    Pros

    I have been at Liberty for over a year now and I am thrilled with the company. My group is upbeat, intelligent and fosters a great work environment.

    Cons

    My frustration lies with the healthcare coverage. I wish it were a little more comprehensive. However, the wages they pay seem to offset that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve benefits and offer more 401k options.

    Pros

    An abundance of great opportunities at the bottom, supportive and responsive supervisors and managers. Straight forward and open compensation strategy.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any to date. There are of course the normal elements of any large organization but nothing that sticks out or has been a significant hurdle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's be the first major corporation to design a compensation package at the executive level that ends the companies financial liability to executives when they leave. The image of a few getting million dollar annual exit packages while pensions for the rank and file are constantly cutback should is a problem worthy of a solution

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good work/life balance. Plenty of opportunities to network with other interns. Good perks that come with a big company.

    Cons

    Big company means lots of "red tape."

    I have been working at Liberty Mutual Insurance full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training is comprehensive,policies and rules are laid out for everyone to see and follow, compensation is great for the NH market, tuition reimbursement program is excellent, Human Resources are always there should you have an issue, grievance or complaint.

    Cons

    Depending on the department or manager you have- the culture and environment can be drastically different from department to department. I love the company as a whole and have met some fantastic people- but unfortunately the manager I've had the last 2 years is not exemplary of what a great manager is by any means. However nearby managers I've watched treat their employees with dignity, respect and encouragement- which is why I am looking to switch departments ASAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be 360 reviews on all managers. Employees are constantly being critiqued and called out by their managers, but there is no chance for employees to let management know how they are doing as managers. Most innovative companies use this approach- I'm surprised we aren't there yet.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in Boston, MA

    I worked at Liberty Mutual Insurance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to work with great people, high level of intelligence, and top of the line technology and softwares. The bar is set very high and you are expected to keep up with the pace. There are a lot of resources if you want to learn more or expand your skill set. You are also encouraged to gain exposure to different business units and work in different groups.

    Cons

    The benefits are so-so: health insurance is a bit on the expensive side. Maternity policy is bad. Also, 37.5 hr work week seems great, but non-existent with the work load. Also, there is the "glass ceiling" if you don't move around ever year or two. Co is still somewhat stuck with the "Old Boys Club" mentality. Men definitely have the advantage, and if you don't take time out to do the "drink after work" now and then with your group, you lose credibility with your peers. Also, if you don't put in the extra effort to get "noticed", you will loose out on opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more notice and reward high performing employees with promotions and money so they don't leave.

    Set a good example for employees, challenge the status quo, cultivate a creative work environment.
