Pros

Flextime available and benefits are good.

Cons

Middle management is almost all non-degreed. Their knowledge is limited to what they have learned on the job and there seems to be contempt for those with higher learning or professional designations in their field.

Upper management seems to have the intellect needed however they seem to be unable to exert order. Middle and upper management seem to be at odds with each other.

Opportunities for advancement are based on tenure not on merit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don’t know where to start with this one. Middle management is a big part of the problem.

    OK to work at, but not terribly exciting.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, opportunity to work from home if needed. Benefits are fair.

    Cons

    People work the most insane hours; it is not out of the question to get an e-mail from someone at 6 AM on a Sunday morning. Also, everyone is right on top of one another; claustrophobes beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think there should be more incentive for younger people to work here- current technologies are antiquated, and there is little dynamicism within the company.

    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.
