I have been working at ICW Group full-time (More than a year)
Team like atmosphere, cares about employees, listens to employees and tries to compensate high performers fairly. Spends a lot of time training employees, and is always sharing relevant information. Very sensitive to your time, meetings are not mandatory and even when they are they give you a couple of choices as to the times to go. If you can't make it, someone will fill you in. Very team orientated, were all in this together.
Lots of change, sometimes too fast. Remote workers don't have the same support at in office. Sometimes new stuff can be confusing when it's launched too quickly or some people don't get the right information. Luckily they don't hold it against you and if you speak up, someone will jump in and help you. If you didn't say anything you could sink though. They put a lot of trust in their employees, not necessarily a bad thing you just have to be a go-getter.
Advice to Management
Give employees more time to learn the new information your putting out. Keep working on the work life balance, it's getting better slowly
I applied online. I interviewed at ICW Group (San Diego, CA) in June 2017.
First Interview: Phone Screening
Second Interview: Interview in the office. Took a 12-minute Wonderlic Test, followed by a formal interview with the Underwriter Manager. The formal interview were standard questions read from a sheet of paper that they ask all interviewees. Very generic situational questions, asking you to explain a scenario when you had to deal with whatever it was.
