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

    Pros

    Environment and co-workers: It is the most welcoming and friendly environment I've ever experienced. My co-workers are very supportive. Upper management does not feel like upper management. The CEO knows almost everyone by name and could probably tell you everyone's first born child's name. He genuinely cares about you as an individual and is very supportive. Flexibility: Society offers flexible scheduling so employees...

    Cons

    You may be the butt of a couple of jokes. Is that awful? No, but it's really the only con I could think of.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all executives are on the same page. Some executives have a "holier than thou" complex.

    I worked at Society Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company encourages continuing education and offers both tuition reimbursement and offers no-cost self-paced learning for certificates to advance in the company. Good benefits package. Adequate training. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Individual department culture varies a great deal. Lot of pettiness and backstabbing among the rank-and-file lower level employees.

      I have been working at Society Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Midwest niche carrier. Small company, with the associated pros & cons. Can be lots of opportunity for the right person at the right time. Excellent benefits, salary is average to below average. Typical P&C experience.

      Cons

      Pretty limited opportunities for someone with a strong skill set, you get to do what you're good at. Very minimal avenues for advancement due to small size of the company.

      Advice to Management

      Pay more, while the benefits are nice, you're kidding yourself thinking that pay scales are appropriate.

      Pros

      Benefits are excellent. The people are genuinely nice. The company supports the local community and seems to get involved very well

      Cons

      If your not a manager or almost one your opinion means nothing. Won't get anywhere in the company if you disagree with anything.

      Pros

      flex schedule Work from home program CEO is a very nice guy and seems to care about his employees. Benefits are good

      Cons

      work comp department is terrible. Managers are all long time employees and if you are not one of the "favorites" you are done. Full of clicks. VP hides in his office all day and acts like you don't exist. HR doesn't want to hear what you have to say, there is no investigation process, they will always stick up for management.

      Advice to Management

      Please pay attention to management , watch the units turnover and address the issues. If nobody stays in a unit or working for one Manager there has to be issues. Do something about it

      Pros

      Society has an awesome benefit package, including pension and a great 40lk match. Work/life balance is taken very seriously. Society does a great job of offering fun opportunities throughout the year. Some examples are the holiday party, company picnic, jeans on Fridays.

      Cons

      Every company has cons. However, there's nothing worth mentioning at Society.

      Pros

      Culture, opportunties to grow and advance. Positive work/life balance expectations. Supports community and charitable efforts. Is growing and evolving as an organization. Generous benefits. Good and only getting better. I have really enjoyed being a part of Society's growth and building my career with them.

      Cons

      There are very few negatives to speak of a Society Insurance.

      Advice to Management

      Continue pushing forward positively with excellence as the benchmark relative to all decisions.

      I have been working at Society Insurance

      Pros

      Great people, career opportunities, flexible scheduling, generous PTO and employee benefits. Society also offers tuition reimbursement and a free health club membership near the office.

      Cons

      Some employees seem to avoid change and adoption of technology advances. There are others that seem to do the bare minimum while others work much harder and longer.

      Advice to Management

      Get more involved in the community, continue improving communication, offer better healthy foods, make all the supervisors treat employees fairly.

      I worked at Society Insurance

      Pros

      Society does a good job working with employees and creating a work-life balance. There were a lot of clicks which created an uncomfortable workplace. Decent place to work, but not great.

      Cons

      Many clicks. Extremely anal HR department.

      Advice to Management

      Work with employees to create a better work atmosphere. Work and compensation are not compatable.
