Underwriter (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – April 20, 2015
There are many changes and challenges facing SAIF and workdays were various in terms of what to expect. They were committed to the injured worker and making sure they offered the best customer service possible. The people that they employ at SAIF make the company. Management changes and decisions makers can make things difficult and that is a challenge that we worked around but this varied from department to department. The people make the job...
on-site cafeteria, great benefits, people
changing dynamics and trustworthiness of upper management
There is a lot to manage. A typical day can consist of multiple meetings, settlement negotiations, training, constant email communications, and of course interactions with injured workers. My co-workers are always willing to help and bounce ideas off each other. The autonomy is my favorite and most enjoyable part of the job.
SAIF is a great place to work. They care about their employees, provide workout classes during the lunch hour, promoting healthy life
Document Services Manager (Current Employee) – Salem, OR – June 12, 2013
A typical day for me would include meetings, resolving problems, coaching employees and performing the daily duties of the central scanning unit. SAIF has been my life and I consider it my second home. My co-workers are great to work with, providing support when I need it. The most difficult part of my job is managing people and writing performance reviews. I enjoy the people I work with and enjoy the challenge of meeting the deadlines faced each day to complete the work timely. I have learned how important it is to do a good job as it affects not only those within the corporation, but also outside customers. Customer service is the #1 priority in SAIF.
free exercise classes; benefits, including medical, vacation and sick leave
I can't say there are any cons. I enjoy my job but I'm ready to retire and work part-time.

It is a great company with good benefits. There are a lot of people who truly do enjoy and love their job. However, there are those who do not have the best interpersonal skills. I found that a lot of the management were not as knowledgeable as I thought they would be. Some departments would take 30 min breaks while others would take 15 min breaks. Standards would not be consistent through out the company.
Good benefits, holidays off and the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas eve off.
Inconsistent policies throughout departments, incompetent managers

good culture, modern company, mission-driven
old guard employees can be stodgy, otherwise a great company.
