Pros

Have autonomy to do what you like doing. This is one of few companies that if you're a good performing employee in their eyes, you will be rewarded. In addition, one of few companies to still offer a pension plan which is rare in today's marketplace.

Cons

Keep you pigeon-holed; managers do not stand up for their employees by educating others on what the roles and responsibilities entail. We were a new department supporting Claims and they never had this before. Although I strived to educate them, the managers only wanted us to perform one function and that was it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop saying yes to client support groups - educate them and the working relationships will be a lot better.

    Pros

    Huge company with various opportunities for growth. Each department is like its own organization. People are nice, flexible culture, accepting towards family life balance.

    Cons

    Very little focus on training and education of employees, raises are minimal, political organization - sometimes you need to be able to learn how to navigate politically to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks with high performing employees - let them think out of the box.
