    Pros

    It's a great company to work for especially if you are mobile. They give you plenty of training for your position and are very supportive of development.

    Cons

    If you are in a small regional office there are not as many opportunities for advancement as there are a lot of long-term seat warmers in leadership. Many of the regional offices are on a schedule to close in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Take better advantage of your talent pool.

    Pros

    Friendly management and coworkers. I enjoyed the work, it is fast pace so the time goes by fast. It's a friendly social work environment.

    Cons

    Pay is at the low end for associate claims adjusters. I did not like working the weekends nor working past 5:30 pm.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. All the managers there, at the time, were nice and helpful. They participate in making the work environment friendly and supportive.
