    Bad management, no skills and no people skills

    Screen your management better, keep Rick Smith as president that man knows his insurance inside and out and does a great job as a manager, and he truly cares about his employees!

    They have good benefits & PTO days along with scheduled holidays. They will promote from within before hiring outside the company.

    Depending on what department you work in you don't have a lot of flexibility.

    I have been working at Meadowbrook Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice work week. Treated with respect. Tuition reimbursement. Not micromanaged. Satisfactory benefits package.

    Cons

    Company Needs to offer more PTO. Get with technology and work/life balance. For example, invest in either buying or leasing laptops for all employees as their PC at work, so they can take them home, and work from home from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with an improved PTO package to retain and keep good top-performing employees and keep them happy. I came from a public company that is about the same size and I had 3 weeks PTO to start with first year, at 2 year anniversary 4 weeks, at 5 year anniversary 5 weeks, and at 7 year anniversary 6 weeks!!! (the max) They offered great paid time off, and Meadowbrook should too. It really retains and keeps top performing employees.....That made it VERY difficult to leave, but I decided to because the Managers were unnecessarily micro managey, they were laying off groups on a yearly basis, including executives, and the work environment became just too difficult to tolerate after years of employment! I think Meadowbrook should offer retirement incentives and/or arrange special jobs/schedules to those that are above retirement age. There are some people pushing 70-80 years old that just can't perform their job and it makes things difficult for everyone around them.

    Continue being accessible.
