I have been working at EMC Insurance as an intern for less than a year

Pros

This is a fantastic company to work for in Des Moines. For a location in the Midwest, their compensation is quite adequate, and I have had very positive experiences with the people who work here. I would recommend you give the company a serious look whether you are just starting out, or looking for a change in careers.

Cons

This is not a very big company, so you'll have to figure out if that's alright with you. There may be some flexibility issues down the road, but I am not aware of those.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. A good work culture at the top DOES trickle down to the bottom.

    I worked at EMC Insurance

    Pros

    Flextime is provided allowing you to work either 7-3:30/7:30-4/8-4:30. The Actuarial department was family friendly and understood the needs of parents. I felt appreciated and enjoyed coming to work. The Actuary department is very open and everyone gets along well making it an enjoyable place. Very stable and secure place to work. They do not lay off like neighboring companies do.

    Cons

    I felt like I did not have much growth opportunity. Working for EMC is a stable work environment and you have job security as long as you do not screw up. However, many people will stay because of job security therefore the chances to move up are limited.

    I worked at EMC Insurance

    Pros

    Teams are nice and small - hours are flexible.
    For the most part the workers in the P&T departments are good to work with.

    Cons

    Trap you in a Unisys/ Mapper /BIS /COOL ICE world that is horribly boring.
    Departmental and higher meetings were always a utter waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People would rather work than sit though "games" and "fun" meetings.
    Find a way to let people do more than program, otherwise they are trapped there.
