    I have been working at Homesite Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a lot I like about my position at Homesite. The management is friendly, the job is interesting, and they're very understanding when it comes to learning a new process. They let you listen to music while you work and snack at your desk, the things you learn is varied, and for the ambitious there are even opportunities to get an insurance licence that the company pays for!

    Cons

    There are some people who are pretty jaded about everything there. I hear people complain a lot about the management or the job itself, and sometimes that can be a little disheartening. I haven't seen the issues they complain about though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I'm excited to see where this all goes!

    I worked at Homesite Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Culturally diverse.
    -Some managers and supervisors are excellent.
    -Very accommodating to parents and those with heavy responsibilities outside the office. This is likely the largest factor for retaining a multitude of people.
    -A casual atmosphere. This is both a pro and a con.
    -High access to the C-level executives, who are very sharp and capable.

    Cons

    -Some teams are just plain lazy...and their managers/supervisors permit it.
    -Little-to-no investment in developing talent.
    -While culturally diverse (a pro), one's ethnicity can substantially impact the way one is treated, both positively and negatively.
    -Many abuse the leniency with regards to hours in the office. 9-5 becomes 9-4, then 9:30-4, then a 1-hour lunch becomes 1.5, and so on.
    -Incompetence is tolerated. Showing up late is tolerated. Missing meetings is tolerated. I can't recall ever seeing someone fired or even reprimanded for lackluster performance.
    -Politics should stay out of the workplace. Unfortunately even some of the most senior people in the organization don't respect this.
    -There is little promoting from within. This is either a leading cause or the result of ambitious employees tending to depart the organization early.

    Advice to Management

    -Every organization talks about the importance of developing talent. Stop talking about it and take action.
    -Hold employees (from the lowest of low to senior management) to a higher standard.
    -Be more vigilant about hours worked.
    -Have some of the top-performing managers coach others.

    I worked at Homesite Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nimble to respond to changing needs of business partners
    Great central Boston location
    Growing so plenty of opportunities
    Interesting technology challenges

    Cons

    Perhaps too ready to be nimble. It would be good to see some ideas through to completion before shuffling people around again and again.

    Advice to Management

    When I was there, there were only casual conversations regarding personal development and growing individuals into more senior roles. A little structure here would go a long way.

    Pros

    Right now this is a fast growing company with lots of opportunity to advance. The pay is great and the company treats its people well.

    Cons

    This is a younger insurance organization in the grand scheme of things, which some people might consider a con. No complaints here though.

    Excellent benefits
    Great opportunities for self development using Homesite University
    Good work life balance
    Good bonus potential
    Flexibility to try new things

    Cons

    Top down communication could be improved.
    Culture can sometimes feel "clique-ish"
    Some processes could be more consistent across locations
    A consistent look and feel to all locations would be nice.
