    I have been working at AMERISAFE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork, Organized, Great Experience. I would definitely recommend anyone to that work experience. Good community, great benefits. Effective management. Employee has equal chance to advance in the company.

    Cons

    Pay rate isn’t what expected but definitely fits the needs of my everyday budget. Lots of turnover but that’s expected in a company with lots of competitors.

    Pros

    The people and the culture are the best I've seen. They are fair and driven and have a firm direction. They pride themselves on their purpose, providing protection to injured workers.

    Cons

    It is difficult to think of any. Everyone likes higher pay?

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path

    I have been working at AMERISAFE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Open and welcoming co-workers (for the most part). Typically laid back as far as work load goes. The company as a whole will do a lot for the employees, and there are a lot of additional perks with the company, including Christmas parties, Halloween is a LOT of fun, Dress down Fridays and the entire month of December, competitions, and an overall enjoyable atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly low for the work and stress level. Management (VPs) have a tendency to micro manage and can make you feel like time off is an annoyance. Vacation and personal time accrue at a miserably slow rate. Flexing time is not an option

    Advice to Management

    Improvements are being made, and they are obvious to most employees. Keep improving - continue learning, and work with employees. Keep listening to the suggestions that are being made with an open mind.

    I worked at AMERISAFE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great networking opportunities, flexible hours if you are a field employee.

    Cons

    Poor benefits, poor communication, micro-managing at many levels within the organization, low comissions, low base pay, poor pricing models, vast overlap exsits between roles.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate overlap within departments by clarifying resonsibilities, be more aggressive and write the business you want by pricing it accordingly, and leadership needs to do a much better job keeping talent in the organization and putting the right people in the right jobs.

    I have been working at AMERISAFE full-time

    Pros

    Amerisafe is a great company to work for, and does a lot for their employees. Some of the department managers can be a bit tight with the reins and tough to work for, but overall a very nice company. How many companies do you know have a company chaplain?? Many of their employees have worked their entire careers there so that says a lot. Also financially sound.

    Cons

    Below average wages company-wide -- could be because they are based in a small town in Louisiana and such wages are the norm for the area.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Really the only nice office to work in De Ridder.

    Cons

    Upper management and people who worked directly under them were back-stabbers. Low pay and stingy vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Have a problem with someone, don't write a letter to the whole company management and broadcast it.
