    I worked at Midwest Employers Casualty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment and remote employees

    Cons

    Decisions made behind closed doors and if you aren't a white man who talks sports forget it

    Advice to Management

    Diversify. Pay more than lip service to attracting millennial and other non country club golfers

    I worked at Midwest Employers Casualty full-time

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work long hours, challenge myself, and be a part of a company that I felt, at the time, was positive.

    Cons

    There was a massive effort to fire me for being disabled and too old (female, age 48) under a cloak accusation of "disloyalty" after I told an internal auditor (also working for parent company) of problems in department that others were too scared to bring up.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put Melodee Saunders in charge of projects involving Claims. She does not understand the claim process and made many mistakes that cost the company millions of dollars.

    I worked at Midwest Employers Casualty full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company genuinely cares about employees and want to see individuals succeed. They seek self-motivated, people that have integrity, have the desire to work hard and contribute to the company in a positive way. Negative behavior is not tolerated, and an employee's attitude is evaluated as part of their overall performance. Midwest goes above and beyond to make working there a fun environment for all. They even dedicate a whole week to show appreciation for their employees. If you are satisfied with just collecting a paycheck and thrive off of negativity, then this is not the environment for you.

    Cons

    Since Midwest is a fairly small niche company, all departments do not have many options for upward advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage with your staff and provide support to their individual needs for personal development.

    Pros

    The company has some good technology to use, and provides the best benefit in the world, an employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Poor "here they come, watch them go away"management.

    Advice to Management

    Have some stability among your VPs and their reports. Timothy J. Galvin was not there when I worked at MECC, so I have no opinion of him.

    Pros

    Employees were a great bunch. Those remaining have been there a really long time and therefore there is almost a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    IT Management's primary concern and focus is on the bottom line.
    Looking below them to those they supervise it means salaries, command and control. Looking above it means protecting themselves.
    It is not on people. It is not on career development.
    They cannot do innovation, they cannot do change, they cannot do transformation.
    These disciplines and ideas require risk and imagination not entrenchment and status quo.
    IT Management is devoid of the qualities necessary to today's IT.
    They lip service change and transformation. Be very wary. Ask about IT history.

    Advice to Management

    Has IT moved forward of backward in the last 5 years?
    Is IT a help or a hindrance to the business?
    How prevalent is the shadow IT of the Actuary and Claims department? There is a reason why the business is NOT a partner with IT. IT has become a drag on the speed of business.
