    Pros

    - The people are really nice
    - Motorists treats its employees well and really invests in each employee's development and education plan
    - Most of the people in Management are down-to-earth and approachable

    Cons

    Instability. Once an industry leader and trend-setter, the company has let itself become an antiquated dinosaur with outdated systems and business practices. It has lost its industry rating and become unprofittable. As a result, leaders know they need to transform the company and drag it out of the 70s, but the plans put forward to do so are mind-blowingly asinine ! It seems that the CEO and Executive team top themselves in stupidity on a daily basis when it comes to creating a viable plan to rescue the company. No one understands their choices and people have begun to wonder if Motorists as they know it will even be around in a few years. Do they WANT to run the company into the ground ??? Sadly, there have been enough "questionable" moves that long-time employees are leaving the company right and left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Drop "The Vision"
    - Develop a real plan THAT MAKES SENSE; is modern and forward-thinking; consists of more than stupid catch-phrases and time-wasting exercises; and don't take 3 MORE years to do it !
    - when you hire new executives, please make sure that they have leadership skills and are not just all talk

    Pros

    Wonderful people, never worked anywhere that came close.

    Cons

    Change comes slow and can be painful for those driving it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek to get ahead of the pack not to merely catch up. Though you may never be the very best it is the attempt to do so which results in greatness.

    Pros

    Peers and individuals in the company are great to work with. Senior management is an absolute pleasure and very easily approachable!

    Cons

    Underpaying employees by a considerable amount when compared to other companies.

    When trying to drive a direction with new technologies constantly hitting roadblocks.

    Terrible middle-management and some upper management. Only lower management seems like they care about their employees but are obsessively micro-managed by middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate your middle management, and compensate FAIRLY your employees - turnover is high in the company, and it will continue if this is not reevaluated immediately!!!
