"It's a good place to learn underwriting. But raises are few and far between, and the people making the big decisions often have very little idea of or concern for the actual effects. "

"There is a lot of talent in this company but with the constant change happening at the top and the large number of legacy leadership, it's a very challenging place to work."

"It takes a lot of work to investigate where you stand relative to peers (in compensation and otherwise). Depending on the office, it may be difficult to get relevant information from others at your same level. "

"The benefits and policies are good. Research the department first and history of reorganizations, online reviews, etc. before accepting a position. Core business units earning revenue are in a better position for long term stability rather than business support roles which are being largely outsourced or sent offshore. The company is going through significant change and restructure, so it could turn out to be a great career or short time before being laid off."

"There is a lot of opportunity but also a lot of chaos as the company is constantly changing the entire organizations structure."

"Your career development and work / life balance largely depends on the specific business or function that you work in. That being said, it is easier to shift roles / departments within the company when compared to other large financial institutions, and there are employee resource groups to that generate networking opportunities and development opportunities. "
"Great opportunities and benefits. Enjoyable working environment and learning plans."
"Its a great place to work, although we are not where we want to be from a diversity perspective. However, there is no doubt the new CEO is committed to women & diversity at the top; his Executive Leadership Team is 45% women."

"They value work-life balance, with little overtime and generous vacation days. Working from home once a week is a norm in many departments. That said, it's overwhelmingly male at the top and a rigid chain of command culture doesn't allow a more vibrant and dynamic work environment."
"I've worked here more than 10 years. In general women are mostly in support roles, upper management is considered the "old boys" club, but that has slowly been changing in the last few years as new CEO's try and break that mentality up. Maternity leave is excellent and the company was good at supporting nursing after return to work as well. Flexible work arrangements 100% depend on the manager (and I have a good one) and the state laws. In general I have been happy working here."
"I've worked here for 2.5 years and women work in various roles from support to executive. Few women in upper management, executive positions. Most all support positions are staffed by women. Culture if very corporate and not comfortable to women. 12 weeks paid maternity leave plus 8 weeks paid paternity leave. Flexible work arrangements are available, but difficult to procure. Expected to work from home if must leave early to pick up children."
"I have been fortunate to have had a long career here and have generally been treated fairly. There are a lot of women working for the organization but it is difficult to get into senior leadership positions. Management is male-dominated and not diverse which makes it difficult to network with them so those in mid-level management positions don't seem to advance because of that. When they do, it seems those choices are made simply because of diversity requirements and they do not last long in those positions. The insurance world is still an old boys club but it is also a very rewarding business and if you work hard and care about your business you will be rewarded for that. You can set yourself up to have a long career here and things will continue to change for the positive as people retire and new opportunities emerge."
"There are more women in the lower class role, however, we do have a woman that runs our portion of the company."
"The company back in the day was great; the new regime that moved in after the 2008 crash are monsters. The hours and salaries really vary by department."
"Its been great!"
"In management they have. Wonderful women's forum. Opportunity for Advancement for women is strongly encouraged"
"i've been there for 8 years and the benefits and people I work with are just great!excellent company."
"About to start soon, but so far the salary is above average and they offered me 30% increase in what I earned in my previous company. Vacation, benefits, 401k, and pension are all great. Team seems nice and supportive, and willing to give any training required. They are very generous and take care of you."
"Like with most areas of economy, the field of women narrows as you move higher in the company."
"In five years the culture has shifted in some groups to allow more remote work which has helped with balancing work/life. It's an intense place to work and some people put in a lot of hours, it depends on the culture of the team and management style."
