    Pros

    As a member of the dysfunctional group noted in an earlier post, I concur with some of the comments. Our new CEO Edward Yorty joined the company in 2011 and has implemented and executed a strong performance culture. This company has made a huge transformation in the last five years. Strong financial performance, strong premium growth, new markets new marketing channels and a new accountability culture that is difficult for some. Results have been very positive leading to the company being named to the Wards Top 50 in 2016 - now ranked in the top 2% of all P&C companies on overall performance.

    Cons

    Don't come here if you don't plan to give it your all. This is an exciting place to be but not without pressure and stress for achievement. Creative and transformative stresses can run high at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Execute the vision.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    New CEO seems to be on the right track. Very family friendly if you have no ambition, and are just wanting to coast through your career. Difficult to screw up enough to get fired.

    Cons

    Being in a small town must make them out of touch with how things work at other companies around the US.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ole boys club that seems to be your senior leadership team. A house cleaning is in order. New CEO has a chance to fix things, but not until the top is fixed.

    Pros

    Really good benefits package.
    Flex time is great - very helpful for working parents.
    Excellent co-workers.
    Clean, pleasant work environment.
    There are some very good officers and supervisors there - the new head of HR is great.

    Cons

    Not all the supervisors are open to change and updating.
    Some of the rules, such as those about attire, for example, are outdated, and overly nit-picky, especially with some supervisors - not consistent.
    Don't always sense that management cares about the employees as much as they could or should.
    Board of Directors seem to be locked in a 1950's mindset.

    Advice to Management

    I wish it was mandatory for all officers and supervisors to read the book "The Peter Principle". One of the main points of the book is that in all organizations, people tend to rise through the ranks until they reach their level of incompetence. When that occurs, instead of stepping back a level, they remain in that position, where they "major in minors", and focus too much time on small issues, and do nothing about the large issues that really matter.
    Also - use the technology we have to the fullest. For example, when the winter weather is extreme, and no one should be driving, don't open the office. Also the phone system to be adjusted to announce to callers that we're closed, due to the extreme weather, and let people do their work from home, where they're safe.
    Another thing - get some feedback from the people who will be directly affected by changes to their jobs. Prime example is the phone system that no one really likes, particularly the receptionists who have to answer the phone all day
