I have been working at Great American Insurance Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Traditional company with very solid human values. Management is very friendly and open to innovation. Employees are highly valued. Lots of career development opportunities are provided to continue education or get trained in both technology and business side (insurance). Financially stable company with chances to rotate to different areas to acquire new knowledge. Constant performance reviews which result in raises and promotions year by year.
Upper management is open to implement employee ideas discussed through internal social networking.

Cons

The normal problems pertaining to a huge enterprise like low visibility, less agile when dealing with enterprise-wide impacting changes. Starting salaries not that great. No work from home policy in place. Micromanagement seen in some teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue embracing changes and adapting to the modern world but always keeping your employees as the most valuable asset.

    I worked at Great American Insurance Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flex hours
    Free membership to the gym downstairs
    Good insurance

    Cons

    Working for a power hungry manager who belittles you and questions your capability of performing the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do NOT put someone in management JUST because they have been at the company for 20+ years... you cannot teach someone how to be a good manager when their personality is that of an unhappy, bitter individual with no patience to train new employees, especially younger workers whom which she enjoys talking down to.
