    I have been working at NORCAL Mutual Insurance full-time (more than 5 years)

    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

    This is a wonderful, family friendly company. EVERYONE there is part of a team and as such are always willing to help each other out. Upper management always listens to any questions or concerns you may have. This is a truly caring company, one that takes care of its employees.

    Cons

    There are none. Norcal was a great company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. You all are great and I am very thankful for the time I had at Norcal. I will never forget it.
