      Great pros and annoying cons

      Dec 29, 2020 - CCC Acquisition Team Lead in Bloomington, IL

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits continue to improve. - 6 weeks paid parental leave for both parents including for adoption and can take additional 4 weeks unpaid or as PTO. - $10,000 adoption reimbursement per child per parent who works at SF. - First $1k of deductible is paid by SF and it rolls over each year if you don't use it. (I just had a child which cost me $0 out of pocket) - Covid has pushed leadership to stress the work/life balance. It sounds like working from home and hybrid options will be available post-pandemic. Great leadership can make a bad job tolerable. The upper management and VPs that I have interacted with have been sharp, competent, and actually seem to care about the problems facing lower level employees.

      Cons

      SF is so big that getting anything changed takes forever. Some areas can be billed as fast changing, but they are not. Everything is slow. Lower level jobs can get repetitive and monotonous. They have done a pretty poor job of anticipating job and staffing needs in some departments (CCC and Claims). Middle management and first line leaders can either be incredibly competent or have no business being in leadership, they just jumped through the hoops and were given the job for that reason.
