    I worked at MEEMIC as an intern

    Pros

    Corporate Incentive Program, Small company, lots of positions open. Company Insures teachers and those who serve the educational community ONLY, which is really amazing. Key focus here is member satisfaction. Lots of events here that goes on ESPECIALLY the MEEMIC grant program.

    Cons

    Hiring within was boasted when I was hired but is now nonexistent, so if you're looking for a position then you have a better chance coming in from somewhere else. But don't expect to move up.
    The customer service representatives are performing 3 different jobs on 27k to a max of 33k.
    Net promoter score is what the individual working and company is based off. The surveys the employees get are a joke that is extremely unfair as it does not reflect only yourself or how you can perform better, but it also includes 3 to 4 other people, which in turn, they could have made the claim worse off which is widely noticed.

    Advice to Management

    We have so many supervisors. One around every corner, but not enough leaders or mentors. Those that want to progress do show their ambitions but you drive them away. Mentor and encourage.

    I have been working at MEEMIC full-time

    Pros

    From my experience, the culture is very different than other insurance companies, such as Allstate or State Farm, where you make hundreds of cold calls a day with very low quote-to-sold ratio. Actually, Meemic's quote-to-sold is around 30-40%, with the nationwide monsters being under 10%. The (typically) lower prices coupled with the claims department and general goodwill of the company makes it a much easier product to sell. We receive very few - maybe even none- complaints about our claims department - which definitely is not the case with the major companies. The management team in Auburn Hills are all very, very nice people. Strong approval of the new CEO, Brad Raber, as well as the marketing team and Territory Sales Managers.

    Cons

    Commissions may be lower than they are with major companies, but as mentioned, you sell more quantity.

    Excellent company with no micro-management of employees. Employees have autonomy, respect, and opportunity for advancement.

    Technology is 1-2 years behind mainstream competitors, but is improving.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to recommend.

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

    Pros

    The pros of working at Meemic are the healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    There are no secrets at Meemic. The office drama and gossip is off the charts. Even Human Resources would tell managers stuff and then it would spread like wildfire.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to send all employees and managers to a business ethics class at least twice a year.

    Pros

    Helping clients and offering a unique product to other colleagues at an affordable price
    Claims department typically gives excellent service

    Cons

    No benefits
    Long hours
    Lots of overhead expenses
    Minimal profits
    Low commission
    Agents do all transactions
    Agents print all documents
    Difficult to get marketing assistance
    Underwriting can be very challenging

    Advice to Management

    The excecutives at Meemic are all about money. That is the bottom line. There are few very perks now to be a Meemic agent. They used to treat agents very well until a few years ago. We were offered lots of trips, but now trips and incentives are very limited. It was more like a family, but is now just a business and you just hope you have some profit for yourself at the end of the year after paying all expenses that are always increasing.

    Pros

    The people themselves that are orginal MEEMIC employees.

    Cons

    MEEMIC is owned by GMAC Insurance and as a result we have been gutted and lost our personality to our insureds and handling of losses.

    Advice to Management

    MEEMIC is a niche company tailoring to educators and there staffs. As a result they expect to be treated better then the average company. This is both in how situations or claims are handled as far as losses paid and and giving the benefit of doubt in gray areas. Claims are now handled with a metrix base without much deveation. There is also too much management overseeing too few employees. Management is concerning themselves only, and not looking at what has made MEEMIC Insurance a sucessful company. They have too many hired outside companies forming surveying and making decisions for Management. Marketing and prices are not up to par. Pricing of the product use to be fair and usually at a bargin rate, as result MEEMIC had loyal customers, even though they were known for there weighty underwritting requirements. As result, MEEMIC is not a profitable company and there agents are selling insurance to what use to be our customers to other carriers.
