    I worked at ProAssurance (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and a good corporate atmosphere make this a good company to work for. They strive to treat customers and employees fairly.

    Cons

    Your best bet to work well with this company is to work in corporate in Birmingham. Remote offices tend to get a little less attention and the treated fairly motto sometimes misses the mark.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better handle on career advancement in ALL departments. Bets way to lose good talent is to not have a career path for them.

    I have been working at ProAssurance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work - life balance was great! Benefits were awesome!

    Cons

    Office culture, to many favorites, some employees took advantage of PTO. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Office culture and leadership needs to be addressed, to much drama, employees and management took advantage of lunch hours.

    I have been working at ProAssurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management of the company treats its employees well. The benefits were good and salary competitive.

    Cons

    If you are working outside of the home office, it can be challenging to keep up with the ongoing changes. They have their formula for managing the insureds and do not deviate from that plan.

    Advice to Management

    Establish more ways for employees to contribute feedback for growth of organization. The company is very profitable but needs to find ways to grow organically, not just through acquisitions.

    I have been working at ProAssurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, and hours.
    Annual bonuses
    Lenient on taking time off
    Mostly great co-workers
    Nice office

    Cons

    Management is very non confrontational. If there is a problem with another employee, then EVERYONE in the department (or office) is called into a meeting and addressed. So the person who is creating the problem in the first place, doesn't get that it's about them. That's like punishing all of your children for something only one did. Also, most are not very tech savvy...kind of old school, so they are not able to teach you because they do not know themselves. Most management do not even come out of their offices. You will go by weeks without seeing them unless you have to go into their office for something. They need to come out and walk around daily to check out what's going on in their department.

    Advice to Management

    Take the bull by the horns!

    I have been working at ProAssurance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is one of success and teamwork. Since we work with professional individuals as clients (physicians, dentists, podiatrists, and attorneys), we are encourages to ensure they are treated fairly. Salaries are extremely competitive with generous benefits. Management is connected to the overall sentiment of the employees and seek to know how improvements can be made.

    Cons

    Training beyond industry needs is nonexistent. When I started, I came from the insurance industry but from a different genre than what ProAssurance offers. I asked if any designations/additional training is necessary. I was told that I did not need this type of training because I would be trained on the job. Unfortunately, I struggled during my second and third years as I had reached the extent of my knowledge. The only training I received was negative reviews coupled with constant reminders that needed to do better but no information on how to do it..

    Fast forward several years after doing it my way, and being promoted, I read manuals for industry training. The information in these manuals was EXACTLY what I needed back then! That was a lesson for me. I must be persistent when I know I can benefit from a specific training.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount of educational benefit.
