    I have been working at Grange Insurance (Columbus) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Almost anyone will go out of their way to help you. They will have potlucks often. Have a good gym at headquarters. Cafeteria is average but local German Village restaurants are great. Dress is business casual with casual Fridays and frequent jeans weeks with a donation to United Way charity.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get an interview, you MUST have an employee referral or don't bother. Training is largely word of mouth and position shadowing which leads to inconsistent standards and processing. There are 1-3 unique systems per process which makes for a steep learning curve to process anything. The managers do not coordinate with each other well. Managers attitudes vary so it is not an all bad or all good situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with clear directives to drive all the way to completion.

    Great Work-Life Balance/Intern Program

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Grange Insurance (Columbus) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    One of Grange's primary focuses is work-life balance for associates. They manage to accomplish this while fostering an extremely productive and high-achieving work environment. As an intern, there was a distinct focus of bringing the interns together from all the disciplines on a large corporate project. It was great getting to know everyone and built a terrific atmosphere!

    Cons

    The insurance industry can be very dry and over-technical. Nothing against Grange, just the industry as a whole.

    I worked at Grange Insurance (Columbus) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to park
    Nice location
    Some friendly people

    Cons

    Several incompetent managers that push for unachievable deadlines and ill-defined tasks so that they can blame lower level when (as always) the project fails or is exceedingly late

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on managers that give 10+ people negative reviews year after year after year

    Unless you work in the Home office with easy access to training, you will be limited to any upward promotion.

    I have been working at Grange Insurance (Columbus) part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly, management is very lateral so interaction / having relationships with your supervisors and managers is very common.

    Cons

    My department was only open 8a-6p M-F and required me to work 20 hours / week, but I am currently a student and most of my classes are during that time. If there were more hours available to work, I would have gladly stayed with Grange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful about trying to do anything to save a quick buck. Forcing call center workers to not have any break or very minimal time (seconds) between calls will make things more stressful leading to an unhappy workforce.

    I have been working at Grange Insurance (Columbus) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The entire company has a well balanced view of work / life demands. Still small enough where most people know eachother and the CEO is likely to call you by name if he passes you in the hall. Unlike some other companies, tenured employees are still highly valued and not left to die on the vine. Good benefits, good culture.

    Cons

    I have no cons to share, it's really a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Grange Insurance (Columbus) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It has a friendly, flexible and supportive company culture. The office building is well-designed and facilities such as office system, gym, restaurant are great.

    Cons

    The communication among different business units is needed to improve. The office spaces seemed to create some pressures for me.

    Needs processes improved

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Grange Insurance (Columbus)

    Pros

    On site nurse, work out room, outside walking track. Covered parking, nice cafe. Many people have been there more than 20 years.

    Cons

    So much could be improved upon- but they are steadfast in old ways saying 'that is always how it has been done'. Many people have been there more than 20 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more continuous improvement specialists so waste can be reduced. Stop holding on to obsolete processes.
