Commercial Lines Underwriting Associate (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – January 19, 2018
This was my first insurance job and the best job I have ever had. My managers and coworkers are all people of the highest caliber. I came in as an entry-level employee, and they culitvated me into an insurance professional. I highly recommend this company to anyone in the insurance industry, and especially to any newcomers to the field.

This is a decent company to work for if you keep your mouth shut. They do not value all employees the same. I had to leave due to a hostile environment, HR was aware and did nothing. I was genuinely surprised and hurt they let me walk. Work/life balance is good.

Acadia is an ok place to work if you don't have an opinion. I left Acadia as I was told I had no future and I endured a lot of mental/verbal abuse. HR wasn't concerned with my hostile environment. The level of respect you receive depends on your department. Acadia cares more about the employees bringing in money as opposed to the service employees.
This is a fun place to work. The people are amazing but the pay isn''t the greatest. Like most places, you have to know who to impress and how to impress them. Outside of the box thinking isn't always appreciated and you may find yourself stuck if you do happen to be one of those people. Overall, I'd give the place a 3.5/5. This is a great company to retire with but not so great when you're just getting started.

While I enjoy working at Acadia. The deparment I currently work in has had several changes in the senior level leadership. This has caused for several changes in the way to view things and makes it difficult to understand the Acadia way.
Loss Control (Former Employee) – New England – August 23, 2015
Ok place to hang if your just in it for a paycheck. All the LC folks with talent have already jumped ship. Trust is an issue with SR. Managment. It's been going down hill with each president change, which is about every 5 years.
Progressive employer; great lunchroom; Thanksgiving dinner
Casualty Claims Adjuster for Commercial Liability (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – August 16, 2012
Working in commercial lines insurance is intensive but rewarding. It is important to have a working relationship with your fellow teammates. The workload is very heavy but we all got along well and assisted each other with some of the load. We all were the best at something and shared quite frequently with others.
Advancement is a long process, mostly because Acadia is a small company, less that 100 adjusters in six locations. A nice aspect is the offices are all-insurance combined, about 65 people to my office.
The down side is the workload. Sometime adjusters work 60-70 hours weekly, no overtime pay as we were salaried.
great people! lots of togetherness among all lines.
Excellent Regional carrier with solid leadership and good vision to the future.
Commercial Lines Director (Current Employee) – Westbrook, ME – June 5, 2012
Acadia is a customer/agent focused company. We spend a large part of our energy finding ways to make common sense decisions that benefit both parties. We have established an approach that allows us face time with our key insureds and helps them beyond just claims experiences when it comes to company interacts. That makes Acadia different.
Senior Los Control Rep (Former Employee) – Bedfod NH – August 30, 2011
The latest management team is focused only on writing business and not writing profitable business. Employees are under tremendous stress and consistently asked to bend their ethics. Not the place it once was.
