    Pros

    I really like my co-workers. Upper management encourages growth and they hold an annual field day and an annual employee recognition day.

    Cons

    Most of the people in my group work 45 hours a week at the office and then work another 10 hours a week from home, meanwhile, we are not allowed any overtime. All of the other departments within Interstate are allowed flex time, work from home and unlimited sick time. We are not allowed these options because our CFO will not sign off on them.

    Advice to Management

    Please make working from home more consistent across the enterprise. It's difficult knowing all of the other departments have this option is available to them meanwhile it is not available in Finance. On top of that, now we are being told that is probable that we do not have permission to use summer flex time.

    its great to have customers first but also remember the people that helped IB get where it is today. a company with your values should think about how you handle longtime employees that have dedicated their careers to Interstate.

    Pros

    It was a decent atmosphere. You could get away with a decent amount if you wanted to.

    Cons

    The bosses tended to be a hassle. They were generally in their own little word to do as they pleased.

    Advice to Management

    There are more efficient ways to do things. It would take minimal work to better your work place.
