    I have been working at EMPLOYERS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have the benefit of working for a tight-knit Sales & Marketing team, despite having team members across the nation. The team has annual National Sales Meetings that are valuable because we not only go over key initiatives from all the departments in the company, and learn new things; but there are multiple team-building events and other ways to build camaraderie. Our SVP; Chief Sales Officer, Ray Wise, and his direct report, Lindsey Rynard; VP of Sales Operations, are both amazing leaders, and I know many others in all departments will agree. They are people-first and are very transparent. They are a few of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure to meet and work for. Regardless of being in the Sales/Marketing organization, every department works together well. I don't have a lot of experience in insurance, but key folks are happy to teach you if you have any questions. It may be cliche to say, but I'm truly part of a family atmosphere, despite it now being a national company. I've made some great friends in the short time I've been here. This organization is moving forward in a majorly positive direction as evolves past a traditionally stodgy industry to a leader thanks to investments in technology to benefit its appointed agents and policyholders, along with work culture to benefit its employees. This is a company worth working for, long-term!

    Cons

    The organization listened to employee feedback and is taking steps to improve internal communication.

    I have been working at EMPLOYERS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They will do everything they can do take care of you (within reason). I love working for them. They are going through lots of changes trying to get their employees more pay and more benefits across the board. This is so much more than a call center , you will be resolving a lot of issues instead of just transferring calls.

    Cons

    Short breaks, strict schedules.

    I have been working at EMPLOYERS full-time

    Pros

    Company is growing and trying to increase their foot print.

    Cons

    Only one-line insurance and service small companies that are not always credible. The management is totally numbers and stats driven. Claims quality is not a priority. This is not a diverse environment either. Diversity and equity are not a focus in claims and it is VERY VERY political and cliquish, like high school. Most of the supervisors are great-personable and know their stuff. However, beware, the manager and director are petty and play favorites.
