I have been working at The Standard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

You can get away with doing nothing.

Cons

No accountability, passive-aggressive, better to be nice than to be productive, software is all ancient and out of support.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit and get some people there with balls, especially David ??? the CIO!

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Portland, OR

    I have been working at The Standard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worker here for about 20 years, through ups and downs, demutualization, recession, etc and it has always been a solid company to work for.

    Cons

    Things have changed over the years; not always for the good. Annual raises for the past 4 years have been low or zero. Staff reductions have resulted in more work for everyone, with not much more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth.

    Extremely poor management. It's all about who you're friends with in order to advance in your career

    Pros

    Great location in downtown Portland.

    Cons

    As I said before, poor management practices (at all levels).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some management classes at a nearby college or university.
