    I worked at Liberty Mutual Insurance full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great location in downtown Boston, relocation assistance, great facilities, excellent use of technology

    Cons

    Salaries are low for Boston-area employees, middle managers don't respect the space of others, managers do not respect employees, overly conservative culture for 2014 (suit and tie requirement daily - no business casual Fridays), too many re-orgs, indecisive management, too many McKinsey consultants and not enough people with real management experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep middle managers in their lanes; respect staff

    I have been working at Liberty Mutual Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Large company with competitive benefits. Supportive of continuing education. Job opportunities, but because it's a large company you can get left behind if your manager is not a good advocate in promoting your skills and abilities. A young, ambitious employee can go a long way.

    Cons

    With many of the infrastructure changes especially within Commercial Markets, the realignment does not necessarily make sense. Combining small business (<$50K Prem) and Middle Market ($150K to $1.5M) into the same management style does not work. You can understand the "big picture", but you have small business managers trying to fit MM business into a template/model of very small business. MM gets left behind and your experience and talents do not seem to matter. It seems a tenured employee that is just as ambitious as a young, aggressive employee gets overlooked for opportunities. Perhaps it's because they want to reduce expense of higher salaries and benefits or want new ideas. I still believe tenured employees can have a lot to offer and shouldn't be set aside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should understand the people who work for them, and be supportive of their experience and expertise. A mix of managers with various levels of "book of business" experience should be aligned with the business insurance region structure they are currently operating in. Aggressive goals of profitability, reducing your combined lines loss ratio, and diversifying your mix of business at the risk of losing good agency relationships can be devastating to future growth and retention.
