    The company should be named Indirect due to poor claims handling cycle times.

    Pros

    Management not the highest caliber because no one comes to Direct General by choice. They had to be fired or laid off to land at a place like that.
    Company has good pto time.
    Company has good Health Insurance.
    Company has good employees who are trapped.
    Company does match 5% on 401k.
    Company does pay for lots of alcohol on business trips(only way to deal with stupdity on some of their claims handling practices)

    Cons

    No continuity.
    No communication between claims depts.
    Everyone afraid to lose job so no real leaders.
    Pay way below industry standards.
    Violates fair claims acts on daily basis.
    Has managers making claims decisions without licenses.
    No clear direction on where the company is supposedly going.
    Cycle times are worst in the industry.
    Will spend all the $ on equipment, food, hotels but NEVER salaries.
    Does not promote from within.
    Only company who thinks the longer you are at company, the worse of employee you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to a singular plan, be consistent and fair when dealing with all customers(including employees !)
