    Good company to work for and with due to regional size.

    Pros

    Great group of people. Good working environment. Company seems to care about it's employees. Listens to needs and concerns of everyone by lower and senior management levels. Being a regional has both good and some downsides. Good aspect is the closeness of working with employees at all levels of the company and being able to meet most needs of clients.

    Cons

    Due to being a regional salaries and benefits are okay, but slightly less than some competitors. Restricts employees sometimes in doing business due to state limitations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being receptive to employees and listen to how we all can work together to continue growing as a great company.

    Pros

    If you need an job and want to work in an insurance company, WRB is an alternative to the very large insurance companies and may be attractive because of its smaller size. Because the offices are scattered, individual offices have small numbers of people at each site, and this is good if you don't want to get lost in a huge corporation. Small numbers of people can mean that you have to take on more responsibilities that are not related to your actual job title. This may or may not be attractive to individual employees, and may or may not contribute to your career goals.

    Cons

    Scattered offices and management and poor information systems make customer service very difficult in a time sensitive business. If the customer service is dependent for information that is coming from someone in another office, who reports to someone else, the customer service person is at the mercy of these unknown individuals and has no power to get move quickly when needed. From the customer's point of view, the customer service person is the one who is unresponsive or who is making excuses for not getting the information to the customer. People on the front line need time sensitive support from the back offices and need to be able to determine priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your front line people the support they need so that they can do a good job.
