I worked at OneBeacon

Pros

If you take the time to negotiate, OneBeacon can provide great pay. A few years ago they moved to nice new building in Canton, MA. It is a good company overall.

Cons

The Legal Dept. was a little tough to work in - there was alot of turnover. The managing attorneys talked down to and negatively about employees out in the open.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a great payscale, great building, now if only upper management, (specifically attorneys) were more professional and less gossipy.

    I have been working at OneBeacon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation, pay, and that is about it

    Cons

    If you're a hard worker then you get rewarded with more work then told over and over that it is not a 40 hour a week job and you are given hints that if you don't work over 40 hours then you may keep your job. They overload you with the work of two people but expect you to continue to provide superior customer service which is impossible with the work load. A home life balance is some kind of foreign word to this company. Simply they just don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the work load reasonable, the job is stressful enough without telling us over and over this is not a 40 hour a week job and make us feel that if we don't work over 40 hours we will be on warning and potentially lose our job, there are labor laws ------one of these days it will take one brave person to put a stop to this behavior.

    I worked at OneBeacon

    Pros

    Nice People. That's really all i have to say about it. Oh, probably one of the nicer cafeteria's i've seen.

    Cons

    Salary blew, no room for advancement, layoffs, etc. Most prominent was the complete lack of leadership. My bosses would habitually "work from home", ie. taking a day off without having to use one of your vacation tdays.
