    Pros

    At one time, NORCAL was the "family-oriented" company mentioned in one of the reviews. Things changed dramatically about 2 years ago and the changes weren't even necessary. At one point there was an acquisition of a similar company and it appeared as though NORCAL was going to join the big leagues. Instead, the acquired company (with less talented workers) became the major players and it's been sad to watch.

    Cons

    The Finance department claimed that NORCAL was in a very good financial position -especially considering the economy and the changes in the industry. This was underscored at two employee meetings. Suddenly, for the first time in NORCAL's history there was a massive (NORCAL is a small, mutually-owned company) lay-off and others have since left for other reasons. It wasn't handled well and not properly communicated to the rest of the company - there were several promotions at the same time (wow- bad taste, they could have waited to do that).

    Pros

    The flexible work hours and ability to telecommute. The people are great.

    Cons

    There is limit opportunity to advance into management but that may be changing as more companies are purchased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management does a fair job of keeping people informed. However feedback is not often acted on as quickly as one would expect.
