    I have been working at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Felt the need to post a positive review since so many former employees writing negative reviews. Prosight is a great place to work and learn. I understand that it is not for everyone. I worked at a large carrier for many years and although I had a positive experience I wanted a chance to make an impact as opposed to being just another number. I wanted a chance to be able to make decisions and not just follow process...

    Cons

    You can’t hide here like you can at other companies. You are held accountable for your work. It is a growing company and sometimes we don’t always have the resources of the big dogs but we have committed people in place willing to help.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your employees informed about the direction of the company.

    "Stay Away"

      Former Employee - Legal 

      I worked at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time

      Pros

      High Salaries (they have to get you in somehow, but not worth your sanity)

      Cons

      Everything about this place is a disgrace. The company is slowly crumbling as people realize how crazy this place truly is. Everyone mentioning the kool-aid mentality is 100% right - and if you dont fall into it, HR plots a way to force you out of the company, claiming you werent a "fit". There is zero management experience - they promote based on whether they like you or not, doesnt matter what background or years of...

      I have been working at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Having been at mostly large companies I've found ProSight to be an incredible surprise in my career: if you work hard you get rewarded; all of the benefits of a small company with few, if any, drawbacks. Management is happy to give you a chance to perform at which point it's on you to deliver - and if you have worked hard and delivered previously in your career, you should know this place will recognize, reward and...

      Cons

      If you're not ready for this type of job, it's going to be tough - you can't hide or push work to other divisions / teams. You are given significant responsibility and commensurate support, but again, some people just might not be ready to take on a role at a small company where you have to deliver. And, if you don't deliver there's a good chance you will be cut after 1-2 years. There are no feel-good trophies; this...

      Advice to Management

      Be more selective about who you hire - the interview process is fairly standard, but I think more focus should be on who will fit at the company and thrive in the results-oriented culture.

      I have been working at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      I have been at ProSight since the early days. I love this company because I like to learn, I like to ask questions, I like to work hard and be rewarded for hard work. Not in a “fluffy way”, or in the way all companies say we work hard, play hard – but really, actually put in time and effort. Successful ProSight’ers like to be challenged and are proud of what we have built and the culture we protect every day. Letting...

        I worked at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The speed and abundance of work will make days fly at ProSight, you’ll look up and it will be 4 o’clock on Friday before you know it. Those with a strong work ethic who don’t mind wearing multiple hats will have no issue fitting in here. - Uncapped PTO - Excellent recognition program - Lots of internal promotions - Frequent office events (e.g. happy hour)

        Cons

        The speed of work and tight deadlines can lead to the advancement of projects/initiatives before they are fully vetted/reviewed.

        Pros

        Work from home capability (that’s it)

        Cons

        Everything thing from the broker relationships (PBC is the worst company to do business with) to their blind trust in what the broker dictates. 1/3 of the company is knowledgeable in the insurance agency but the other 2/3 of the company is guessing and hoping something sticks. Their construction and home builders program is an absolute joke. I have nothing good about my experience there and if you go to work...

        I worked at ProSight Specialty Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Some really good people in claims department and beyond, but they get overlooked by management's "flavor of the month" in many cases. I did get to work with some very talented individuals for a while there.

        Cons

        Extreme favoritism, program reviews are just an awful experience for all involved. I attended one in the past. Program Manager really had her stuff together, but was crucified by top three over one little component of program performance. Nothing positive about 99% of things going right. That's the way it goes there.

        Advice to Management

        Stop having HR write reviews on Glassdoor. The last two were very obviously written by or on the behest of HR. I had a friend in that department at one time, I was told this is the practice to "balance out" all the real and truthful horrific reviews. Read some of the language about protecting culture...that's HR all the way. Stop it, we all know.

        Pros

        This is a niche and up-and-coming industry so it can be interesting work and exposure to a more refreshing side of insurance.

        Cons

        Terrible culture. Nepotism at its finest. Expect screaming matches and personal attacks on conference calls (particularly on the Digital team). HR is non-existent and does what's best for favored employees, not those in the right. I fully expect a boilerplate response from HR on this post. Again, it is another indication of sweeping under the rug the true problems within this organization. These issues all go unaddressed....

        Thank you for the glowing review and for complimenting the culture and work environment (we agree!). We’ve had Climbers leave for personal reasons in the past only to return afterward, so if you find yourself in a position to rejoin ProSight don’t hesitate to re-apply.
