    I have been working at Insurity full-time

    Pros

    A lot of smart and hardworking people are working for Insurity. The company exists since 1980s and seems to be stable (at least, it was up to now). Usually coworkers are ready to answer your questions when you need it.

    Cons

    You are always busy, if you are working for Isurity. The priorities are changed frequently. Be ready to work overtime. And if you have to study something or to update your skills - it is a kind of problem to find some time for it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more predictable about priorities and expectations.

    I have been working at Insurity full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good base pay (in my case, not in everyone's), casual work environment. Direct team of coworkers is cohesive. They just installed a foosball table... (If that counts).

    Cons

    Pay for performance bonuses and raises... They don't even give annual cost of living raises. We all work hard at Insurity and accomplish much, but it seems that only specific groups actually get these bonuses/raises.

    Advice to Management

    Change the pay for performance policy and at the very least institute cost of living raises annually. The money I make today is not the same next year or the year after or even 3-5 years from now. Something needs to change or more people are going to leave.

    I have been working at Insurity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free parking in Hartford, friendly low-key atmosphere, no micro-managing, work at your own pace, remote working opportunities, will pay spot bonuses for extra work, good holiday/PTO benefits

    Cons

    Doesn't value education/experience, pay is 10-15% lower than average in the Hartford area, horribly low bonus scale (1.5% last year), no cost of living raise after 1 year, frequently expected to work after hours or weekends, need to do extra work outside of your area to get noticed

    Advice to Management

    Make promotion/advancement goals more clear, poor definition of job descriptions and responsibilities
