I have been working at Symetra full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Lots of good people with lots of knowledge.

Cons

Management. The entire leadership group is completelyt incompetent. Tom Marra has done nothing but make this company worse.

The sales team management spend millions on new products that absolutely no know wants to sell. Because of this good people are layed off from their jobs but the sales team leadership continue to spend and waste money.

Communication is non existant at Symetra and please dont ask questions or you will be talked to.

Most of the executive team lives on the east coast and spends millions of dollars on flights and hotels. They have no vested interest in the success of the company.

If you work there, then leave. If you dont stay away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourselves.

    I worked at Symetra full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Downtown Bellevue location close to plenty of restaurants and Bellevue square

    Cons

    Abysmal salary, no communication from upper management, and this is becoming the new Hartford at the hands of Tom Marra. Overtime is mandatory in some departments and regardless of how many extra hours you put in expect daily guilt trips about not being a team player.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not an east coast company, so stop running it like one

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

    Pros

    Smart, hardworking, involved employees (who don't take themselves too seriously)!

    My experience with management and senior management has been very positive - strive to be transparent and encourge employees to speak up.

    There is VERY good work-life balance at Symetra.

    Career mobility is supported and encouraged - discovered that 30% of all posted jobs are filled internally.

    Cons

    In comparison with other employers in the area, paid time off is not competetive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to be an employer of choice, continue to make strides in the overall benefits array and paid time off.

    Continue to encourage employee feedback in all areas - from products and pricing to benefits and company culture.
