    I worked at Crum & Forster full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My boss was phenomenal. To this day, he is the best boss I've ever had. He was fun, caring, compassionate and highly valued all of his employees.

    Cons

    Consolidation of the company. This ultimately led to my lay-off at the end of 2012. Despite that, I would work for this company again, given the opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.

    I have been working at Crum & Forster full-time

    Pros

    -Great work life balance: PTO starts at 20 days per year, you get flexibility around appointments, and the lower level operations staff are non-exempt so work stays at work.

    Cons

    -Dead end: horrible for anyone under retirement age. You won't have any actual skills to develop, so you won't stand a chance at making more or even getting a related job in other departments. Be ready to move to NJ, TX or CA even if you are interested in a future in insurance, because there have been virtually no openings in other offices even when a string of employees leave.
    -There's little to no reward for working hard. Your pay probably won't be that far off from the worst of slackers.

    Forward moving company, relaxed non stressful work environment.
