    Former Employee - Manager in Parsippany, NJ

    I worked at GAB Robins

    Pros

    GAB Robins has a rich history in its field. They are an honest company. I had several positions in the company. Some of the negative comments written in other reviews are laughable and untrue.

    Cons

    For various reasons, some beyond the control of the company, There are some financial issues in the past few years. It is a smaller business. Overseas subsidiaries were sold. There is a big challenge in how to run a company with 50 state coverage with a large overhead, in a shrinking market. There are people working at the company that do not appreciate what they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revamping internal workflow in the Finance Department. Try to foster more cooperation, less turf wars.

    I have been working at GAB Robins

    Pros

    In the Technology division all of the managers (3) have a High School education and have only worked at GAB Robins for the last 20 years. Not much going on as far as innovation. so, it is easy to look smart but looking smart is a big threat to management.

    Cons

    The atmosphere on the first floor is similar to a high school. There is a lot of bullying going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start from scratch. Need major overhaul here.

    I have been working at GAB Robins

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive, easy to get by without working. If you are in favor you can do anything you want. People can work here for decades and do nothing if you know the right person.

    Cons

    Management changes every few years and the latest is the worst ever. A chairman that litetrally does nothing. He does not have one document on his company PC. A figurehead that does not get along with the rest of management. He is being paid millions for nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some business development experts. Trim the bloated Finance area. Stop milking the company. Do not cut hours of full time employees in order to make them part time, do not cut benefits, Do not expect 37 hours for for 29. Resign.

    Pros

    Property work. Opportunity to work in "cats". Understand need for time off. Loose management style with out micro managing workers.

    Cons

    Numbers. review of numbers only to form plan / opinion of needed action regardless of what makes up the numbers.

    Listen, Don't over load employees. If you've never done the job, then give it a whirl so you'll know what the employees are up against.

    Former Employee - Insurance Adjuster
    Former Employee - Insurance Adjuster

    I worked at GAB Robins

    Pros

    the closeness between adjusters, sharing of ideas regarding insurance policies, great company for you to grow with, credible and knowledgable colleagues, managing own work time and balancing between travelling and working and at the same time visiting sites for evaluation. Presence of subject matter experts increases your experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes, too many cases were given to the adjusters and balancing between travelling and completing the reports according to the timelines are quite challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to show good performance and examples to the new adjusters of which is very much appreciated... try to retain the adjusters by offering more competitive salary.
