Pros

1. High-level of teamwork and collaboration
2. Positive, can-do, want-to-do-it environment
3. Good compensation
4. Growing and profitable company
5. Beautiful headquarters
6. You're always busy and never idle
7. Highly competent leadership goes out of their way to treat employees with respect

Cons

1. Technology and some technology-thinking is older, so for a motivated tech-oriented worker that might start to feel restrictive and for the business itself it is wasteful to have to solve problems that could have been avoided
2. The big-picture business-problems themselves are pretty uninteresting for a tech person.
3. There isn't a whole lot else in the immediate area aside from Donegal and small restaurants/bars
4. I'm not convinced that there is room for career growth for everyone on the team

Advice to Management

As a business you guys are obviously doing a great job. But realize that if you want the best in terms of technology workers, while the money and positive work environment does go a long way, you will likely need to continue to update your tools/technology and push to keep workers abreast on the best-practices as they evolve in order to attract the best and keep them. IMHO technology workers that live and breath this stuf, feel empowered when they are able to solve new problems, more quickly, as opposed to old, re-occurring problems slowly with old tools. By updating your tools and skillsets/practices you can prevent many problems from even occurring and save money over the long-haul. It is a win-win, but takes some vision and some motivation to change for the better.

    I worked at Donegal Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Safe Company, good pay, good bonus structure, nice campus, very intelligent workforce, alot of opportunity to grow and learn. I really enjoyed my time at Donegal and would definately consider returning should a position arise.

    Cons

    Old school mentality, no work from home or flexible scheduling option. Micromanagement.No tuition reimbursement outside of insurance classes.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, allow them to work from home or have a flexible schedule. So many people that I saw leave in my time there were under 30. These are bright young adults that are going to be needed as senior management retires.
