    I have been working at Erie Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented; The new CEO is MUCH better than the former; Competitive pay and benefits; Community outreach and volunteerism very high on list of priorities

    Cons

    Certain areas of the company don't value the work of the longtime employee. There are certain areas of the company that overlook seriously bad behavior and promote the wrongdoer out of the position instead of addressing the ongoing problem

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up on those that have been there the longest - and don't assume that just because you're getting someone trained by GE that you are getting a valuable employee - it is a known fact that many brought over from GE and put into high positions were, in fact, on monitored performance at GE. But because they came from GE, they were seen as more valuable.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Great compensation and benefits. Very tough to get in the door, but once you're in, you can stay as long as you desire.

    Cons

    Erie is a dying small city. GE is leaving and the resulting impact is going to be felt for years to come. 80% of the headquarters staff is from was born in Erie, raised in Erie, and only knows Erie.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more diversity for a better perspective and new ideas.

    I have been working at Erie Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company takes care of their employees, good benefits, holiday bonus, pay is good at the home office compared to other jobs in the Erie area.

    Cons

    Because Erie Insurance is a large employer in the city they know that they can be an employer of choice and they string along contract workers for years without hiring them. I've seen contractors work here for 7 years or more without getting hired and then leave for somewhere else, and surprise surprise that contractor had a bunch of knowledge and information that is now lost and everyone scrambles to figure out what the hell to do when they leave. There are departments that are more than half contractors and when the contractors figure out they're not getting hired they leave in less than a year, then the new contractors find this out and leave too in an infinite loop of turnover.

    I would not recommend anyone ever take a contract position at this company. Let them suffer trying to find people to fill positions if they're going to try to use people like this. Temp work should be for jobs that are only needed for a short time or for projects that have a defined period of time, not for jobs that aren't going away and are critical to the business. It's stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bring on temps if you're going to make them perma-temps. People are not stupid and they'll leave en masse and you'll waste time and money training people over and over again, which you're doing right now but you obviously haven't caught on because your heads are stuck in the sand trying to save a few pennies.
