    Pros

    Benefits. Vacation days - 15, based on previous work experience. Sick days - unlimited (but be realistic about it). Work from home possible, but occasionally. Decent cube - just for miself. Bunch of tecnologies you can work on. Mostly friendly environment.

    Cons

    Apparent disconnect between QA and development due to long lasting negligence of standards on the QA management side. Incomplete error reports, lack of understanding the basic needs, overprotecting testers that keep doing lousy job. A quote: "I am not going to add more details just to make developers happy". A Manager?

    Advice to Management

    Developers need respect when working hard to earn it, just like any other species on Earth. That's why good ones are leaving.

    Great company to work for. Benefits that come along with being a salaried employee are high, including PTO, Kings Island Company Day, Cincinnati Zoo tickets, etc. Some departments are better than others.

    IT is way behind the times. Turnover is high,

    Pros

    For my department flexible on working from home and family events. Good coworkers, management is hit or miss but when they're good they're good.

    Cons

    Promotion tracks are clear yet takes a long time for qualified individuals to actually get those promotions. 8 months of weekly emails for someone who excelled and did not get promoted for 5 years (not me).

    Advice to Management

    Please make promotions within IT easier to obtain. I understand you don't want to promote the undeserving but it shouldn't take a service manager, a director, virtually every Resource Manager and then a novel to HR for all IT promotions when the business side is literally promoted by merit of how long it's been since their last promotion.

    Pros

    Overall, it is a nice company. I liked seeing some effort being made to increase automation and be more efficient. This is important with the shrinking headcount.

    Cons

    To get better results from employees, need to invest in some training. Beware of the HR department (issues with confidential info being shared, hit or miss enforcement of standards). Before you jump in, check how your department operates and the teams within. Some departments are ok, while others are toxic across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, value fairness, and don't promote people into management who hate working with people.

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment if you allow it to be.
    Work from home 1 day a week after you have been here for 18 months.

    Cons

    Salary compared to industry is far below.
    When the underwriters are told something will happen to help with workload, not only does that not happen but they do the opposite. I say this with 3 major changes that come to mind just within the last year.
    You are not reviewed on how well you do your job, but who you know or suck up to.
    Chance to grow through personal Lines is practically impossible. You will have to go to commercial underwriting first. Plus there you have a whole lot of less work and you get paid more.

    Advice to Management

    Common sense is the stance you take when underwriting policies. Use this same practice when determining how to treat your employees.
