    I have been working at W. R. Berkley full-time

    Pros

    Definitely not your grandfather's insurance company. This organization has plenty of opportunity, excellent people and vision. If you want to make a difference - get on board!

    Cons

    Be ready to think, innovate and put it into overdrive. Not a place for the rest and vest crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider company-wide career postings for those on the move or looking to move.

    I have been working at W. R. Berkley full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible - whether you need time off or want to change your work schedule
    - Compensation & benefits - good - annual bonus into 401k if you contribute to one & a good number of days off out of the gate
    - Hardworking but fun environment
    - Casual dress code (jeans)
    - A lot of promotions from within - management does their best to retain top talent
    - Fun events throughout the year
    - Free gym
    - Exceptional co-workers

    Cons

    - They can be a little set in their ways and antiquated with some things (i.e. telecommuting, time off, etc.)
    - The rules/policies are created in HR but each manager can do as they see fit with their employees and this tends to create animosity (it's the "not fair" game)
    - We seem to pull the trigger on things before we have them fully baked which in turn causes problems and wastes time
