I worked at Symetra full-time

Pros

I worked with a start-up program/ newly forming department; being able to develop creative solutions for those two companies was surprisingly satisfying. I would go so far as to say the experiences in that department contributed to my current career focus.

Cons

Symetra is a big business environment; which means plenty of politics and limited candid dialog between company and employee.

Advice to Management

Improve collaboration; reduce the number of chiefs between AVP's and employees.

    I have been working at Symetra full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    401k match.
    good work/life balance.
    good location.

    Cons

    majority of middle management/senior employees are old/inefficient.
    higher positions are based on longevity/seniority within the company as opposed to knowledge/efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    wipe out middle management and reopen the positions for interviews. many positions can be performed in a fraction of the current time.
