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

    Pros

    I have been at quite a few companies, and I can honestly say that Amerisure is where I feel most valued and you are rewarded for your efforts! It doesn't hurt that Amerisure also has:
    - Great benefits and good pay
    - Flexible working options (remote work/ Flex time) leading to great work/life balance
    - Great people to work and interact with
    - Managers that actually care about your development (One's I've had at least)

    Cons

    The only thing I can really think of is maybe adding a rotational program for those that want to get into higher management.

    Pros

    Employees that are passionate and dedicated to the success of the company and people on their teams. From an Information Technology standpoint the company (Business & IT) will look at solutions to determine Build vs. Buy and makes informed choices.

    There are interesting projects to work on from Warehousing, BI Reporting, Web Development and Mobile. IT Management is very open to hear ideas and adopt new technology and techniques when the business case / technology is presented.

    There are some negative reviews from a few years back, but mostly related to a large project that really stressed resources for close to 1.5 years. That was a learning for the company as a whole related to planning and resources. There has been some significant changes made from a Project Management (PMO) standpoint related to resources, planning, and setting expectations for realistic workloads and timelines.

    Cons

    Flat organizational structure, but due in part to being a small company.

    Pros

    Very low micro-management with a high degree of flexibility. Consistently challenge employees to deliver quality work product. Very good compensation package. Markets are consistent, which allows employees to become experts in the few market segments that are written. Amerisure is a Mutual company, with development of agency partnerships as a key foundation. All decisions are made to the benefit of agency partners, not shareholder.

    Cons

    Underwriting has tendency to underwrite against recent Cat losses across the board, rather than a focused approach, which at times feels knee-jerk. Managers may display preferential treatment among direct reports, including special projects, which has a direct effect on annual compensation. Ambiguous guidelines for advancement inter-departmentally - the stick is visible, but the carrot is blurry. Very much a 'be more like THAT guy' approach to promotion, rather than an objective guideline for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent approach to promotion and guidelines for advancement. Objective review process that focuses on individual successes, rather than the individual compared against an unattainable idea of an imaginary top-performer. Ability to relocate seems to be the only opportunity to advance.

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

    Pros

    Awesome company!! There are many good folks at the top. The issue that the folks that they have in the field are not in sync with reality...watch out to get what you are promised. And if you what to be micromanaged in every way, this is the place for you

    Cons

    Management is micromanaged, there are not set things for folks to do, the systems are way outdated. If you want to win in a job here, it is always searching for folks who may know the right answer or who will make things up and when you are called out on things, they defend themselves. Comical...that is not how today's world works

    Advice to Management

    PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLKS ON THE GROUND TRYING TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN! WE ARE NOT IDIOTS AND THE JOB THAT IS PRESENTED IS NOT WHAT YOU ACTUALLY SIGN UP FOR! ASK FOR WHAT PEOPLE NEED WHEN THEY ARE "THROWN INTO" THE JOB. SUPPORT AND NOT TALKING DOWN TO PEOPLE IS A GOOD THING!!

    I have been working at Amerisure full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the management team you work for, your thoughts and opinions about the tasks of your job on listened to and considered to be valuable. You are inspired to always think outside of the box and the best ways to provide service to both your external and internal customer. Training for underwriters is very thorough. Over the years, the culture has evolved to bring on board some great people to work with.

    Cons

    There are still some old style managers [maybe some new ones too] that appear to not be questioned for some of their actions or decisions that have adverse impacts on their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember everyone when making big decisions.

    I worked at Amerisure full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned much, as the setting was such you work amongst other departments which allowed learning "big picture" cause and effect.

    Cons

    Micro managed, unreasonable workload. Could not discuss honestly any issues without repercussion, including HR. Asks for "anonymous" feedback, but then heard manager discussing who wrote this or that. No trust. Were required to give positive reviews to "Best Place To Work" in individual cities.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for discrimination that is going on, but ee's are too afraid to say anything. They would rather find another job and make the miserable experience history.

    Pros

    Company lives up to its promises to its agents and employees. Innovative strategy was implemented decades ago and is still a differentiator. Family type culture similar to those common in the industry 15+ years ago. High % of employees have tenure in excess of 10, 20 and even 30 years. Great relationship with customers. Overall Amerisure is a very good place to work.

    Cons

    Many tactics, processes and procedures are way behind the times. Low levels of turnover mean fewer opportunities to advance. Efforts to modernize lead to some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, just make sure the pace is manageable. Doing things slowly and right is better than doing them fast and wrong.
