    I have been working at Kinsale Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    A good entry level into claims

    Cons

    The claims department is lacking in inclusiveness of all employees and displays favoritism. They only support certain people as long as they are in the clique.; everyone else is treated like secondary staff and left to figure things out for themself. If one of the Assistant managers doesn’t like you they give you a hard time and nit pick you and go as far as to lurk over your desk and bully you. They run and tattle to upper management over minor infractions to throw certain people under the bus. They will set people up to fail

    I worked at Kinsale Insurance Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the hardest working CEOs around, with the highest standards and ethics. Very transparent organization with goals clearly stated and values demonstrated from the top. Total compensation was very well-structured beyond just salary to include 401k matching contributions, generous health insurance contributions, and the ability to earn meaningful bonuses. Straightforward work enviornment with any issues dealt with immediately and appropriately. Very fair, very professional and very ethical.

    Cons

    Not a workplace environment that is warm and fuzzy - if you are looking for lots of employee activities and bonding, this workplace is not the vehicle.
