    I have been working at MEMIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a new employee, I couldn't be happier with my choice in accepting MEMIC’s offer. From day one at the orientation through my training, I have felt incredibly welcomed by everyone. From top to bottom. Also, as someone who is new to this industry, the training has been second to none. I am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow with this ever-evolving company.

    Cons

    No cons as of now.

    I have been working at MEMIC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Not far from the Ocean.

    Cons

    Top heavy - kinda like a big fraternity or sorority. Not great benefits. Check out Indeed dot com for real reviews. Sadly this company feels the need to reply to anything negative as though people aren't allowed to express their real experiences without empty feedback.

    Advice to Management

    You're not all that.

    Pros

    Can be flexible on hours, nice building and people

    Salaries are very low for industry, employees are not valued. Very little room for advancement. Insurance, especially health insurance is horrible.

    I worked at MEMIC full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Old Port location was fun.

    Cons

    “Favorites” were promoted despite comple lack of qualifications. Almost entire IT staff has left in the last year.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t promote people just because they’ve been there a long time...

    I have been working at MEMIC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have been here for over a year. There's a great small company feel for a growing company. I came from a very small company and was impressed that during my first week here, anytime I saw the president/CEO he would greet me by name and ask how my first few days were going. There's always something fun going on whether it's for the whole company or department/team wide. We've had ice cream socials, breakfasts, bowling...

    Cons

    some older computer programs (but in the process of changing that)

    I have been working at MEMIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been here for a year and I can see things changing. It seems like MEMIC is renewing its energy, getting people more involved and shaking off the crust. Open-door leadership from our new president, Mike Bourque, and a good sense of where we're going, has been really fun to see and I expect we'll see even more.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind. I mean, who doesn't like ice cream socials and a chance to make a difference?

    Advice to Management

    Keep measuring outcomes and people will keep responding. There's a lot of talent at MEMIC that wants the company to succeed. Keep trusting your instincts.

    I worked at MEMIC full-time

    Pros

    Pay Check, personal feeling you have a positive impact.

    Cons

    All it takes is one bad egg to ruin the office team spirit and are so out for their own gain they lie about fellow employees to the extent they are “let go”

    Advice to Management

    Don’t believe all you hear! You lose good staff that way and keep the psychos!

    I worked at MEMIC full-time

    Pros

    Some of the staff were ok

    Cons

    Memic has a tendency to placate employees. Current management are highly inexperienced and it’s still an ole boys and girls club

    Advice to Management

    Memic needs to work harder and cease providing irrelevant responses. You are not what you seem. Management has a poor management style.
