      Old school (in a bad way)

      Pros

      Steady paycheck, benefits offered include matching 401(k)

      Cons

      Benefits package is a high-deductible HSA, which is pitiful for an insurance company. Company-wide, management and leadership are not open to listening to input, ideas, or contributions from their teams. Workforce is not diverse. There is a lack of psychological safety and a defensive, CYA culture. Technology is severely lagging in some divisions, which leads to workflow issues, poor turnaround time for customers, and opens the company up to potential cyber security issues. Unprofessional comments and attitudes from those in leadership positions, including sexist comments and use of racial slurs. After company-wide culture survey results were released, several people who raised concerns about the culture (anonymously) were let go.

      Pros

      Good company culture and management that is committed to helping you succeed.

      Cons

      Not many cons. At times, Underwriters take on more administrative tasks than the typical Underwriter in the industry. Benefits offering could be better.
