I worked at NORCAL Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Norcal Mutual was an amazing company to work for. The 10 plus years that I was there were an amazing time of growth and learning. The friendship, the constant dialog and team spirit are things I will always have with me and never forget.

Cons

There is no cons. Norcal Mutual was and still is a great company to work for. Being laid off was a result of the economy and I can't fault them because of that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simply, Thank You for an amazing ten year run. You all are great.

    I worked at NORCAL Mutual Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Learned so much at Norcal, friendly co-workers, great benefits and corporate performance plan.

    Cons

    Toxic environment, poor management, good ol' boys club, ultra conservative, and inefficient processes with old technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and make changes, don't just listen and not do anything. Create open door policy, offer educational trainings and update computer/office technology.

    I worked at NORCAL Mutual Insurance

    Pros

    * Excellent benefits
    * True commitment to work and life balance with employees only working a seven hour work day
    * VERY Generous 401k AND Pension Plan
    * Generous bonus plan for management
    * Friendly group of employees who are for the most part, very happy

    Cons

    This is an extremely political and conservative corporate environment, full of ridiculous rules and outdated processes and technologies. There are processes that are in place that are solely done because "that is how it has always been done". Everything here moves at a snails pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to embrace change! There are so many things that can be done better and much more efficiently.
