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

    Pros

    Wonderful location, awesome people. I really enjoyed my time there and wouldn't mind going back. Some times the work load was unbalanced, however that is everywhere.

    Cons

    I was on contract and was not kept, I wish they didn't outsource so much. Just hire directly to Liberty Mutual.

    Advice to Management

    Just hire people directly, it is such a job getting a job these days. It would be nice to just be hired outright. No hoops to jump through.

    Pros

    - Good entry-level jobs with opportunities for advancement - Hours are very good - Salary and benefits are competitive though not outstanding

    Advice to Management

    Foster innovation via allowing more ground-level risk-taking rather than creation of artificial innovation teams and initiatives.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are nice and some of the people are very nice.

    Cons

    They micro manage everything you do, they have two time reporting systems, automated tracking of all tasks, endless meetings, 1:1 requirements with your manager every two weeks to go over your tasks. They have tons of corporate training you have to take for legal reasons dealing with respect of people, bias ect. Its like they feel everyone is a womanizer or a child that can not perform as a professional. They follow an Agile development plan where they burn you out with endless 2 week springs and tons of meetings and micromanagement to the point you never can keep up. Very little opportunity to move up.

    Advice to Management

    View your staff as professionals, give them a deadline and if they don't meet it then apply that to their performance reviews. End the micromanagement and get rid of this burn out Agile methodology.
