    I worked at Safe Auto full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, coworkers - there aren't alot of pros as they have you working 12 hour days since they cannot pay high enough to retain well-educated employees.

    Cons

    Huge turnover which makes you wonder what is going on with the company. Micro manager extraordinaire in every area. High expectations with very little direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Competitive analysis on pay throughout central Ohio would likely yield some shocking results and open their eyes to reality. You cannot retain employees when the only ones you employ are underpaid and report to managers who have a poor attitude.

    I worked at Safe Auto full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people were great, some were dedicated, and some had in-depth knowledge in their job function. There were a decent group of people there who actually had a great work ethic and took pride in what they did.

    Cons

    The atmosphere was dour. Micro-management abound, extreme work load within every department, minimal pay, and pompous expectations from low-level managers. The stress alone in that environment can take years off your life. Customers were rude; yelling at anyone who would answer the phone. Depending on the department, not many people answered their phones. More interested in sales than retention; including both internal and external customers. Completely misplaced sense of loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a limited career track for most positions within the company's structure. Don't offer child-like incentives in place of lucrative career paths. It's condescending.

    Identify those employees lacking the necessary skills through claim file audits.

    I have been working at Safe Auto full-time

    Pros

    There aren't any positive comments.

    Cons

    Company is unethical. Don't trust anyone. Believe that the executives are only out to make themselves more money. If it means walking over you in the process, they wouldn't think twice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a conscience. Take care of your employees. We are not "human capital". We are people.

    Pros

    None because they don't deliver what they promise.

    Cons

    Deceitful and unethical is all i have to say. They are all vague and unresponsive in an effort to take advantage of their employees. If you do your research and review their lawsuits you will see that is the company environment from the top to the bottom. Don't work here unless you are so desperate you can't do any better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your time is limited so continue until you get sued again.

    I have been working at Safe Auto

    Pros

    Jeans all week. I am supposed to write 20 words to explain the pros of the company but other than jeans all week there are no pros.

    Cons

    Low pay, micromanaging, CCC upper management does not have a clue. Many liars. Many, many layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure completely especially CCC upper management. They do not have the best interest of SA at heart.

    I have been working at Safe Auto full-time

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities in IT for motivated individuals.

    Recent changes in top level management have been effective and the company is now much more forward thinking.

    Great environment to work in. Casual dress.

    Compensation on par with similar local companies, descent benefits.

    Cons

    SafeAuto is struggling to gain traction in a competitive market. When the company was founded, it was a pioneer in the non-standard insurance market, but over the past decade some of the big insurance companies have entered the market.

    Legacy IT systems, which were once the key to SafeAuto's competitive advantage, are now a barrier to future growth.
