Overall good place, reasonably flexible company
UNDERWRITING TEAM LEAD (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – February 28, 2015
A typical day would be reviewing submissions for high value markets - quoting and binding and assist with any other tasks assigned.
I learned about the basics of insurance in general, underwriting techniques of weighing risks and using underwriting tools to keep the book of business profitable.
Management was in a state of change and training so could sometimes not be very approachable.
My co-workers were hard workers and good people, we would work together to make sure all areas of underwriting (new business, renewals, endorsements, etc) were completed.
Hardest part of my job was overcoming some of the departments that were territorial and those employees that had a "it's not my job" mentality.
The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with our agents on a daily basis, and the challenge of each file since every file (especially with the high value market) required a different approach
