I have been working at GAINSCO

Pros

There is a greater sense of energy and excitement at GAINSCO than at any place I've ever worked before. Management listens and most people are happy to be there. It's an unique place to work. There is a sense that something important is being built, and that you are a part of it.

Cons

people work very hard, and that turns some people off. middle management is stretched kind of thin which can be a positive (you get to do more things) and a negative (you have to figure things out yourself)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

true profit sharing, and keep the culture of listening to employees alive. we want to keep wanting to work here!

    Pros

    the pros is that you work with insurance agent in a territory and if you're a people person you'll build life long relationships

    Cons

    Unrealistic Monthly Quotas, Consistently shutting down areas that disallows your insurance agents in your territory to send you business. Not a lot of opportunities to grow in the company.

    Pros

    All the advantages of a mom and pop with the perks of working for a corporation. Management is flexible and understanding about "life situations" and takes an interest in your direction as an employee, regardless of your current position. Management listens to employees and encourages constructive criticism. It's rare to see a corporation of GAINSCO's size take a small idea from a general employee and apply it on a large scale.

    Cons

    Health benefits are average at best and some departments lack the couth and integrity that others excel in. Additionally, the demographic served is.... difficult... at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't believe entirely in Welch's 20-70-10 philosophy, but I do believe GAINSCO would excel in letting some of its underperformers go. Keep up the great work in listening to your employees and in your unwaivering pursuit to become the best non-standard auto insurance company in the markets we serve.
