    Pros

    Good pay and hours are corporate. Substantial autonomy over case load of 32 cases for each attorney.

    Cons

    Erratic management. Favoritism is definitely the norm and raises are 2% every other year. Bonuses are non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself.

    Pros

    Salary is decent. Work itself is a nice challenge.

    Cons

    - Claim overload
    - New management in Jax is terrible

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. An atmosphere of constant threat of job loss is not productive.

    Pros

    Corporate experience, large company, SEC experience, SOX experience. Campus was large. Stock options were good.

    Cons

    Too corporate. Management is after cutting costs at the expense of the employee in order to get bonuses for themselves. Very toxic work environment. Poor culture.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how you fix a toxic environment but i would start valuing the employee more. Don't openly duscuss getting bonuses for cutting costs at the employees expense.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to cultivate and develop your employees to create future leaders who are passionate about the company and industry or you will find yourselves with a dwindling talent pool.

    Pros

    The paycheck didn't bounce and the benefits were good. If you enjoy trial by fire for learning how to do your job and clueless, callous management, the Omaha Claims Center is the place for you!

    Cons

    We are the claims counsel
    of the Omaha Claims Center
    Huddled together
    Offices filled with neglected banker's boxes. Alas!
    Our denial letters, when
    Churned in droves together
    Are confusing and poorly worded
    As management directives
    Or hungover law school grads' through halls
    In our claims center

    Managers without experience, employees without training,
    Frozen in our offices when the monthly layoffs come;

    Those who have left
    with better connections, to better jobs
    Remember us—if at all—not as lost
    Frightened souls, but only
    As the claims counsel,
    of the Omaha Claims Center

    Advice to Management

    Find jobs with the growing title underwriters before you are all laid off as well.

    Pros

    Contractors are paid well.... probably to make up for the working environment.

    Cons

    The Wires team has been consistently the worst-performing Agile team in the company. Instead of tackling the underlying issues, the team's technical management likes to blame individuals. He fails to understand basic concepts in Agile. Leadership doesn't mean forcing your will upon others and intimidating those who disagree. True leaders lift their team members, not disparage and insult them in front of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Train your team's management

    Pros

    Bureaucracy kept to a minimum. Free coffee, plus all the standard benefits. Minimum micro-management. Each unit has lots of independence as a unit.

    Cons

    Stingy company - two raises in ten years of service. Lack of generosity and care for employees. Downsized after ten years with no severance pay, just standard unemployment. My particular boss did not have a good sense of work-life balance in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up, give back to the employees. Be generous and caring. Make provisions for work-life balance. Show leadership by more communication from the top.

    Pros

    Can't think of any. In the past is was a great company to work for. Hours were decent

    Cons

    Poor management, favortisim, layoffs, hours, work load, no work/life balance. Staff is treated like outsiders. Management has no knowledge or skills in the industry. If you aren't in the click, you're out

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the management staff you have in there and turn that company into what it used to be

    I have been working at Fidelity National Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    A lot of old systems, lack of collaboration and it seems at least some management resistant to change. Women, at least by a couple of IT managers, were thought of as inferior - and one wasted 5 working days to come to the exact same conclusion I had. Another female's role was scaled back, even though she was more competent than the "replacement."

    Advice to Management

    Don't be resistant to change or stubborn. Some people have innovative ideas that could save the company millions of dollars. Also, be sure you are treating women fairly.
