    There are no positive reasons to work here.

    No trust amongst co workers, they will backstab you if/when given the chance. No promotions, no career growth, bad managers/supervisors.

    I worked at A.M. Best full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have heat in the winter. Of course, with global warming, it is becoming less of a selling point.

    Cons

    I found that the knowledge transfer was from me to the company - I provided the expertise.

    You may not gain any transferable skills and in today’s job market, that makes a career at A.M. Best very unappealing and downright damaging to your long term career goals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The CEO deserves the outcome of his efforts. And if he doesn't care, why should you?

    I have been working at A.M. Best full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus and buildings, great people and relatively stress free environment. Diverse workforce. Outstanding work/life balance. Other perks include on site cafeteria, free coffee and quarterly employee luncheon and/or activities.

    Cons

    Slow pace and rigid decision making process due to layered management structure, which could lead to frustration for those accustomed to a more rapid fire environment. Painfully slow in adopting simple modern business initiatives such as casual dress (men still required to wear ties) and work from home policies, let alone larger business strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Need regular and consistent communication from ownership senior management on company goals and objectives so that employees know how and where they fit into company strategies in order to align their work efforts to those ends.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Some people change their schedules a bit. Option to work from home. If you have something to do and need to leave early, you can always make up the time through the week without taking personal time.

    Cons

    Things move very slow in this company.

    I have been working at A.M. Best full-time

    Pros

    The job offers a great work/life balance if you can get your work done on time. As an analyst you have 4-5 weeks of pto and the one work from home per week. Most employees in ratings work from 7:30-3:30, but some work later as well. Time management is a key to success... one other added benefit is that the company has an outstanding professional designation reimbursement program. It fully funds most of the desired programs and has raises built in for each passing grade.

    Cons

    Change has happened rather often. Management is continuously updating tools and processes to bring the company up to date. In addition, some deparodents outside of ratings seem to have horror stories of poor management and team work. Going outside of your division to offer ideas is almost never received lightly.Trying to prove yourself can be very difficult. Office politics are 100% present

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more team building activities and cross department work. Make sure your employees are fully aware of any changes and involve them in the discussions.
