I worked at Unico American full-time (more than an year)Pros
I had the pleasure of working for this company, and had to leave to pursue another opportunity in an unrelated field.
Having said that, I remember looking at this GlassDoor page prior to my hiring at Crusader and feeling some hesitations. However, after having spent a few years at Crusader I felt compelled to write a more accurate review.
Crusader is a really unique insurance company to work for. You have the opportunity to work alongside every facet of an insurance operation. You get a deeper understanding of the ways in which claims, underwriting and marketing all work together.
In addition, management recognizes hard workers, and these employees’ efforts do not go unnoticed. There is a huge opportunity for personal growth here as well as professional development.
The President of Crusader is hands-on and engaged in the operation. He is genuinely interested in his employees reaching their full potential. Additionally, everyone in leadership/managerial roles is approachable and extremely knowledgeable.
This was and remains a great place to work and leaving was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made.Cons
If you do not intend to work hard, you probably won't do well here. The Company is looking for motivated people, and you can tell that by the people that have worked here for 5, 10, 15, 20, or more years.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have been working at Unico AmericanPros
SLOW so you can pretty much do anything you want online as long as management doesn't catch you. But they will and then you'll get fired.Cons
Terrible communication from management to employees which is then seen as terrible communication by Unico employees to the customers. Inconsistent job duties and approval levels. You never really know what you are supposed to do because it changes in the next 5 seconds and you're stupid for not knowing. Employees are allowed to disrespect customers and each other. Everyone just concentrates on trying to figure out the CEO's constantly changing mind. And yes, he must review nearly EVERYTHING that the company underwrites. He is really the only underwriter.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Treat your employees like you actually want them to be there. Give them consistent guidelines and communicate any change WELL in advance. And give them some authority, make them feel less like data entering robots and more like underwriters. Promote those who work hard and have good relationships with the clients, not those who spend their entire day talking on the phone or texting while work should be done.Doesn't RecommendDisapproves of CEO
