Home Office is a fun place, Field work is tough
Outside Property Claims (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 17, 2016
If you are based out of home office the atmosphere is fun with lots of activities, fun times and personal attention. This company still views itself as a start up and as such you will perform most of the data entry and administrative work necessary for claims that most other companies have automated or home office employees complete. If you work remote you will have to complete a regular case load, all of the admin work, plus you will have inside work shifted to you on a regular basis when you do not have a full case load. There is no opportunity to "catch up" if your territory becomes slow. Management and home office does not understand the time requirements of being a field employee that is required to travel daily. The company has been purchased by progressive and will be changing its structure to meet the needs of a non standard insurance company (from regular homeowners to high risk/condos/apartments, ect) As such claim volume is high and there is very little complexity. If you are used to and looking for a normal p&c carrier to work for this isn't it.
Pros
frequent small bonuses and opportunity for company related travel and entertainment
Cons
you will work every day of the week and evenings to keep up

Fit the mold
Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLMarch 17, 2014
Middle Management lacks direction and essential skills to make this company a complete success. Senior Management (founders/owners) involved on a daily basis which is responsible for the great people who work there. A very delicate balance between family and work. It must be all about your job and your family is your support to success which is the company mold. Good benefits, great facility, great people, Middle Managers need training.

Under paid employees & Horrible Mid level managment
CPSR (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLSeptember 7, 2013
Well a typical day was extremely busy from the time you walk in until the time you leave. If you take a vacation or miss a day, the work is still waiting for you and puts you further behind. Most people with a management title have no clue on how to even manage people, problems and productivity. People pretty much did what ever they wanted to do while on the clock didn't answer phone calls or contribute to the team and still had job security. They are cheap and instead of using a business expense for office parties, birthdays, etc, they expect you to chip in money once or twice a month for co workers birthday's. Not only does it distract most of the productivity during a typical workday, but puts you further behind when you decorate clean up, shoot the breeze, order lunch. Most of the co workers were great to work with, but there were a few who don't pull there own weight and like telling on other employees. The job is cake and an 8th grader can do the work. The training completely stinks and is the main reason the employees have no clue what to do. If you have no opinions, are susceptible to being brain washed and love spending your hard earned money on all of your employees birthdays that you really don't care about than this is the place for you. Last but no least, I do have to say that most of the officers are solid, but have no clue as to what is really going on.
Pros
no micro managment, hour plus lunch breaks.
Cons
nepotism is wide spread, zero managerial skills for all mid level managers, lack of advancement, and very low pay compared to industry average

Family work enviroment with the opportunity to learn and grow,
Personal Lines Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 23, 2012
I loved working at ASI. I have meet and is still friends with former co-workers. The atmosphere is a family enviroment, everyone looks out for one another and are eager to assist and show you all their is to cause you to grow in the industry. The encouragement you get from the family of ASI employees are speechless. I highly recommend this company when looking for an opportunity to advance and obtain long lasting friendships.
