The History of A.M. Best Company
The Insurance Information Source
A.M. Best Company, founded in 1899 by Alfred M. Best, has grown steadily over the past century and continues to expand into the new millennium.
The company first operated out of a single room in New York's financial district. In 1920, it moved to its own office building on nearby Fulton Street, where it remained for 45 years. By 1965, when larger offices were needed, the company moved to Morristown, NJ.
Rapid growth soon necessitated another move in 1974 -- this time to the company's present global headquarters in Oldwick, NJ. With a new wing constructed in 2000, the company doubled in size. To address the increasing globalization of the insurance industry, A.M. Best expanded into a worldwide operation and established a London office in 1997, which in 2010 was divided into two separate companies, A.M. Best Europe --- Rating Services Limited and A.M. Best Europe ---Information Services Limited. A.M. Best Asia-Pacific was established in Hong Kong in 2000. In 2012, A.M. Best established an office in Dubai.
What started out as financial reporting in the early 1900s has grown to more than 50 publications and services that meet the diverse demands of the ever-changing insurance industry. Today, more than 400 analysts, statisticians and editorial personnel are dedicated to providing the insurance industry with the most complete, accurate and up-to-date financial and operating information.

management - great managers who care about their employee's professional growth.
old fashioned - but this is changing
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at A.M. Best (Oldwick, NJ) in January 2017.
I applied through a consultant - Got interview call very quickly.
They took my interview - there were 3 interviewees, then after gave me two written papers.
They did not offer me due to some reason.
After waiting a long I got the news from the consultant that I am not selected.
