      Pros

      Almost none. Nice company vehicle, direct manager tried his best.

      Cons

      This is one of the worst employers I have ever had the pleasure of working for. In the claims department they regularly told us there was a problem with staffing. They frequently said “we know you guys are overwhelmed but...” This company would give every adjuster a completely unsustainable workload and then blame the adjuster when things went wrong. For example I had on average (I kept a log) of 25 emails and 20 phone calls a day coming in. My work would get put back weeks and customers would be furious. Management knew all this and still frequently blamed me as the problem. I joined this company with 10 other new hires, 9 of them are no longer with the company. Several fellow adjusters got treated for mental health issues while here, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance. Upper management sees no issue with the staffing they have and would rather put bandaids on things then just hire more staff. They are cheap, unfair, and cold toward their employees. They would tell employees “work at your own pace as long as your stuff gets done.” The kicker is your stuff will never be caught up or done. You will struggle, you will drown, they will blame you for it.
