    Pros

    You must be savvy if you want to move up in the ranks. An adjuster has to take advantage of the on-line training available and be able to make time (during their personal time) to do this training. Crawford will pay for classes like AIC and even CPCU for adjusters that show the skill set and promise to move up.

    Cons

    Little work/life balance for adjusters and management. A typical adjuster work week is 50 to 60 hours per week if they want to meet their production goals and be time on their reports.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the We Go Look Model and the way you present it to our clients. Do not forget the heart and soul of this company are your licensed adjusters. Do not give fast yet mediocre service to our clients. This is not a fast food restaurant. Crawford is this first Independent Claims Adjusting firm of its kind. Let's make sure that quality remains the top priority.

    I worked at Crawford & Company full-time

    Pros

    Some coworkers are knowledgeable and helpful, but not many. Location is okay.

    Cons

    Turnover is atrocious at this company. There's a new group coming in every couple of months. Management is clueless and doesn't care to keep employees. You are just another number there. Morale is very low and everyone is looking for a way to get out. I hate to say it, but race is a factor on if you will succeed or not. Black managers look after their black employees, white managers look after white employees and so on. Pay is also terrible, they will try to low-ball you. DO NOT WORK HERE! According to the employee survey, only 14% of employees would recommend this place as a "good place to work".

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better.

    I have been working at Crawford & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work from home. ok benefits. 401K. nice new building. Good dental. Some good team mates. Nice cafeteria. State of the art reception area.

    Cons

    They basically replaced one narcissistic CIO w/ another one. Employees are still terrified that they are next on the chopping block. Mgmt is still icy and overlook great employees. Instead they hire contractors to introduce new software then have the more smart reliable employees support the application. No current long term employees are doing real development just support. I advise remaining employees to stay up on your skills new technology and certs instead of being comfortable due to number of years there. Unless you are mgmt favorite you won't get any good raises or perks of working from home daily or working remotely on "vacation" even though you work harder and don't have martial issues. Never seen anything like it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism. Pay for your faithful dedicated and reliable employees to learn new software instead of paying tons of money for contractors duh

    Pros

    Exposure to C-Suite. Gained a lot of valuable experience working in such a small HR department.

    Cons

    Very old company and not adaptable to change in the market. Very old workforce. Pay is low compared to market unless you were an adjuster. Adjusters were praised. Couldn't work from home. Only select few could.
