    Pros

    Coworkers are in the same boat and you can all relate to how horrible the place is.

    Cons

    Work load is completely out of control. I left there several years ago, but still have friends in there who say it has gotten even worse since my time there. Conflicting demands makes it a guarantee you will be getting a bad evaluation. You get judged for things completely out of your control. Almost everyone is on some kind of written notice. The threat of getting fired all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit managing through fear and intimidation.

    Pros

    Difficult to find any pros in this culture/environment!

    Cons

    The culture in the NE is truly horrific! I've never before encountered such blatant favoritism, unethical behavior and disrespect. It is truly amazing that Liberty Mutual has continued to allow the current management staff to run the NE for Safeco. They just had the worst employee survey results that I've ever heard of! And in the resulting "skip level" meetings with management, employees were told that they needed to "keep their mouths shut" and not share their thoughts with management. The culture is one of intimidation, threats, and retribution....definitely NOT a healthy atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Either close your NE operation or at the very least, get rid of your Claims CSMs and start over. You've got talent in your claims operation, but they can't leave fast enough due to the corrupt and incompetent management staff!

    Larger company giving one more transfer opportunities

    Cons

    Many and frequent changes in management. Leadership is a bit lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Vacation is earned but difficult to schedule. Made to feel guilty for scheduling time away with so much work to be done.

    Pros

    benefits, time-off, reimbursement for education

    Cons

    management, upper management. This place is nicknamed SLAVE-CO for a reason! Overworked and management is completely out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    work-life balance is a joke. You spend all this time trying to better yourself year to year only to get a slap in the face at the end of the year. This is not a company of diversity. This is a company of if you don't kiss butt you will not grow. Look at the numbers for a change.

    Pros

    Coworker are friendly and approachable

    Cons

    This place will dump on their front lune adjusters and set unrealistic goals for the volume coming in. When you bring it up to management attention that you are not able to meet your goals due to the volume thwy will come back really compatative and deny that it is not as bad. Morale is completely down in the department everyony is just trying to get by. Alot of favoritism, there is no equal treatment.

    Pros

    Excellent training and benefits. Flexible hours were appreciated.

    Cons

    Case load could be very large at times.

    Advice to Management

    Allowing senior employees to work from home to retain employees would be large benefit.
