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

    Pros

    So far we are still here but the outlook is very negative and the office culture is non-existent. Everyone walks around with a lot of questions and there are no answers.

    Cons

    The writing company is bankrupt. There is little or no future at this point for the claims department. Overall, the mood is solemn and a lot of good people are left without many options.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and let everyone know what the chances really are so people can make decisions on what is best for themselves, family, and their career.

    I worked at Affirmative Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros about this place unless you want to be treated like a peon who is worthless in the eyes of upper management.

    Cons

    Having upper level management with no people skills whatsoever who talks down to employees with the upmost disrespect there is imaginable.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the cancerous upper management who treats people next to nothing. My experience there was bad and emotionally taxing.

    Pros

    My team was wonderful as was my boss. I felt like my director and vp really took interest in helping grow my career.

    Cons

    Company is going through chapter 11 bankruptcy. No budget to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being arrogant and understand that your employees had great ideas to pull the company out of the gutter and realize that we were not progressive insurance.

    Pros

    You can slack off as long as you meet quota. No one cares bc management does the same.

    Cons

    Company is going down hill, loosing millions each month, known how long they will be in business, new company bought out so they will have more money to loose, new company doesn't know how poor it's being operated until they loose all their money too. managers promoting themselves. Most of employees are rejects from progressive insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new job bc you will not be here soon. Company is going down hill, most of the important people have left.

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere and great fellow employees. Direct managers are encouraging and positive mostly.

    Cons

    Sale of company had employees very concerned

    Advice to Management

    Benefits matter. Losing vacation and 401k contributions plus increase cost in insurance makes it very hard to stay loyal
