    Senior leadership are a majority of English Blokes, who have no respect for the North American laws.

    Claims Adjuster (Current Employee)
    Rolling Meadows, IL

    ProsCo workers are nice and and insurance offering is fair , 401 K match is exceptional.

    ConsZero integrity of management that make promises to clients that are impossible to keep, then struggle when reporting to clients. Management has expectations that are unreasonable, because, they do have no idea what it takes to get the job done. Revolving door with management and executives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace your executive team with people who understand the insurance industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Technology needs a complete overhaul

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Newton, MA

    ProsGood people overall and excellent HR staff in the US.

    ConsSolutions cannot complete in the market - anywhere. They have been beat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the tech assets (all 5,000 of them from the various acquisitions and not one platform as sales says) and focus on BPO.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Greatly mismanaged - no foresight

    Claims Adjuster (Former Employee)
    Rolling Meadows, IL

    ProsCoworkers were young, fun, and easy to get along with. Company sponsored outings were fun and appreciated.

    ConsCompany greatly mismanaged from the get-go. No vision of where they should be or how to get there. Everything was "patchwork" and just recovering from disasters instead of trying to figure out how to avoid them. Manager had next-to-no claims knowledge and I had to tell him not to do things because they were illegal and we could get sued. Suggestions to management not implemented because they wouldn't tell upper management they suggestions came from their worker in fear that I would get promoted in their stead.
    VERY low pay and no bonus/raise. When the company started to lose money instead of owning up to it and figuring out why they "asked" all of the workers to take a 10% pay cut (or to leave with no severance) and work more hours for free. Once they started getting back on track managers got raises but lower level workers never got their pay level raised back to even their starting salaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a clear business plan before you enter the market (with contingencies).
    Hire middle management that has REAL experience and at a minimum knows how to do the jobs of the people they are supervising.
    Hire workers with at least some experience. If hiring with no experience you need to have a real/structured training program.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a good place to work.

    Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Rolling Meadows, IL

    ProsWas not micro-managed. Was allowed to run my unit.

    ConsNo pay raises.....ever. They did take 10% away across the whole staff.
    Company will have you train your replacement and then "lay you off."

    Advice to Senior Managementstop making the same mistakes over and over again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
