    I have been working at Symetra full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    401k match.
    good work/life balance.
    good location.

    Cons

    majority of middle management/senior employees are old/inefficient.
    higher positions are based on longevity/seniority within the company as opposed to knowledge/efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wipe out middle management and reopen the positions for interviews. many positions can be performed in a fraction of the current time.

    I worked at Symetra

    Pros

    - Some great coworkers
    - Great location

    Cons

    - Managers are able to do things employees cannot (work from home often, etc.)
    - Employees are afraid to share thoughts and ideas
    - New senior management structure and resulting changes have put a lot of strain on the morale of remaining employees
    - A lot of really great people have left the company through lay-offs or resigning because of changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that employees make the company great, managers often get credit for successes that their reports are responsible for.
