    Gore Mutual - small company autocratic environment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Gore Mutual

    Pros

    The company has a beautiful location, set alongside a park and part of the building is a historic structure with free parking. The company has a community focus.

    Cons

    The corporate cultue is very political, with an autocratic managment style that drives down from the top coupled by many long term employees in key leadership positions and little potential for advancement to senior levels.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Insurance is a recession proof industry

    Cons

    Senior management's inability to make their own decisions or redirect president's directions make employment confining as there is no ability to make alternate suggestions when major challenges are foreseen by an employee.

    Staff are blamed when Senior management's decisions turn out badly.

    Staff are not truely valued.

    Power struggles for who will be successor for Kevin's position are obvious to the organization and results in the leadership team using staff as pawns.

    Above points result in large rapid company directed turnover.
