I have been working at Selective Insurance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working with good people. Benefits are great compared to other similar companies

Cons

Too much work for too few people Business is driven too much by IT not the business (i.e. IT V.P.'s routinely tell business units what to do) No growth potential. Very top heavy on security which makes it almost impossible to do anything. Senior Management doesn't listen, instead they cut you off and say "I Get It".

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, we do know what we are doing. Stop letting IT drive, instead tell IT what you must have and not accept a solution that doesn't meet your needs.

    I worked at Selective Insurance as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provided necessary assistance. gave proper time to execute work given. Pay was good. The projects were helpful in enhancing any knowledge previously held . There was always a mentor given who was very helpful and precise in their work. Interns were allowed to partake in meetings( which regarded their project) with the head of the department, to get the full experience

    Cons

    Sometimes work was unavailable leaving idle time (considering time was almost 8 hours a day)
