    Pros

    Largest employer in downtown Portland. Pays good wages to their employees. Strong and Conservative Insurance company here in the Portland metro area.

    Cons

    They choose to lay off over 100 people in 2012 & 2013.
    The atmosphere at work has changed, they used to be a fun and nice place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at team, department and Division moral of your employees.
    Try to find ways to ease the level of stress on some teams and in the EB Claims area.
    Have better and more training in the area of Coping with Work Stress and Change Management.
