"Be willing to search for a good manager or don't bother unless you are ok with "presenteeism".
Innovation and creativity are given a LOT of lip service here. As soon as you take advantage of an opportunity or achieve some success, the long knives will come out for you. I am astonished that this company has not been sued yet for hostile workplace and bullying conditions.
HR will not help you.
If you are involved with someone in the company or have a relative working there, you will be years ahead of anyone else.
If you plan on staying in Erie, PA, and your career goals are not too high, you may like it here. Otherwise, come prepared with an exit strategy, and DOCUMENT EVERYTHING the minute you feel something is "off".
DO NOT trust HR to help you. Seek outside support and an atty. necessary. They protect their own."
Overall Job Satisfaction:
Are women & men treated equally?
Does the CEO support gender diversity?
One thing Erie Insurance Group can improve?
"Management and HR are unwilling to address complaints about hostile workplace and bullying.
Be open to ACTION on verifiable bad behavior by management. ERIE is consistently ranked lowest in this area for a good reason.
Listening to employees and taking them seriously rather than attempting to "cover" for each other.
Follow their own code of conduct,"
Level of Flexibility
"As is with everything at ERIE, if you have a bad manager, you are doomed.
It will be nearly impossible to overcome this barrier, especially as a woman, Most bullies here are woman on woman, especially in IT division."
