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

    Pros

    Great Benefits , Above average 401 K match ,

    Cons

    Callous company that does not care about employees , IT Management that lacks real understanding of ITSM, ITIL or the Core technologies they are attempting to implement and support , Most of the older IT talent has left for other companies due to poor IT management and the frustration of not being able to do their jobs with integrity. The company is now relocating and Dumping on the rest of the IT Employees.

    Advice to Management

    The best employees are the ones that feel that they are wanted and appreciated. You can not buy all people, but you can earn their adoration and they will help you to succeed . Give Back to the Community , Find a Cause and make it a corporate cause (JDRF, March of Dimes, Habitat for Humanity )

    I have been working at Arch Capital full-time

    Pros

    The people here are so welcoming and willing to support one another in any way. the Greensboro location is in the middle of downtown which makes it very easy for our department to get involved in the community.

    Cons

    Arch East and Arch West are still operating on different systems which makes onboarding a little difficult. They are working to merge the processes, so hopefully all issues will be cleared up shortly.

    I worked at Arch Capital full-time

    Pros

    Career Growth
    Training Opportunities
    Benefits
    Maternity Leaves
    Healthcare Coverage

    Cons

    Treatment of employees
    Knee jerk layoffs
    No compassion for employees
    Overall disorganized

    Advice to Management

    Previously worked for United Guaranty - Great company to work for until merger with Arch Capital. Advice to new management - treat associates like real humans, especially when they're being let go on day #1 of new company and were blindsided. Get to know employees before making knee jerk cuts - employees are more than just a salary - several people let go would have made great contributions if they got a chance to learn about associates strengths.Also, vendors for job placement and COBRA are not of quality.
