    Pros

    Provides great product for a niche market. Stable company with great benefits. Company is good at giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Traveling on weekends so it's difficult to have a work/life balance. The pay does not make up for working on the weekends.

    "Not All Employees are "Treated Fairly""

    I worked at ProAssurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Financially solid company; generally good, competent co-workers.

    Cons

    Does not live up to its Treated Fairly promise with all employees. Certain departments are headed by micro-managers who sorely and offensively lack management skills and respect for their employees. Leadership tells employees that, if they give their all, they will be rewarded, which might be true for many, if not most, departments. Unfortunately, the decency and fairness they claim does not exist in all departments. As a result some folks tragically fall through the cracks with no one in HR to lend a hand. But I think they are trying to address those shortcomings.

    Advice to Management

    If you are not going to treat all employees fairly, please revisit your branding.

    I have been working at ProAssurance full-time

    Pros

    The company benefits package is great. The support staff are willing to work to make all things happen. There seems to be a lot of potential career advancement if you want to stay. The company is willing to provide certification training for employees.

    Cons

    There are political battlefields at every turn between departments. There is a shrinking and aging intellectual knowledge base at the company that cannot support future initiatives without the implementation of a strong (and forced) mentor program.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the silo-styled infighting. Start investing in the next generation of management and support staff that will lead the company into future success. Also, provide opportunities for remotely working from home. Virtual teams are part of the future success of attracting new talent that will stay.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and supervisors, generous bonuses, relatively generous salary, nice office space.

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth is minimal. Unless you have a law degree of some type, seems your doomed to be stuck in the same space. Upper Management is under the impression that the employees would prefer bonuses over an actual raise; uses surveys as a cover. Claims that they are facilitating top down communication. The surveys most likely go in the trash, because their has not been any relevant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more; you are a multi million dollar corporation, whose employees work extremely hard. There are many who would prefer to see an permanent increase to their paycheck, than a tactically released raise; we're smart, we realize you can tax that at 50%, versus what is allowable on a paycheck.

    "Just Ok"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Company benefits, 37.5 hour work weeks

    Cons

    micro managing, insufficient training at initial hiring then countless training sessions after you have been thrown out there to figure things out on your own. treated like children, no incentive to do well

    Advice to Management

    if you are going to preach about treating people "fairly", learn to treat your workers "fairly"

    Pros

    The company had great benefits especially for a smaller-sized company....Great time off as well as 401(k) and insurance.

    Cons

    I do feel that there are extreme communication issues from top to bottom that could be prevented. Most people were only promoted because of "lip-service".
