    Awesome place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

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

    Supportive Culture

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

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

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

    Needs processes improved

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    Great enviroment Employee friendly

    Adjuster (Current Employee)
    Lexington-Fayette, KY

    ProsInvestment in their own work product including their employees

    ConsPromotions are limited in the field offices

    Advice to Senior ManagementBUILD a training department in Columbus. There are other areas that an employee can expand with Grange other then becoming a LOB manager...Underwriting, sales etc.

    Bad Culture

    Claims (Current Employee)

    ProsNice building downtown Columbus. Cafeteria and exercise facility at home office.

    ConsNo training will prepare you for how to get work done around here. It's like a highschool (the bad part of highschool). Perception is everything. IT and project management is a mess. Opportunity to advance or move around is very limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to change the culture to one of cooperation and teamwork.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very good so far

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment - everyone I've had to deal with was very professional
    Opportunities for advancement
    Achievements are recognized - Got title promotion and significant raise after 1 year just for doing my job well

    ConsBeing a small insurance company makes it a challenge to manage expenses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep encouraging employees to do good work, and lead by example, like my current manager does.

    Quiet good people

    Strategy (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsA company that's good to its employees. Employees have a good work/life balance and are generally well treated. The company also has a very good system of values. I felt like my coworkers were all reasonably smart good-natured people.

    ConsTeams are very siloed and innovation is not actively encouraged. The company is behind the times with sales and marketing strategies. The innovators in the company are doing one-off things on their own initiative and time. When I worked there even simple things like a CRM system were not in place. I describe the culture as quiet because I think everyone keeps their head down at their desk and does their job. But sometimes it's okay to make a bit of noise and improve things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlace innovation at the forefront. Don't just talk about it do it. From a perspective of assets, Grange actually has the assets to be more nimble than its larger competitors - the only thing stopping it is its own stomach for change.

    Culture is very rewarding, respectful, and open. Great place to work, but not many opportunities for advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsThey really care about their employees and treat them well. There is an option of flexible work schedule depending on your work natural. Promoting work-life balance.

    ConsMid-small size company, so doesn't have a lot of room for move up. But you can definitely move around within the company. They have strong financial assets, but the current business isn't growing strongly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
