    decent company with some terrible management styles

    IT Consultant (Current Employee)
    Erie, PA

    ProsIt is a decent place to work in Erie. With the right position, you can work until you retire.

    ConsThe management can leave something to be desired. A trend has taken over there in management that a certain percentage of employers and contractors are 'not where they should be in terms of expectations'. This is an open-ended criticism that leaves people confused and unable to ask the manager how they can improve. Employees are being forced to retire early because of bad evaluations. Others are not receiving expected pay increases because of managerial criticism that in many cases is unwarranted. Even contractors are being unduly criticised without adequate reason. In one department, the manager has targeted at least 5 people with underperforming appraisals. This leaves the staff nervous and unprepared for the future. This is unwarranted behaviour. Mr. Ingram needs to be aware of what is going here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to your employees. Stop targeting people because it is a trend. This speaks poorly of the company. If you have a reason to criticize someone's performance, then speak to that person and offer objective improvements to that person.

    Erie Insurance a good place to grow your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Erie, PA

    ProsHaving been in many companies throughout the US and Canada, I would say that Erie is one the most fair companies with great perks and benefits and equitable as you will find.

    ConsErie is a leading company in the area, who pays above market, therefore there is little employee turnover which has created an entitlement culture. Tenured employees take for granted what they have and when any adjustments have to be made in order to remain competitive it is not received well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop leaders to be coaches instead of managing processes.

    An outstanding company with many dedicated employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Erie, PA

    ProsThere are a lot of opportunities to learn and grow. If you put in the effort, you'll get the rewards. Great benefits, including pension, which very few companies offer. Pay is very good.

    ConsLike any company, there is a certain amount of red tape that can be frustrating. Even the simple decisions can take a long time to get made.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the non-performers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great family values

    District Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat family values and somewhat flat organization. People were great to work with and the company really strived to take care of the customer and agents as well.

    ConsSlow changes in product development and IT department was a bit chaotic and slow to change in response to the marketplace.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your states more than being very centralized in your decision-making at Erie, PA.

    Secure job

    Liability Adjuster (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    Prosa lot of positions are remote, good benefits, and depending on your position, you are able to work very independently. However, on the flip side other positions are extremely micro-managed.

    Consworkload can be extreme and sometimes just getting basic responses from management is like pulling teeth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStep up with technology, they are way behind. Its almost embarrassing.

    Summer Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBest for locals. Very less compensation which is justified by the same saying that it is best for that location. But as an outsider there should be better motivation to come to this place. Very nice people, Very beautiful place too.

    ConsNeed to provide better facilities for the outsiders. Had trouble in staying at my appt. due to rude behavior towards the end of summer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
