    I have been working at Cincinnati Financial full-time

    Pros

    Historically, few layoffs and reasonable benefits. Good teamwork among the associates.

    Cons

    Focus has increasingly been on numbers and percentages rather than quality of work. Management is not focused on associates despite a management role specifically created for that purpose. Associates are not given true reasons behind decisions. Very little flexibility despite the growing trend toward flexibility across IT in other companies. Few upper management/officer positions filled by women or minorities. IT directors do not agree among themselves on many policy issues, resulting in different rules for different areas of IT.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people! Many who have worked there many many years are trying to give you the message that things have changed drastically - and not for the better.

    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.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
