Pros

very stable company that is well positioned in the industry

Cons

under pay... make sure you are very happy with your comp before you get in because they typically pay on 90% to market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there is some dead weight in the organization and management doesn't have the backbone to address it. As well, there is so much red tape in the org, it's a wonder anything gets done at all... smaller companies can move so much faster and once they understand the business model, look out...

    Very, very corporate cultural where there are a lot of managers who love to look important but have no clue.

    Pros

    Above average industry benefits, stable company.

    Cons

    Very corporate culture with several inexperienced mangers with no common sense and no people skills. If you think having an interview with 3 managers that takes 2 hrs for an auto appraiser position is ridiculous, then look elsewhere. You will be glad that you did not get hired in this company. Corporate Confusion to the max.!!! They have never heard of keep it simple stupid. Very, very inefficient company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your ivory towers and start making changes ! Oh , yeah, that's right they did not teach you common sense in MBA school. They just taught you the six sigma approach to nowhere fast!! Keep on counting your beans and wigits, keep on micro managing and see where that gets your company. Just a workforce afraid to have an opinion, no morale, no enthusiasm, just going thru the motions...til the A players find greener pastures.

    Pros

    Fortune 500, great benefits (excluding pay - see cons); the company has a number of hard-working and talented employees from whom I have learned a lot.

    Cons

    I suspect that pay is somewhat below market. It is a common belief that top executives really want to close the St. Paul offices and sell the buildings. Some people believe that a few years ago the company made a quiet effort to put the buildings on the market but found that there were no good offers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If things stay the same then we will keep slowly losing IT resources in Minnesota as the IT job market continues to improve. It is discouraging to hear reports of strong profits while being told that there is little to no money available for salary for IT - and IT is a critical component of the company's continuing success.
