Company that has gone through a great deal of change, but is now in a much better place.
Credit Risk Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 7, 2017
QBE North America has gone through a great deal of change and restructuring, but has soared past all this to now be a solid workplace. There still remains some transition in certain segments of the Company, but overall, the issues have passed. The North American segment is prime for growth with good leadership and has good potential for incurring more market share.
Solid work environment, supportive workplace culture.
Still transitioning in certain segments of the business.
Senior Insurance Integrity Representative (Former Employee) – Moon, PA – January 13, 2017
company moved to Australia. Closed its offices here. It was a good place to work at the time. I enjoyed my work and the people I worked with. I worked in the Cash Management Department, there were a lot of perks. If you need time off they gave it to you.
Hard working and productive workplace with helpful coworkers
Enterprise Risk Management - Intern (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 11, 2017
Extremely hard working and motivated group of employees working to limit risks within all aspects of business. Ideas and recommendations are always welcome. There is an "open door policy" so if help is ever needed someone will be there to answer the question.
Sr. Developer/Architect (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – May 8, 2016
Working mainly on insurance products like Lender Placed, Loss drafts. My role was boarding clients into our existing systems as per the client guideline. Creating process flow, mapping, business process/rules.
Productive and fun workplace, very nice co-workers couldn't ask for a much better place to work, it was just a great place to work don't think I will ever find another place like that unfortunately my position was out source.
Great work environment but high paced and demanding
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Coraopolis, PA – March 7, 2016
The supervisors are great and eager to help but the constant nonstop pace of the calls can get extremely tiresome. The work/life balance leaves much to be desired as all vacation days need to be approved of first, sick days can be detrimental to your future time off if not reported in the proper way, there's more than enough mandatory OT, and the shift times aren't flexible at all.
The pay is good though and fellow coworkers try to keep the work environment as lighthearted as possible.
Paralegal (Current Employee) – Remote – January 24, 2016
Work from home position, great co-workers, supervisor and manager. Must learn to balance daily duties. Not a lot of social interaction. Hardest part is never meeting who you work with. Most enjoyable is being home and saving money.
save $ working from home
not a lot of social interaction, can't attend company functions
Personal Lines Underwriting (Former Employee) – Sun Prairie, WI – January 7, 2016
Company is taking American jobs overseas to the Philippines. Lots of US jobs have already been lost & will continue to be at least thru 2017. Management doesn't have a clue about how the "worker bees" really feel about their jobs and company. Stressful place to work with much multi-tasking. No recognition for a job well done (except for favorites). Management doesn't make individual person be accountable for their workload.
Small Business Underwriter (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – November 17, 2015
I worked with minimum supervision as I knew what I needed to do each and every day, Management was good and if assistance was needed I could always reach out to them for assistance.
my co-workers were great team players we would reach out to each other if we needed assistance you were recognized by your co-workers if you did a great job or did something beyond your normal job duties.
What I loved about my job was being able to assist our customers (agents) with any issue they might have to an account they were working on if I did not know the answer right away I would advise them I would call them back as soon as I had a solid answer for them.
My day was spent answering calls from agents. Working on the company's ImageRight system and rating system. Setting up new business policies for my underwriters. Sending to processing, amendment request within my authority. Keeping renewals within the company's standards. Ordered inspection reports, specific rates and many other reports that underwriter needed. Local management for some time was outstanding. Managers were awesome and always there to help. My co-workers were wonderful and made coming to work a pleasure each day. The hardest part of my job was not having people in management that could answer questions about problems that may arise. I very much enjoyed my agents and all of my co-workers.
Insurance Ops Representative (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – October 8, 2015
I really enjoyed this job they made coming to work very easy. The overtime did get to be a challenge some days but I can't complain. I worked through a temp agency and they treated me as if I was part of the tenured staff. Unfortunately once the Lender Services dept which I worked here in Arizona got sold I lost my job. I would recommend this employer to others
Loved working for QBE, fantastic management on the Claims Compliance Team. I managed several audits and risks identified as a result of those audits. Co-workers were very informative & supportive on the various projects. The hardest part of the job was obtaining meeting time on calendars and nailing down decisions due to the transitions that were taking place. My favorite part of my job was managing the newsletter that went out to 800 staff members.
Work from home
In a time of tremendous transition over the next few years.
