    I have been working at Insurance House full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic training program for the production underwriter/broker trainee position. Comprehensive and educational program that introduces you to all sides of the surplus lines insurance industry. Overall this is the perfect place to start. You get the attention you need to sharpen your skills, training for ASLI certification and a pretty solid paycheck. Upper management is focused on you and wants you to succeed.

    Cons

    This isn't a position for someone who just wants to scoot by, or someone who isn't self-motivated. This program caters to employees who are ambitious and willing to work hard.


  2. Poor management with obvious major issues running deep throughout the company.

    I worked at Insurance House full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can possibly make competitive salary, although on a temporary basis.

    Cons

    Leadership is close-minded and attempts to run business based on textbook model. Leadership and management have no experience at ground level, leading to blanket policies that are wasteful. Turnover is terrible, excess of 75% to 80%. The only people who have stayed longer than 2 or 3 years are upper management. Common sense approach does not exist at Insurance House. Take my word and view employment with this company as a very short term solution, regardless of what you are told. Please use common sense when judging incentive compensation. You will never have "your book" of business here. If you show success, "your book" will be divided, reduced, or changed as management sees fit. My advice is to reach out to other current and former employees through linkedin and other sources.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the organization with real talent that has common business acumen.

    Insurance House is a good place to learn about the non-standard insurance industry.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great at this company, as well as renumeration for workload.

    Cons

    The culture in terms team-bonding and cohesiveness can definitely be improved upon. Management showing more leadership and level-headedness during crunch periods also needs addressing.

    Advice to Management

    There are a significant amount of young people in the company now - create an environment where they feel more comfortable, as opposed to the sterile, stereotypical office currently on offer. Buying one ping pong table and hoping for the best is not sufficient.
