Good company
Senior Underwriting Assistant (Former Employee) –  Salem, VADecember 13, 2016
It's a good company to work for. Decent salary and benefits.
Some leadership issues, but that's everywhere. Knowledgeable co-workers willing to help each other. Gossip/drama on a daily basis.

Enterprise Market Research Analytics (EMRA) Intern (Current Employee) –  Farmington, CTOctober 20, 2016
Flex time was great and given to all employees so you could come in earlier as wanted and be able to leave earlier. Also working from home was not discouraged.

Poor Management
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Farmington, CTSeptember 11, 2016
Management consists of individuals that other companies either wanted to get rid of or already did. They do not support their employees & are only concerned about controlling expenses. Favoritism is out of control and the work environment is horrible.
Pros
Fellow workers are very nice people
Cons
Management is the worst

Stay away they are liars
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Canton maMarch 30, 2016
I was due to have a phone interview with this company and they had the audacity to cancel at the last minute. I contacted them because they wanted to reschedule and they never got back to me. When they finally did they gave the lame excuse that the posirion had been filled. I asked for a supervisors name they refused to give it. Obviously a poor company to work for if they can't follow through with the recruitment process
Pros
None
Cons
Everything is bad about this company

Great People and Working Environment
Examiner (Former Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 28, 2016
I worked for OneBeacon 6+ years and was generously rewarded for my hard work. I worked with a great group of people. You're considered an adult and as long as you try hard and do the work expected of you, you are not micro-managed. The company has very flexible working hours, as long as you don't abuse the privilege.
Pros
Generous pay, no micro-managing, flexible hours
Cons
Sometimes the work load was a little overwhelming but I considered it job security

Maybe concentration on specialty will work for them
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canton, MAJune 28, 2014
OneBeacon was a fairly nice place to work. The people were great but they decided to stick to only specialty products and got rid of all the traditional lines of business.

I don't know if this helped their bottom line, but the company is a mere shell of its former self,
Pros
Good working environment
Cons
Once it went public, all decisions were based on immediate profit.
