    Pros

    The PAS initiative is great for this company, unfortunately the CIO is incompetent to handle it effectively.

    Cons

    IT team is really talented. But the weakest link is the CIO who is rude and obnoxious and talks behind the back of all his peers n looks down upon his IT team...Not a fun guy to work for!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put in credible people in charge of top positions

    Pros

    Small company, free lunch, flexible hours for some.

    Cons

    People deemed "special" that ignore and undermind authority as well as treat coworkers like stepping stones. It's disruptive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time and to do things right.

    I worked at GuideOne Insurance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office location was very close to home. Most insurance companies in metro Atlanta locate in north Fulton and Cobb counties. GuideOne was located in Stone Mountain away from heavy traffic.

    Cons

    Staff, including management, was not very professional. Management did not understand comprehensive claims handling and therefore did not distribute cases in fair manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote into management only experienced claims handlers

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

    Pros

    Company is in a change mode. There are several key systems being developed right now. Working location and hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Benefits are not competitive. IT Leadership is stale and could use a refresh. Too many managers are in that role because of tenure and not because they've shown leadership qualities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than working to keep your job, take better care of those who are the doers. Focus of company has shifted from employee satisfaction to business performance and that is killing morale.
