    The people are great, and this contributes to a fantastic corporate culture. Management is personable, relatable, and provide good mentoring.


    The pay may be slightly under the going rate compared to other similar positions, and depending on the department/position, working remotely can be a challenge

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Acadia Insurance (Westbrook, ME).


    I decided to interview with Acadia Insurance without a definite intention to leave my current company. By the time I left my first round of interviews, I knew I wanted to work there. I have been with the company for over ten years now, and I haven't changed my opinion about this company. It's a great place to work. I had the opportunity to meet the president and other members of the management team. Everyone seemed to genuinely like working there and the people I met with seemed supportive of each other and positive about the organization. The interview process was welcoming and thorough. I felt informed and appreciated the opportunity to meet with peers and others with whom I would work at the company.
