      InfoSec- NJM is an excellent company to work for!

      Pros

      Excellent leadership Extreme high contribution of health insurance from NJM - low cost to the employee! Dental, 401k. Executive management is transparent and they do listen to their employees. Excellent life/work balance Great culture Free soup; nicely subsidized lunch - low cost to employee Paid training

      Cons

      NONE - I would go back to NJM in a heart beat! I very much miss this place already. All these negative reviews I completely disagree with. People really need to be patient in understanding how the Business Units work together. People in these reviews don’t realize what they have until they lose it. The CEO, executive VP, the CFO - I have talked face to face with them, and they are by far very humble and intelligent people. They respect you and see the value you provide to NJM.

      Pros

      Benefits, in the last 2 years they are dwindling away at what they cover, so the healthcare options now are not as great as they were a few years ago. Free soup daily. 401k Coworkers are really nice and supportive, if you can find time to actually talk to them between calls.

      Cons

      Personal lines dept is micromanaged to death. they bring you in with the promise of growth and the salaries but there's no growth here. It's internal but there's a lot of neoptism that goes on there. Supervisor says one thing and another supervisor says something else, you don't know what is the best way to conduct yourself during calls. If you have a mental illness, be sure to be protected under ADA/FMLA because they do not care about you or your illness, you're one breakdown away from losing your job. You're in a "team" but most of the time it feels lonely and like you're ostracized from the group. Save yourself and run away from this place.

      Pros

      Free soup, free oatmeal and free coffee

      Cons

      NJM does not reward longevity, typical old boys network, have to know someone or have a "sponsor" in order to move up.

      Free Soup, Free Milk, Free Oatmeal, Pay is decent

      Cons

      Hard to take time off, no flexibility what so ever, micro-managed down to the second, very stressful environment, management do not know how to properly manage. If you have kids, NJM is not the place for you.

      A nightmare

      Pros

      Free soup, health benefits

      Cons

      In the past year, 5 people were fired after they went to HR to advise that they felt harassed by their supervisor. A company that claims there is no retaliation after speaking up for yourself fires you within a month of going to HR. The harassment claims were relevant because their management will scream at you for a mistake or put you on a warning. A micromanaging army style work environment with people sitting in a hostile work environment on top of one another. It used to be a great place to work but after 10 years I felt like I was going to jail every day. It’s a man happy place and treat women like a prop with no voice.

      Pros

      Free soup, milk, ice tea, coffee,crackers and oatmeal. It used to be a great place to work and they took care of their employees and the employees would speak highly of the company. Those days are gone. They give the appearance of caring but that is all smoke and mirrors.

      Cons

      If you want to work your butt off and be scrutinized and told only about errors you made this is the place for you. If you only want negative feedback as a motivator come and work here. Mind you, the errors found have no affect on the outcome of the claim or service given and you can try your best but get used to being told “You’re doing ok but .....” If you are a conscientious hard worker who prides themselves on being thorough and efficient it will not be good enough. Your emails will be read. Your phone calls will be listened too and every detail of your work can and will be looked at and reviewed. They adhere to micromanagement like it is the best thing since sliced bread. All your excellent work will be viewed as Expected and any error no matter how minor will be brought to your attention personally or in a meeting. Meetings to discuss inconsequential mistakes are routine . Written warnings are given out like candy at Halloween. They fire good workers saying they aren’t productive enough. They repeatedly advise employees they are “at will” and can fire you for no reason. If you ever go back at them in any way they will target you. If you are young and pretty you’ll do ok but that’s a whole other story.

      Pros

      Free soup and coffee. All the incentives to stay were removed. No more pension.

      Cons

      Micromanaging, bullying, constant monitoring. They have implementing redundant procedures that do not work and then blame the people who can't get it done. They are understaffed because when people leave they are hardly replaced and the people.

      Pros

      Generous Pension, outstanding benefits, free soup. Some nice co-workers. Beautiful campus. The number of vacation days/sick days are good. Option to work from home for certain employees in certain departments.

      Cons

      This is a company with certain managers rule by fear. If you pay attention, You will notice people walk around with fear in their eyes. Being watched closely by management can make you feel like a prisoner sometimes. NJM advertises that they do not lay off people. However, I have witnessed three good people being harassed to the point of resigning. The only thing I regret is Not to have left sooner.
