    I have been working at CSAA Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)


    There are no reasons or excuses not to proactively contribute to a culture of performance at our company. We are encouraged to apply ourselves for personal and professional growth - with a clear focus on values and favorable impact on the experiences of our customers/members. Adaptability, flexibility, and balance is cultivated and supported for us to be the company our customers/members continually need now and into the future. We say it, and we create the space and focus to do and be just that.


    In ever-changing/evolving expectations of customers/members in a technology-filled and enhanced world, our focus on ensuring a dynamic culture feels and seems just right.

    Advice to Management

    Balancing the need for speed and agility, we need to continue recognizing the value/power of employees and ensure sensible/effective/sustainable approaches are in place for them to thrive, and thereby our company to thrive in service of our customers/members and employees.
