Very good place to work
A lot of very long serving employees at this location. That means there is very little room for advancement until a person in a desired role you are looking for retires. They also change their senior management roles very frequently.

Makes sure you keep all you’re trips sheets because they lose them a lot for some reason at the office . The Forman are mostly very high on themselves and like to talk down at people

soul sucking company
Managers are mostly white, so if you are minority, you will not be promoted just because of that. Of course, thats not what they would or could ever claim, but given that majority of the people with the highest yielding results are minorities but managers are not, speaks volumes. So, if all you need is a 9-5 with little hope for growth, this is for you.
Pros
some work from home days for some departments
Cons
everything else

No Team Work
Apply my previous experience so I can change some of the work we do using automation tools but team do not want to make any changes and still want to do the same old way. No one willing to learn the new technology and apply on day to day work.
Pros
Poor Team work
Cons
Good Management

Management lacks any real direction.
The organization is always changing.
There quality control is below industry standard.

The company needs to invest in there employees so they can achieve success.

Company claims to be a family organization but when you have a family emergency it is frowned upon.


The best part of the job is the people in which you work with.

Fun, Exciting, Caring Company
Foresters is a Fraternal Benefits Society, they are about helping communities and believe our members and surrounding communities are what shape the company and are always looking for other ways to assist.
There is always something to boost morale and they do not treat their employees as a number, they are people and Foresters cares.

Great place to work.
I began my career with Foresters straight from graduating from high school. I started my career in a junior position and was promoted throughout the years to many other positions. I worked with many different people over the years and developed many great friendships. Foresters was like a second home.
Pros
Great benefit packages and pension plans. Easily accessible by car.
Cons
none
