    I worked at Anchor General Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    Relax atmosphere for the industry, good parking, not a lot of red tape, easy to stand out if you're good and become a "favorite". That's really on you not the company.

    Cons

    Below industry pay and benefits, idiotic customers but that's their niche market, multiple inept pity supervisors spending so much time and effort on nonsense vs trying to improve morale and work quality. It's quite obvious who they are when their teams have the most turnover. Past poor logic, some supervisors lack professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with dumb lifelong supervisors. They lower morale across depts because it feels like their idiotic ideas are accepted because they are supervisors. A loyal idiots shouldn't be rewarded. It's auto insurance not rocket science. Pay better. Not sure how you expect good quality work with lower than average pay. Overworked and underpaid is how you enter DGAF mode. Again,it's auto insurance not rocket... science. Pay attention to good employees and make them feel noticed.

    Pros

    Insurance is ok. Regular staff are nice to work with.

    Cons

    IT Management has no clue how to run infrastructure. CIO is trying to centralize all access through him while turning his Admins into customer service agents. HR is a joke Very Discriminatory

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CIO, Hire competent infrastructure management.
