Relaxed Atmosphere
Agribusiness Intern (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 31, 2013
Pros: paid internship
Cons: doing same thing most of the week
Loved the people I worked for and with and learned so much. The atmosphere was relaxed and non-judgement, and very comfortable. The hardest part about the work was not understanding all the terms and hearing them consistently.

Typical Large Box Insurance Company
Tech Guy (Current Employee), Southeast USDecember 6, 2012
Pros: a lot of good experienced folks.
Cons: a few fakers worming their way up the ladder.
I like them fine - I've worked for most of the big guys over the past 30+ years. They are a specialty group, with many separate companies under their wing. Be carefully where you step, some of these companies they sell off quickly when the time is right. I'm with a division they acquired, that has been making them money, so things are good for now. – more... They don't like promoting from within, they like to put you in a box and stifle any advancement if you are good at your job you were hired to do. So learn what you can, but always keep an eye peeled for opportunities that may arise elsewhere. Pay is average to slightly above. Some of the specialty groups they own have very different reporting structures. You may be reporting to someone you always thought should be reporting to you. Ha! You best have a sense of humor to get by on most days. My motto in the insurance world is keep smiling - it keeps management wondering what the heck you're up to. – less
