    FCCI has experienced enormous success over the years. That success is due to the tremendous teammates we have had and continue to retain. FCCI’s age demographics are similar to others in the insurance industry where we are expecting our baby boomers to be retiring over the next 7-10 ...

    I worked at FCCI Insurance Group part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The culture at FCCI is unlike I have seen at any other company. It is one of kindness, dedication, and drive. Every teammate feels like a valued contributor to the company and other teammates want them to succeed.

    Cons

    The only con of the internship is that I was not utilized 100% of the time. This is no fault of the company, they could not start me on a project with only few days remaining in the internship.

    I have been working at FCCI Insurance Group full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The benefits are good at a reasonable rate

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism that starts at the CEO and works it's way down to lower level managers. If you are not one of the favorites then you will have a difficult time working at this company. I have been with this company many years and noticed the change in culture when the company got a new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at FCCI Insurance Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Benefits were very good, especially for the area.

    Cons

    There was a lot of back-stabbing when I was there. I was a manager. My manager regularly put down the other managers in our group to me. I was asked to run a group to review certain procedures. When our findings did not come in the way the management wanted, I was asked to modify them both by management and by outside consultants. Within a year of the review, all of us on my team (mostly managers) were let go, except...

    I have been working at FCCI Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    The company is absolutely wonderful. Time off is generous, benefits are good and employees are treated very well

    Cons

    Most departments share the same FCCI culture and the team mates are engaged and happy. However, this is not true for all departments. There is blatant favoritism, lack of training and resources that are detrimental to the staff

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the employees are telling you. Make more business decisions and use less personal preferences. Overall, the staff looks up to and respects our leadership. The staff needs to feel respected as well.

    I worked at FCCI Insurance Group for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Was a great place to work. Challenging (in a good way), great colleagues, flexible.

    Cons

    New CEO changed everything. He caused an agent revolt early in his tenure. Culture changed entirely - political, CYA, unreasonable. Profitability of business dropped drastically. 1 senior developer's condescending, infantile behavior completely unchecked by management. Made for a toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the the CEO and anyone he favors and start over.

    I worked at FCCI Insurance Group full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The people are pleasant for the most part. Cafe and gym available for employee use. Great involvement with giving back to the local community. Decent place to start your career.

    Cons

    Highly, highly political environment, and it's very obvious. If you're not buddy-buddy with your manager or other managers, you won't be going anywhere. I worked 50-60 hours a week regularly and still got nowhere after several years. No incentive to learn or grow in your area. You can show all the initiative you want, but you'll get false promises. Business systems are legacy and crap. Project managers are run ragged...

    Pros

    This company is run by the tried and true philosophy that is based upon signature customer service, hard work and investment in its most valuable resource, that being its human resource.

    Cons

    Haven't really noticed any that are of significance to point out - Wherever there is a workforce comprised of people in large groups you are bound to have one issue or another. With that being said, FCCI takes great pains to eliminate those problems that may negatively impact its team. members.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It is a privilege to be counted as a member of this team.
