I have been working at Great American Insurance Company full-time for 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.

    Former Employee - Investment Accountant in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Great American Insurance Company as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay ($15.50/hour as an intern), good work life balance, accounting training, accounting information systems training.

    Cons

    The department is not unified and doesn't really get along. You go in, do your work and then leave, no personal connections. Supervisors are difficult to work for and communicate with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more of your time on personal connections with all employees, spend more time on training and developing employees rather than just getting work done.
