    I worked at Fireman's Fund Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation time / personal time off.

    Cons

    Managers are sticklers for perfection on each file but the workload given it's impossible to meet those standards unless you work 12 hours a day. Horrible work life balance. In the few years I was there as a claims adjuster employees were always scared to be fired or laid off. Led to a stressful work environment. Management just kept saying we had to work harder and we'd get more work. No relief in sight. Company consistently is on decline; idiots run that company. No communication between management and employees.

    I worked at Fireman's Fund Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work environment and the people at Fireman's are terrific. The senior management definitely cares about the rank and file employee and shows it. The work-life balance is openly discussed and promoted. There are a number of opportunities for team building, personal and professional growth both internally and with external coursework.

    Cons

    The raises were sparse...despite good profits and avoiding some large natural disaster payouts. They seem to want to reward via bonuses which are not terribly good either, rather than boost base pay. Would definitely hold out and get what you want for pay before signing on.
