Start-Up Culture Brought to a Boring Industry
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – January 28, 2015
I can only speak for the support side of the business --pricing, finance, accounting, IT, etc.-- but the culture is awesome. The auto insurance industry in general is incredibly boring with really large/mature players, but my actual job is awesome. The people that I work with are fun and smart. They understand and appreciate sarcasm and are generally good people. We play ping pong and Mario Kart and throw Nerf darts every day and get $1 tacos every Thursday. All the while, the work that we do has a real impact on a rapidly growing and improving business. It is a young company where change happens a lot and reports/rules get thrown out and rebuilt to make the company better. This fast pace and need for constant improvement is not for everyone, so I can understand why the rest of these reviewers could feel the way they do. That said, if you're a twenty-something with a more technical background and aren't a d-bag, my bet is that you'd like it.
