    Pros

    The people!! There is a high level of commitment to individual and company success that shows in the decisions made and actions taken.

    Cons

    Knowing that there may be times when a plan holder will be disappointed because we don't cover "everything". Many plan holders have not read the plan and do not know what items are covered, so become frustrated when something they felt should be covered is clearly listed as a not covered item.

    Advice to Management

    Share more information. When everyone knows the goals and challenges, they can become involved in solutions and strategies.

    I have been working at Old Republic (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very easy to work with, don't have problems with management and they are very caring about their employees

    Cons

    Still a little behind in times for automation but being worked on. New processes are coming around to be more automated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with informing employees regarding things going on. Sometimes left in dark about things going on in the market place that may end up affecting our business as well

    I have been working at Old Republic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable company with great co-workers. Comprehensive benefits. Management sincerely cares about their employees and works to make it a great place to work

    Cons

    I wish I could work from home. I don't find myself as productive in the office. But I can understand the reasoning, given it is such a large company

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for us to work from home at least 2 days per week and track our productivity.

    I worked at Old Republic full-time

    Pros

    I worked with and then for ORTC over a period of ten years. I found them to be ethical and fair to both work with and for.

    Cons

    I felt their needed to be more team building and shared company culture through out all of the departments. I think things would flow better creating a company culture as opposed to a department culture.

    Advice to Management

    As stated in the cons; I would recommend creating a company vibe and culture to stay both relevant in the industry and the structure of the company.

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

    Pros

    Great location and in a landmark building on Michigan Ave. Company is small enough (at least the Chicago office - this does not apply to OR Title) for some to be noticed and move up the ranks, if qualified. Overall, a fair, ethical company that strives to make good decisions for shareholders. Good fit for employees just starting out and looking for entry level positions.

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive and bonuses are small. Culture is very conservative - the status quo is upheld. Don't expect many "perks" that other companies will provide, such as gym memberships, parking reimbursements, daycare, etc. The company is run very lean, which is a pro and a con. Company has been through a rough patch due to industry troubles - not completely its own fault.


  10. "Authorization"

    I have been working at Old Republic full-time

    Pros

    They show appreciation to their employees

    Cons

    The downside is that when you work in Authorzations it seems like your not worth anything to the company you get treated like a child

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the pay to reflect the work, making less than 20 is crazy
