      I have been working at Auto-Owners Insurance full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great job security, people rarely ever are fired or let go. Large bonuses if the company has a good year. The work is not too challenging. Friendly coworkers.

      Cons

      Salary is around 10% lower than the industry average. The PTO is also very low compared to other companies. Very outdated operating/computer programs. Poor communication between the underwriting side and the claim handling side. Home office management is very slow to change anything at the branch level.

      Advice to Management

      Pay the employees what they are worth. Talented employees are going to consistently leave for the competition until salaries match the industry.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Auto-Owners Insurance for less than a year

      Pros

      It was my first true professional work experience. The managers were incredibly helpful and the training gets you prepared for your position. The job security seemed solid, and they liked to promote from within.

      Cons

      It was a very conservative company that I'm not sure I would have liked to stay with long term. The position I was in was extremely repetitive, after 4 weeks of training I was doing what the salaried employees were.
