    Pros

    Though I have not been with Linear long, I have already had a lot of opportunities for learning different aspects of the industry and thorough training provided from the ground up by very knowledgeable management. Friendly coworkers and management. Relaxed schedule and dress code. Fast paced environment. Hard work has been recognized and appreciated.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, except that though I have enjoyed having very diverse projects, none of them have been as challenging as I might like.


  2. Fun worklplace, no stability.

    I worked at Linear Title

    Pros

    Linear had a great atmosphere. The people were the best aspect of the company. Many young professionals. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    There were too many people being laid off. They hired so many people for the busy times and then laid off half of their work force.


  3. Interesting look at the title insurance industry

    Pros

    Great coworkers, relaxed environment, very nice break room, department managers are approachable, cubicles are pretty specious (for cubicles). Computers work well, IT is available to promptly help setup and maintain computers.

    Cons

    Proprietary software tends to act up, bit of a steep learning curve, parking lot could use some better lighting at night, entry way needs better salting during the winter. Clothing policy needs to be communicated better.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe spending less on flat screen TVs that are kept to a minimum volume
    Better salting of the entry way & parking lot during the winter
    The CEO may want to walk around the various departments and talk to the rank & file

    Most important: Do a MUCH better job of handling layoffs. It's not professional (or even polite) to set up a "meeting" with a bunch of employees together just to hand off lay off notices at once. Sure, it might be more efficient, but it's also compassion-less.

    Pros

    If fearing the loss of your job daily due to poor management is a pro then this place is good for you

    Pay is low/management is poor

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the high school clique mindset and think of ways to better your company

    Pros

    Very strong process, incredible technology and highly automated. They provide training and promote from within. Virtually all of our managers (including me) have been moved up through the ranks. Many have been promoted and taken jobs in CA, NV and UT. When you are based in RI and your largest states are CA and TX then that speaks volumes to the type of company you work for.

    Cons

    Its not really an Con, but you need to be on your game to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Growing Linear and the Linear family of companies.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, good overview of many aspects of title industry, lunch truck on site and periodic lunch purchases for departments.

    Cons

    Lack of or substandard training. Employees frequently fired or demoted with no warning. Micromanaged, yet job expectations are extremely vague. Very strong atmosphere of distrust and backstabbing. Encourages mediocrity and toadyism, as those who are friends of managers are untouchable, where all others can expect to be thrown under the bus. Hard work is generally not rewarded, unless you're "in" with the brass. "Opportunities" tend to be lateral moves across departments, with no concurrent improvement in employee condition.

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism and secret-keeping are rampant and obvious, and that is hurting company morale. Developing clear training standards and giving employees a review of their shortcomings (and thus an opportunity to correct them) rather than simply firing them would help decrease errors, limit profit loss from continually training new hires and greatly improve production efficiency in the long run.
