Company Culture

As I indicated in another area, the company suffers low moral unless you are in management. If you belong in claims, clerical or underwriting be prepared to be content with having personal satisfaction only.

Support from management

Weak management style amongst supervisors and upper management. Extreme cases of micromanagement and low level decisions need approval from multiple levels of hierarchy.

Teamwork

If you are looking for a team environment or positive backing from management, this may not be the best fit.

Freedom to work independently

This company is based on micromanagement. The workload is distributed in a fair manner however the manner in which files are to be worked are not structured for individual success.

Internal Communication

Meetings are held to discuss "numbers" and "goals". There is minimal direction on what changes need to be made in order to reach the desired figures. There is a disconnect between upper and mid level management.

Career Development

Not very much movement

Overall compensation for your work

Do some research here. Benefits are good however the salary is not competitive compared to other companies within the same geographical area

Office / Work Environment

Software for claims system has just been updated to what the competitive companies have been using for the past 10 years. Aside from that equipment and the facilities are current.

Work-Life Balance

Weekends are off and all major holidays are observed. Taking work home is not an acceptable practice

Company Image

Do your research. The company is highly focused on its customers which is great. Unfortunately it's at the cost of its employees. After 8 years of service I witnessed low moral throughout most of the departments

Job Security

Unfortunately adjusters are an expendable commodity. Other positions appear to have a higher level of security such as IT, management and facility maintenanance

Challenging Work

As an adjuster there are minimal proud moments. Management does not reward or recognize achievements on a regular basis. Job security is considered your reward.

Inclusive / Diverse

Upper management is very set in their methods. This company are not leaders in the industry more so followers of the competitions success.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Focus on employees. They are the face and voice of the company.
