    I worked at Affirmative Insurance full-time

    Pros

    It was a very flexible environment to work in. It was comfortable and there were many leadership development activities. CEO at the time was involved and inclusive and sought out opinions of others.

    Became large which resulted in growing pains. Failed technology implementation. Never could quite a handle on the business and ended up in bankruptcy (this occurred well after I left).
