    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Michigan Millers Mutual Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Management has realized that happy employees are productive employees and is making an effort to make the workplace better than it has been in the past. It's a more laid-back environment and, depending on the department, there is a lot of freedom. They did a lot of downsizing over the past year, but truthfully, many of them were dead weight and the company is better for it.

    Cons

    Not every manager subscribes to the theory about happy employees and still rules their department with an iron fist.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have experience in the insurance industry.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Michigan Millers Mutual Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open and liberal work hours

    Cons

    Lack managerial skills. Military tactics to "brow beat" employees to do additional work. Constant threat of laying off employees. Management bullied the agency force as well for additional business.

    Advice to Management

    Do us all a favor and quit or retire.

    Pros

    There is only a handful of good people there. Almost all of the competent ones have either been laid off or have jumped ship. Hopefully, you will encounter one or two of the few good ones that are left.

    Cons

    Working there has to be considered a sort term proposition, as the company has had combined loss ratios over 100% for the last four years. Layoffs have demoralized the remaining employees. Many have been reprimanded and written up recently, which is the harbinger of further layoffs and defections. Upper management is held in low regard, as it has done nothing to stem the loss of business or the high loss ratios.

    Advice to Management

    You are held in very low regard by what is left of your staff. Nor do they agents respect you, as you cannot be counted on to keep your word. You give every appearance of shrinking the company to a size that is no longer sustainable.

    Pros

    Free parking and $1 bottles of pop from the vending machine

    Cons

    Middle management employs the 'management by fear and intimidation' tactic when dealing with employees. Bullying and verbal abuse is not uncommon, nor is public ridicule. Management is very unprofessional and blatant favoritism is rampant. They are driving good employees out in the hopes of hiring people with less experience for lower wages.
