    I worked at A.M. Best full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you want a career in insurance, this is the place to go everything about insurance, from debt ratings to ILS to captives, can be learnt benefits are decent like health insurance and study support work is not too demanding compared to other wall-street-type jobs insurance credit ratings is a very niche field (good or bad) brand name still good in the industry

    Cons

    politics at higher levels comparable to soviet-style politburos power struggles / unfair appraisals compel talented staff to leave IT systems at least one generation behind other professional services rating methodology is not being developed fast enough shareholder passiveness has led to ill-discipline among management might-makes-right mindset has developed in some staff the internal controls environment here is abyssmal had this been a publicly-listed company, the stock price is unlikely to go upwards

    I worked at A.M. Best for more than 3 years

    Pros

    not many, great coworkers and some smart people that are stuck because they don't want or can't commute to NYC for a better, much better job. Those managers that are giving it 4 stars are only trying to raise the score so people will go work there, trust me and the 1 star reviews, you will not be happy or appreciated, EVER! NEVER!

    Cons

    so many things so little time..., the owners of the company don't really care about employees, you STILL have to swipe your card to go out to lunch and if you are 1 minute late from your 45 minute lunch break you get on a blacklist. Same if you leave work 1 minute before you hit 7:45 hours for a days work! like a previous review, it is like a bad, really bad episode of Mad Man. no bonus, they find a reason to not give you a decent raise at review time and no room for growth. The last VP spot that came open had 5 candidates, very good candidate that have been with the company many, many years, some of them decades. really people get on a train and go to NYC or Philly, you will see some happy, engaging people at your new job, and make 30 or 40% mone money AND be appreciated, not a prisoner!

    I have been working at A.M. Best

    Pros

    Not too stressful work environment. The company is fairly decent about letting you have family time not interfere with work time.

    Cons

    They like to infantilize their employees with silly rules about what kind of food you can have at your desk and very annoying human resource practices.
