    Pros

    The overall atmosphere is enjoyable. The majority of people are fun loving and hard working. Continuous education is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    There are certain managers and directors who like to micromanage in the extreme. Those very few individuals tend to make life aggravating for the more independent thinkers.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were what made the job enjoyable. We were all in the same boat and could commiserate together. Office management understood the work load we were dealing with and would assist as best they could.

    Cons

    Upper management at the time didn't appear to have a full understanding of the goings on as it related to personal lines insurance at times. They also didn't seem to have a grasp on the amount of potential fraud that we as adjusters came across on a daily baisis.

    Pros

    Great flexibility, positive work environment, managers show appreciation for hard work

    Cons

    Senior leadership is making decisions that are bringing down morale for remote employees

    You need to truly evaluate how much productivity and value your remote employees bring to the table before making decisions adversely affecting them.

    I have been working at Kemper full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in several departments during my 10+ years with the company. I have worked with great people and learned a lot. Well-paid. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Communication from management to staff could use improvement. Advising employees about major changes before they occur would be appreciated. Nothing else negative.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees. Seek input from people on the front lines. Don't play favorites when it comes to promotions and vacations.

    I have been working at Kemper (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Immediate supervisors are really good.

    Cons

    They are just like all other large insurance companies. The do not care about their employees. They recently told all remote workers, they will have to pay for their own internet in order to connect to the company computer. Seems they want you to work out of your house to save them having to rent office space, and are now refusing to pay for internet to connect to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so cheap. You placed remote field staff to work from their homes, but now refuse to provide the very thing necessary to actually do the job - internet. This was provided upon hire and now is being arbitrarily changed. Are the financials that dire, that you'll go under if you pay for internet.
