Pros: pay, bonus, co-workers
Cons: stress, do more with less attitude, job security due to frequent restructures, old school mentality
Safeco was a good organization with a great focus and talented people. Several years after purchased by Liberty Mutual things changed when they wanted to streamline PL business. This led to multiple LOB restructurings that impacted both Liberty and Safeco legacy employees. At that point location was a bigger factor and not talent/performance in determining if you had a job. In my opinion if seemed that more Safeco workers were negatively impacted. When work is moved to a location that requires hiring a substantial amount of untrained people, while you let trained talent walk, salary is most likely a big reason. Though, not sure if they considered all the money and resources used to develop the talent they had. Liberty has an old school mentality and dislikes virtual workers. Safeco made virtual worker program work very well and morale was stronger than Liberty.
