    I have been working at OneShield full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good money, approachable management, autonomy to do your work well, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not the new age Silicon Valley feel if you're looking for that. Nothing amazing in terms of benefits. Lots of emphasis on work and not a ton of employee work satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think you're doing a great job. However, there should be more emphasis on making employees happy, as to compete with all the new age Google-esk companies coming about.

    Pros

    The pay was decent as were the benefits

    Cons

    Management. I cannot recall a more introverted set of manager's in my life. No direction, no input (until review time). The worst management team I have ever encountered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out top to bottom

    The date of this review and the fact that it is by a former employee suggests that it was written by an employee that was just separated. While we appreciate the point about OneShield’s competitive ... More

    I have been working at OneShield as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot since there won't be anyone to help you! Good exposure to all the LOBs of General Insurance. Pay good money to contractors.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional people, lot of bureaucracy, company doesn't have a lot of money and your job would always be at a risk. People who need sponsorship - Beware! DO NOT JOIN THEM FULL TIME!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take Action and Eliminate Bureaucracy!!!! High TIme!

    Pros

    You can get noticed if you do a good job. If you can provide an exceptional service as an employee you are very valuable.

    Cons

    This company has an abnormally high termination rate. They currently have money problems and have been laying off very good people since August due to a horrible sales campaign spanning 2010 - 2011. Prior to layoffs poor managers have routinely worked to inhibit career growth of hard working employees by providing inaccurate reviews and altered documentation to the detriment of their underlings. Good managers have not been leveraged to fill in the gaps as needed. In short this company lacks 2 key things... exceptional leadership and money. Applicants beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the infrastructure manager.

    I worked at OneShield

    Pros

    The flexible nature of the assignments and opportunity to make process improvements. There are talented people who are completely dedicated to the client's success.The team members are hard working and are always looking to "do the right thing" for the client and the development of new product features.

    Cons

    The lack of consistently (or in some cases existence) implemented and followed processes is hindering the company from getting to the next level in its development as a top tier provider. This occurs on both the product and client side development and configuration efforts. There is a somewhat myopic view by management of the value-add that individuals bring to the company in the effort to get to the next level. The approach and methods used to get to the company to the point where they are at is not effective in getting to the next level.
