OB is OK

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Canton, MA (US)

I worked at OneBeacon full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe finance department has some pleasant people to work with. Management appears to care about helping you develop professionally and be healthy.

ConsThe company was going through a lot of changes when I worked there. The pay is low and since they went public they were doing everything possible to bring down their expense ratio, aka laying off a lot of people and taking away a lot of employee benefits. The finance department doesn't have much room for growth. It also had a very political feel to it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
