    I have been working at Gore Mutual full-time

    Pros

    Clear strategy. Respected company within the industry. Smaller than the bigger players which allows Gore Mutual to be nimble and meet the needs of brokers and customers. Gore Mutual cares. They are remaining a mutual company and are thoughtful and forward thinking in their approach to rolling policies to the mutual plan. They are committed to the broker channel and are not looking for ways to eliminate the broker and therefore are not focusing all their attention on building a direct channel (as some other carriers are). They are being creative in their distribution models, effectively looking for ways to better service their broker partners. They are being innovative in their product development. A great place to work!

    Cons

    They are currently looking for process efficiency. This change leads to a feeling of uncertainty at the underwriter level, however this will only make the company better in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage staff in changes. This is working.
