The Salary and benefits were good in ccompanies in the area.omparison to other companies in the area due to limited number of insurance

Very stressful and lack of appropriate communication from Management. Management did very little to encourage a positive envireoment in a very stressful situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would recommend treating your employees fairly and give positive as well as negative feedback to encourage employee growth for the benefit of both employee and company.

    State of constant change and reorganization gives opportunity until you reach the saturation point.

    Pros

    Overall employee population is good
    No commute into Boston
    State of constant change provides opportunities if you are motivated

    Cons

    The HR organization is led by people more interested in protecting their turf than moving the orgabnization forward.
    Eventually most strong performers get frustrated by leadership and leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have done a good job turning the company around, but now comes the difficult part - incremental growth. You need to choose a strategy and stick to it, including the leaders for the individual business units. Choose people that can be respected, not actuarial wonks.

    Pros

    good benefits
    adequate pay
    great employees
    lower level employees are team players and great to work with

    Cons

    lack of communication, important information does not make it to the people that need it. Disorganized. Product seems to hide from reality. The systems are antiquated and inefficient. Money being spent on some of the current systems seems to be a waste; there comes a time when you need to start over and build something that works for the current business needs instead of trying to fix something that is never going to work for the curent and future needs of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take accountability, stop pointing fingers and trying to determine who did what to get us here and let's just fix the problems.
