Bilingual Customer Service (Former Employee), toronto, on – September 5, 2014
Cons: everything you can imagine that can go wrong, goes wrong!
worst job ever
non professional management poor training favoritism weird break schedule(can work up to 5 hours before 1st break) short on staff resulting in irritation of customers and pressure on CSR having to lie to customers. immorality- no one cares about what claimants have gone through or expecting,as long as you clock in and out,that is all – more... that matters. Not afraid to fire someone who has worked for them for 10+ years just so they can hire someone whom they'll pay less. – less

Underwriting Service Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – May 7, 2014
Cons: management, no advancement opportunities
Overall, this is a good company to work for. The pay and benefits are sufficient, but there is no organization within the company and no training programs. It's sink or swim.
Employees are overworked and stressed with little or no recognition for their efforts. Management is horrible. It's a hierarchy of favoritism. If you are not liked, then you pretty – more... much are getting no where within the company.
Once you get into a position, there is no room for advancement, especially if you do your job very well. Internal postings are usually blocked by the manager. The only way to get a higher position with more pay is to look outside of the company. – less
Pros: global company with opportunities to oexplore abroad & other avenues
Cons: we sometimes become a stat & rthe personal focus & contribution is lost
Very busy with some members of staff having too much to deal with in a day. I learned the Insurer side of the business & how to rate risks. Management in any organisation can work with you or against you, however, a winning recipe is always one where a consensus is achieved & everybody strives towards the same meaningful goals. Co-workers are an integral – more... part of the job & we need to respect each person as an individual & work harmoniously together. The hardest part of the job is to maintain an even balance between business & personal life. I tend to continue working after hours especially on the Blackberry. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people & developing new relationships & cementing existing ones. – less
