        Pros

        Will treat you like gold....at first...

        Cons

        Reality sets in after about a year, when you learn how many vindictive females are actually in control of top management.

        Advice to Management

        Top management needs to be more like GAI Cincinnati, and "grow a pair"...

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

        Pros

        Good learning opportunities. Great American University has many course offerings to help learn professionally and grow personally. They offer good benefits that include 401K match, health management intensives and financial education support.

        Cons

        Company treats employees outside of the Cincinnati home office as second class citizens. Advancement in the organization is limited outside of Cincinnati.

        Advice to Management

        Your most important asset is your people.

      • Good, but with room to improve.

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

        Pros

        General work-life balance. Not a high-pressure atmosphere.

        Cons

        Salaries are lower than competitors. Paths to promotion are not clearly defined.

        Advice to Management

        Need to be more proactive on keeping salaries competitive. Also need to help employees take ownership of their careers by providing more training opportunities and by laying out ways they can advance.

        Negative Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

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

        Pros

        The company pays well usually and has been in business for over 100 years.

        Cons

        The company looks for ways to manage by reports and leaves relationships of staff and customers out of the equation. Senior management undermines the authority of lower level management and creates animosity among the staff. When there is a problem with a customer, they choose to be rigid until the customer threatens to leave (which they end up doing anyway).

        Advice to Management

        Pay attention to business outside of your comfort region and trust the input of your staff and customers. Quit managing by report and take some time to get to know people you work with and do business with. Remember, the customer is the reason you even have a job.

        I have been working at Great American Insurance Group full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Depends on which company you work for as there are about 30 subsidiaries under Great American. Good place to work but a lot depends on your manager and the specific subsidiary. Company does contribute some money each month for HSA plan. 401k match is 4.5% for your 6%. About 8-9 holidays per year, 24 PTO days per year and you can have equivalent of 36 PTO days banked until you stop earning PTO hours.

        Cons

        $2,500 family deductible for health insurance is too high. Prescription coverage is weak.

        Advice to Management

        Improve the health benefits, it’s the biggest complaint among employees as well as the biggest complaint on annual employee survey.
