    I worked at Old Republic National Title (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great mid-western company with a balanced approach to work and life. Treatment of employees has always been a strongpoint of this company. Great benefits, even better in some cases than those of the medical device manufacturers.

    Cons

    Company for which I worked Old Republic National Title Insurance Company NYSE (ORT) profits or losses are tied directly to the real estate market and down markets can cause deficit spending rather quickly, lay-offs are an unfortunate result of these.

    Advice to Management

    When more than one level of management exists between production and upper management, or between sales and upper management, it would prove beneficial to create expectations and then carry those expectations right from the top down to the bottom making everyone aware what the corporate demands or objectives truly are. Once such objectives trickle through several layers of management, the truth rarely filters through.

    I have been working at Old Republic National Title full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people there are enjoyable to work with. Pretty decent amount of vacation time is given. They try to do fun things around the office.

    Cons

    General morale is pretty poor. People that go above and beyond are rewarded with the same crappy 2-2.5% raise. That's when we're lucky and get raises at all. They call it a merit raise but everyone gets the same percentage. People are not paid what they are worth. It's more based on who you know. Most managers don't encourage growth. But the don't do much promoting within anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving people raises based on their actual performance. Your top performers are realizing putting in the extra effort isn't getting them anywhere.

    Pros

    Good, solid, conservative company that has weathered the financial storm through far-sighted economic planning. Annual reports for the past several years show a sense of humor in bleak conditions.

    Cons

    Settle into you cubicle because you will be there forever. Knowledge management, knowledge sharing, and communication is difficult and guarded at the division level.

    Advice to Management

    "Talent Management" is more than an HR buzzword. Regional and division management is burying great talent at lower levels while managing their divisions in routine mediocrity. Home office is unaware of talent available and underused. Why would they let middle management squander an asset? The company needs to take an inventory of the resources it has in its employee base and maximize that value. Take a look at your division leaders when results are unfavorable, rather than looking at their excuses.
