    I have been working at Westfield Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work from home, Nice and Innovative building, Wonderful Clients

    Cons

    The system and processes are outdated. Leadership talks of catching up with technology, automation, and innovation, but we keep taking steps back instead of moving forward. Pay could be extremely better and benefits only provide 2 options... High premium or high deductible. Only one option for dental and vision. You only get a lunch break with no other breaks throughout your work day and the workflow is extremely backlogged. We are given extremely outrageous goals that nobody could complete, especially if the company isn't looking into better processes and technology to accomadate. Management still plays into favoritism and hires new employees that either already work within the company, are friends or family of employees. The company is not as diverse as it likes to think it is. Not every department knows what other departments work on, so a lot gets sent to the wrong place. Everyone does their work differently than everyone else and there are no specific set of instructions on how to do your job. Then there are the cliques, and if your new to the company and don't know anyone, it's hard to fit in and feel welcomed. It's basically working anywhere else, except constantly moving to older processes, systems,technology, ect. It's not great but it's not bad either. At least there's work.

    Pros

    Great people, gorgeous building/grounds, work life balance, and decent benefits.

    Cons

    The facade crumbles very quickly due to the unhealthy undercurrent of negative behaviors. Many long term IT leaders have an overinflated sense of effectiveness which results in an inability/unwillingness to accept diversity. A lack of desire to hold ineffective leaders accountable fosters cronyism, defunct performance management, and “good old boy” behavior. The right words are often said however rarely backed by action.
