office you work in - work/life balance is supported.

ConsBecause it is a good company to work for - people tend not to leave and that limits the opportunities for advancement. There are broad differences in working for the company depending on what department and/or what office you work in. Senior Management/Home Office needs to do a much better job at communicating in general and at communicating a vision for the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to communicate early, more often and better. The gossip grapevine (and just regular individual worry) does more damage than just coming out and communicating to people what is going on.
Also need to communicate their sense of vision - there isn't enough (or any) leadership vision from the Senior Management.
Senior Management needs to reach down to the lower ranks for feedback - especially on what needs to be changed/improvement - and they cannot be any retribution if that feedback is negative (there is a sense among the middle-management and staff that any criticism - even constructive - will mean that not only won't you get promoted, but you will be at risk of losing your job. But reaching down isn't just for the feedback - when new ideas, projects or change is necessary (even something as basic as changing a workflow), Snr Mgmt tends not to include the people who are actually involved in that aspect of the business -- consequently, the change usually doesn't achieve the desired goal because the people with the knowledge to get it done are not included in the development process.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
