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

    Pros

    RCIS is a small company and sometimes still feels a bit like a mom-and-pop shop. There's not a lot of turnover, so there's lots of institutional knowledge and subject matter experts. The Crop Insurance Industry changes rapidly due to Farm Bill and RMA mandates, the rate of change is significantly higher than banking or standard insurance industries.

    Cons

    With limited turnover in staffing, the tendency to continue to do things the 'old way' is strong and new ideas and methods are a bit challenging to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Balancing innovation and new methods with retaining the knowledge and understanding of WHY the old way worked is a real challenge. Embrace training for new managers, just because they are an expert in some area does not necessarily make them a good resource manager.

    I worked at RCIS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits through Wells Fargo. The company performs for its customers fairly well and looks after the well being of employees.

    Cons

    Leadership does not always communicate well. They are slow to move with new products. Over concerned with loss ratios in a single year versus 10-15 year history.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees more. Be more visible. Cut the BS and jargon and treat everyone the way you want to be treated. Listen to ideas - you might learn something.

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

    Pros

    Work from home, set your own schedule (mostly)

    Cons

    Poor training - not consistent company-wide, Poor management - removed from day to day operations & don't keep up to date with regulations/procedures, Poor compensation - lowest paid adjusters in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    TRAINING - With the exception of annual Adjuster school the training is NOT consistent. ACS & RCM are not required to keep up to date on procedures that adjusters deal with daily. Hard to get answers because no one wants to be the one to interrupt the government regulations incorrectly. Very hard to take care of insureds with "direction" this company gives. Could be reason company is losing business as fast as it it.

    clear the rats out so RCIS is a desirable, un-hostile work environment, bring in good, knowledgeable people

    I worked at RCIS full-time

    Pros

    Wells Fargo $ behind the company, lots of long-term employees, many good, supportive managers. If you get your stuff done, usually you're left alone.

    Cons

    Too many people set in their ways. Plan to get 'MN Nice' to any new idea. Lots of people just moved into roles because of tenure.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with a lot of experience throughout the company. Management is very well connected with their employees, and is very flexible with their needs.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo tends to micromanage RCIS, and implements a lot of unnecessary policies that frustrates many of the RCIS employees. When higher up gets involved in operating procedures, it feels like decisions are made by people who don't necessarily understand the crop insurance business, but would rather keep Wells Fargo brand reputation high (although if you actually worked there, you would realize Wells Fargo is not as good as their commercials). Zurich is now taking over, so there is lots of happy employees within the company!

    Advice to Management

    Wells Fargo did too much micromanagement of the company, causing many frustrations throughout. Wells Fargo also would rather train new employees at lower pay rather than keep good employees at industry wide competitive pay. Hopefully, Zurich taking over the company will allow for flexibility within the company.
