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

    Pros

    Nice people for the most part, especially in the other departments. VPs are down to earth. C Level execs are very approachable. Shorter work week. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Middle management in MIS is not qualified - there is a lack of focus on formal education, i.e., your manager most likely does not have a C.S. degree. Focus is on promoting from within, so if you are an engineer, do not expect to encounter that proven methodology you picked up in college or your internship, or any software engineering position with any company you may have been employed by recently (within the last... 10 years). The call themselves agile but do not practice agile development. Underwriters have more control than engineers...

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade MIS across the board. Hire managers with C.S. degrees from top tier schools. Eliminate PACE awards - it's cronyism at it's worst. Hold managers accountable for employee continuing education and career path development.
