Assistant Manager, Commercial Auto
“I am continually growing.”
Location: Jersey City, New Jersey
Year of Hire: 2001
Degrees and Certifications:
I review and oversee commercial automobile insurance line analysts’ revisions for ISO’s Commercial Lines Manual. Insurers use the manual and its revisions to help develop their insurance policies and rates. I also collaborate with other departments to ensure we release quality products that comply with each state’s insurance laws. I use my writing and analytical skills frequently to research and write summaries on court decisions and laws and for insurance department correspondence. I also respond to various customer inquiries about our products.
I enjoy the research involved in creating and improving our products, as well as the interaction with others at ISO. I truly feel challenged by my work, and I like that I’m continually growing as an employee through all the projects I’ve been involved with.
ISO has enhanced my career in many ways. I began as a publication support analyst, editing and reformatting filings created by commercial and personal insurance line analysts. After three years, I had the opportunity to work in the general liability line division. During my years in general liability, I handled a multitude of projects. I wrote policy language, researched cases and laws, made presentations, mentored coworkers, and served as a member of several insurance lines committees.
This past year, I was promoted to assistant manager in the commercial auto line division. So far, it’s been an amazing experience. Not only do I get to use my insurance lines knowledge, but I’ve also had the opportunity to help other line analysts realize their own potential.
I’ve made many friends at ISO. Our company has encouraged my growth as an individual. For example, ISO supports my participation in several insurance-related courses and exams. ISO also has a community involvement program that lets me participate in a volunteer reading program. In addition, our company offers a health and wellness program, which has motivated me to keep fit and taught me ways to maintain my health.
Director, Commercial Property Software Development
Verisk Insurance Solutions - Commercial Property
“Each challenge is unique and interesting.”
Location: Jersey City, New Jersey
Year of Hire: 1998
Degrees and Certifications:
I’m responsible for the Development Factory at Verisk, and I oversee projects from all corners of the enterprise. The most interesting part about working on those projects is the opportunity to understand the business needs of our customers and provide technical solutions.
The thing that excites me most about coming to work each day is the challenge. Every morning when I wake up, I wonder what challenges I’m going to have to face today. Each challenge is unique and interesting, and the reward is the camaraderie among the individuals I work with.
I like the people here. Everyone is always looking out for what’s best for the company. I’ve been here for more than 15 years, right out of school, and I can definitely say that I made the right choice when I came to work for Verisk.
I worked at Insurance Services Office full-time (More than 5 years)
I enjoyed working as the liaison between the clients and field representatives. I also worked from home.
A lot of jobs were being made obsolete. Clients no longer needed underwriting assistants to place orders, they can do it online on their own.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Insurance Services Office in November 2015.
I started with two phone interviews as the hiring manager lives over 1000 miles away. After I passed those, I met with a Regional Vice President at a library, as the company has few 'brick and mortar' offices outside of New Jersey. I thought that the interview in a public place felt cheap and odd. It would have been more comfortable to meet in an actual office which can be rented for an hour or two from a place like Regus. Should have learned from the interview that the company is cheap!
