    I worked at Auto-Owners Insurance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pension, Christmas Bonus, Profit Sharing. You'll notice that these are consistently the only three positives.

    Cons

    Absolutely the worst management I've ever witnessed. When you bring this to the attention of the company, you are literally black balled from any kind of advancement....doesn't matter how good you are as an employee. Management does not follow the core values....in other words....they don't know how to lead by example. Your raises will be a joke, and don't even think about trying to negotiate for more. I once brought...

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people. Really listen to your employees. Notice when there is a problem, and take immediate action. Don't ignore those with the guts to have a voice. Instead reward them for being future strong leaders. Stop stomping on the will and passion of others. Stop rewarding the low achievers, and just let them go. It's ok to fire people that are not competent to do his/her job. You're only fostering and...

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

    Pros

    • Great Profit Sharing • Christmas Bonus • 37.5 hour week • Pension • Great Health care package This Job is really for someone who wants to get comfortable with what they are doing and coast. Low stress but also little movement for people who are more ambitious. This may be a perfect job for some people.

    Cons

    Low pay and little movement or direction to management and no parallel career path to a senior role. The Senior role is basically an entry level position with little to no additional responsibly or compensation. Started at less than $40k a year, which I had family members literally laugh since I had a 4-year business degree. The culture is odd here, almost a robotic atmosphere with when to come in and leave for the day...

    Advice to Management

    Create a clear path for entry level positions on how to move up and pay a competive salary, especially in the finance area.

    Current Employee - Software Developer 

    I have been working at Auto-Owners Insurance full-time

    Pros

    The people are friendly and there is a great corporate culture. There is a year-end bonus of 1% for every year of service up to 10%. You have a chance at a profit sharing bonus.

    Cons

    Low salary, even for an area that doesn't have a very high cost of living. No "work from home" option. No "flex time" option (so you are at work 8.5 hours a day despite their claimed 7.5 hour workday). No employee fridges for lunches.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to the employees more to make it a great place to work instead of just a great place to retire from.

    I have been working at Auto-Owners Insurance full-time

    Pros

    The company truly cares about the employees and their insureds, pleasant and friendly work environment, helpful coworkers, 37.5 hours per week, defined benefits pension plan, profit sharing and Christmas bonuses. Overall a very low stress almost Pleasantville type place to work.

    Cons

    You will be underpaid no matter what you do, low expectations leads to a culture of mediocrity and "Eh whatever." If you really care about your work you may find yourself saying "I can work my butt off and get a 4% raise or I can semi-loaf and get a 4% raise."

    Pros

    There are a lot of wonderful people at AO who feel loyalty to the company. The company works to keep its employees, offering profit sharing plans, bonus incentives, and retirement plans including a pension. Management likes to promote from within and the CEO is always from inside the company.

    Cons

    Does not have a strong maternity leave program.

    I have been working at Auto-Owners Insurance full-time

    Pros

    You can be horrible at your job and still keep it. Profit sharing...not guaranteed though. Brainless work. 37.5 hour week, but paid for 40.

    Cons

    Zero accountability. Core values not followed. Terrible morale at specific branch location. Human Resources and Management do not care. Wrong people put in management roles. 20% below average in salary, and forget negotiating. Branch offices placed in dump towns, so it's difficult to recruit top talent. Take too long to promote and move real talent, which causes good people to leave. Just when I think I saw it...
