    Pros

    -technology is up-to-date and systems thinking helps streamline the claims process for adjusters and customers -a variety of resources readily available for claims advisors -access to benefits and CIP courses right away -great opportunity to gain exposure to claims as the role transitions from Internal Service Advisor to Claims Advisor -a variety of opportunities within the organization (although you need approval in order to move onto a different role and that depends on a variety of factors) -brightly lit, open-office concept environment -very large offices with hundreds of people which makes it easy to meet new people and helps to create visibility when it comes to diversity

    Cons

    -politics; most people have family and life-long friends here so you will most likely not have the support that you need and will always be at the bottom of the totem pole because everyone is looking out for themselves or the people that they care about most
