    Advice to Management

    Listen tot he company pulse, bring back fully the winning growing culture that once empowered this company. (Remember "The Patch")

    I have been working at Tower Hill Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Insurance, pay, Christmas party, gym

    Cons

    Hard to make friends. Just because someone is smart and "gets" it doesn't make them a good manager. Some Managers are cruel and harass their employees. Management is sent too many directions. People are jumping ship because it's too chaotic trying to keep up. Why aren't Manager's doing more to help us all in these major transitions? Coming in late and taking two hour lunches results in unproductive days.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved. You just throw major projects at your employees without any direction and sit back and laugh when we fail. What kind of person are you?? You're a sadistic type.

    I worked at Tower Hill Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably interesting technical work, decent pay, good introductory job.

    Cons

    Middle management is spineless and lets upper management throw tantrums and mis-micro-manage software teams. Business analysts provide little value and frequently throw development teams 'under the bus.' QA team refuses to share any details on the automation testing done; features are commonly completely untested, or in the rare case, tested twice (QA and developer written tests). Developers are 'resources' who are thrown at problems regardless of their skill sets or experience. Rapid churn on most technical positions. Awful choice of worst-of-breed tools (issue trackers, organizational knowledge, time tracking software all b-a-d). Also, business casual? Ech.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good staff, treat them like humans, pay them just a bit more, and stand up for them and the decisions they make.

    I worked at Tower Hill Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome gym, many fun days with baked goods, good area discounts.

    Cons

    The following definitions basically sum up what happens at this company:

    CRONYISM: the appointment of friends and associates to positions of authority, without proper regard to their qualifications.

    NEPOTISM: favoritism granted to relatives or close friends, without regard to their merit.

    Both end the same…

    IN SHORT, it's not WHAT you know but WHO you know.

    Advice to Management

    focus on knowledge, ability, education and not who your friends are

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent working area

    Cons

    Nepotism, good ol' boy mentality, unprofessional or disrespectful communication, playing favorites, performance and values expectations are unclear, low salaries, no career path.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees as if they are second class, they deserve respect and more than free pizza or free hot dogs. Have a recruiter to select your personnel, managers and supervisors hiring their friends or relatives, specially when they don't have the education or the experience is not good.

    Pros

    Business allows you to move between departments to find your best fit. People are friendly and easy to work with. Most of the time, they give you the tools you need to do your job. Steady raises, opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Report crazy. Everyone wants business metrics, but they aren't consistent across departments, or sometimes not from month to month.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible. Interact with departments.
