    Pros

    Plymouth Rock has great benefits and provides plenty of opportunity for growth. I started working here after I graduated, and after 6 months I was allowed to apply for a promotion. I have moved up several times within my department, and I appreciate that for some positions, they will only interview internal candidates rather than hiring someone from the outside.

    Cons

    It is difficult to manage the costs of living and commuting in Boston

    Pros

    The executive team here are genuinely good people and are not beholden to a Wall St board to impact decisions

    Cons

    Typical of the insurance industry things move slowly, especially with regard to technology. Nit is challenging to innovate technologically even though the company values innovation.

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement including department transfers, good benefits with an exceptional HR team, smart and engaged management focused on results and teamwork.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could improve; typically multiple hats are worn in production or service positions, sothose that aren't good multitaskers might struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to encourage more interdepartmental communication and collaboration.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Plymouth Rock Assurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I recently left this company, because I moved out of state, but I had a positive experience during the time I worked there. The management structure is relatively flat, which I appreciated. My Manager and the Director of the dept were always available to talk, and had no problem assisting with issues that needed to be escalated.

    Cons

    Due to tough winters the past few years claims and call volumes have increased, which has been difficult to manage

    Pros

    The company rewards its employees by providing fun opportunities for them to take a break from work and interact with employees in other departments. They will surprise us with company lunches or ice cream sundaes, and there is also a summer outing every year. It's great to have the opportunity to get to know your co-workers outside of the office.

    Cons

    Great tuition reimbursement benefit, but it's a challenge to find time balance a course schedule with a full-time job. Maybe, they could offer a part-time schedule for those who want to go back to school.
