    OneBeacon has been a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOneBeacon has been a great place to work. I’ve always felt both challenged and supported. I will be starting a position with a new company at the end of this month but will take all that I’ve learned and the relationships I’ve made with me.

    ConsThe company had been in transition for a number of years but that is mostly in the past at this point.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Try not to let a handful of people ruin your workplace.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Canton, MA

    ProsIf you take the time to negotiate, OneBeacon can provide great pay. A few years ago they moved to nice new building in Canton, MA. It is a good company overall.

    ConsThe Legal Dept. was a little tough to work in - there was alot of turnover. The managing attorneys talked down to and negatively about employees out in the open.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a great payscale, great building, now if only upper management, (specifically attorneys) were more professional and less gossipy.

    OB is OK

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Canton, MA

    ProsThe finance department has some pleasant people to work with. Management appears to care about helping you develop professionally and be healthy.

    ConsThe company was going through a lot of changes when I worked there. The pay is low and since they went public they were doing everything possible to bring down their expense ratio, aka laying off a lot of people and taking away a lot of employee benefits. The finance department doesn't have much room for growth. It also had a very political feel to it.

    Decent place, too mired in old-school practices.

    Network Support Engineer (Former Employee)
    Melville, NY

    ProsGreat benefits package. Salary competitive.

    ConsSomewhat top-heavy. More managers than workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdapt faster with the industry.

    It has been good as long as you can deal with constant change

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Good until they split the company.

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Canton, MA

    ProsEnjoyable place to work. Talented peers.

    OK to work at, but not terribly exciting.

    Data Analyst (Current Employee)
    Canton, MA

    ProsFlexible hours, opportunity to work from home if needed. Benefits are fair.

    ConsPeople work the most insane hours; it is not out of the question to get an e-mail from someone at 6 AM on a Sunday morning. Also, everyone is right on top of one another; claustrophobes beware.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think there should be more incentive for younger people to work here- current technologies are antiquated, and there is little dynamicism within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
