    "Old boys club" feel, but decent for a starting job

    Insurance (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat location and in a landmark building on Michigan Ave. Company is small enough (at least the Chicago office - this does not apply to OR Title) for some to be noticed and move up the ranks, if qualified. Overall, a fair, ethical company that strives to make good decisions for shareholders. Good fit for employees just starting out and looking for entry level positions.

    ConsPay is not very competitive and bonuses are small. Culture is very conservative - the status quo is upheld. Don't expect many "perks" that other companies will provide, such as gym memberships, parking reimbursements, daycare, etc. The company is run very lean, which is a pro and a con. Company has been through a rough patch due to industry troubles - not completely its own fault.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A company that does not move forward.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe office location; offer benefits

    ConsIT is not current; salary is low

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst place I have ever worked in my life -- Yes, really.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsLocation is good -- on Michigan avenue and centrally located.

    ConsThe people I worked with here were just plain mean. Sexual Harassment was rampant and nothing was done about it. HR was a joke. At best it was an extremely boring place. I have worked at a few different companies -- this was by far the worst ever -- a living hell. Keep your sanity and stay away from this place!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is stodgy and set in their ways -- so any advice offered would not go far -- I will save my breath.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A solid job. Nothing exciting.

    State Filing Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsDecent company with OK benefits that has managed to weather the mortgage crisis relatively intact.

    ConsVery decentralized and not often focused on big picture issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees what they're worth.

    Don't do it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsLocation rocks - on Michigan Ave, close to public transportation

    ConsFavoritism is exhibited, Management is not willing to change, HR doesn't do a thing and the salary is so below avg it's a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the blatent favoritism and pay what is due

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They really are "People Helping People" in all aspects of the company.

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    San Ramon, CA

    ProsThe people!! There is a high level of commitment to individual and company success that shows in the decisions made and actions taken.

    ConsKnowing that there may be times when a plan holder will be disappointed because we don't cover "everything". Many plan holders have not read the plan and do not know what items are covered, so become frustrated when something they felt should be covered is clearly listed as a not covered item.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare more information. When everyone knows the goals and challenges, they can become involved in solutions and strategies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
