Pros

Fair pay, flexible work schedules in most departments and pretty good benefits. There is a big emphasis on diversity and work, life balance.

Cons

Senior Management, and much of Middle Management are very fearful, distrustful and ignorant of technology. For years it has been seen as a necessary evil, and only embraced when it could offer more metrics. Technology to make the work more efficient, easier or faster takes a back seat to 'what reports can I get out of it?" The technology departments are also being gutted. Layoffs have stripped IT departments of most of their experience.

Advice to Management

Spend more time opening lines of communication across and within offices. Listen to your people, not your Veepees and Directors. The EOS is only reflecting what those who still care have to say. All those middle of the road answers reflect people who don't think you care.

    Pros

    -great work/life balance
    -most of the senior team in my department have been with the company 10, 15, 20+ years, in many different areas of the business; that shows me unlimited potential for growth within this company

    Cons

    -they don't make it a secret that the pay is mid-range; I earn much less than my peers at other companies

    Advice to Management

    -this company isn't doing nearly as bad as many of the other finance/insurance companies on the market, they should pay their employees better
