New Business Data Specialist
New Business Data Specialist (Former Employee), Portland, ORNovember 18, 2014
Pros: i had a pension plan with health care.
Cons: changing the pension plan and having to retire early.
My work day was talking on the phone helping and training on how to use our payroll system for uploading retirement contribution. Setting up new clients in our system so they would have access to our system. Also setting up all participant in the new plan.

I worked in a very close group of co-workers we had to work together so we were on top of any – more... issues with the system and working with clients that were having issue and covering for each other so our clients were always in good hands.

The hardest part of the job was when they made changes to the system they would not let us know and were would find out from clients.

The best part of the job was helping somebody and and making their job better. – less

It's an insurance company....
Senior Disability Benefits Analyst (Current Employee), Portland, ORAugust 5, 2014
For better or worse Standard is an insurance company. Stable and conservative company which should be around for a long time. Reasonably good benefits and a nice place to work.

However over the last 6-7 years the culture has changed. The pendulum swings often with reactions and counter-reactions constantly. Immediate managers and directors seem to – more... know whats going on but I really question the higher ups if they understand what the consequences of their actions are.

Very dated technology has cost customers and money. No real investment seen when it comes to technology and minimal work from home options. – less

A good workplace that provides all our needs.
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee), Camairines Sur,PhilippinesJune 2, 2014
My typical day at work is dealing with people and providing their needs. I learned a lot about dealing with different people and managing office works. The management provide us a good training and supply us with all we need. The hardest part of this job was the handling of bunch of customers, especially when it was peak season and I do all the task – more... alone. The most enjoyable is when customers are satisfied with our service ad simply says thank you ad promised to be back again, with a smile o their face – less

Strong company that is regularly challenging itself and employees to improve.
Team Leader, Policy Administration (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 18, 2014
I had much opportunity at The Standard. I worked for and with many different individuals who challenged me, supported me and allowed me to develop additional skills such as project management.
Twelve years at a company in today's corporate environment means you'll see a lot of change. I learned the importance of flexibility, determination and responsibility – more... as well as adaptability.
The hardest part of my day was managing through a booked calendar of back to back meetings which primarily focused on future strategies and plans, while making time for employees and the day to day obstacles that can occur during regular business hours. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of my role was in seeing the cultivation of my employees, and the development of their skills and leadership abilities and how this was reflected in an effective, efficient team which could take on additional responsibilities. – less

Management is more reactionary than actionary
Analyst (Current Employee), Portland, OregonMarch 10, 2014
Overall, the teams and employees at the Standard are exemplary however at times it appears that management is so focused on the numbers and bottom line that they forget about the people who help them achieve these.

Office Work Place
Administrative Representative (Former Employee), Portland, ORFebruary 26, 2014
If you enjoy working with people from various background and cultures, then this place is for you. The company do encourage employees to improve themselves through education and training. However there are constant office politics all around you. It can make your work difficult for you. You are constantly dealing with people with mood swings.
