Needs to pay fairly
Underwriter Assistant (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 30, 2019
Amtrust is not a terrible place to work. The company does not value its employees. It is a flexible place to work and the comradery is good. I've worked here for a long time now and I would love to see changes soon.

Good place to work.
Processor (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHSeptember 23, 2019
It was a very nice place to work. However, there was no job security unless you knew someone. Unreasonable goals were set making it a little stressful in trying to meet your monthly percentage rate.

Great company, poor management team.
SharePoint Architect (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHSeptember 19, 2019
Amtrust was a very aggressive company, and the people were very skilled and at times overworked. Management team was not very focused on their people only the financial bottom line. Caused many to jump ship to other companies.

It started off well...
Workers' Compensation Claims Adjuster (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 9, 2019
I worked for the company for a couple of years. I was able to watch all of the changes that were made as management changed. Not all of the changes were good. Due to many of those changes, the company lost a lot of employees, especially in the Chicago office. The benefits were not all that great. You pay a lot for insurance (PPO & HMO... I had both during my time there). They expect a lot from you with very little reward. In the beginning, we had great staff morale and activities. Over the years it declined as they took away the few perks we had.

Overall, great learning company but I would not recommend planning to stay. You will certainly get the experience.
Pros
Great place for learning
Cons
Healthcare costs, company events are trash now, poor management

Accounts Receivable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHAugust 26, 2019
I do not have anything nice to say about this place. There are a few minute details that I can say were a nice advantage of working there but other than that they shouldn't even be in business!

Was alright, laid back
Claims (Former Employee) –  UsaAugust 16, 2019
Claims are claims. Good work life balance here but then again, I suppose it depends on which dept you're in. Coworkers are nice/friendly for the most part. However, the company went through a "change" and it effected everyone even though they assured everyone initially that it wouldn't.
Pros
Dress down, Schedule, work life balance, decent start pay, nice coworkers
Cons
No free lunches or events like norm insurance jobs, Due to company changes, things got a bit "shaky" for lack of a better word, Also no advancement

When I first started it was a great place to work. Over the past two years there has been restructuring and the whole atmosphere changed. It was very stressful.

Its a great job depending on the department your shooting for. By the way, Job advancement is not guaranteed. Expect new Hires to get paid more than you as well.

Great advancement opportunities
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 6, 2019
This is a great company to work for if you want to advance, but you have to do your part and work hard to get there. The people and atmosphere is great, someone is always willing to help. We received several extra days off through the year and if you are salary you will have the option to either work from home 3 days a week or do the 10/4 schedule.

Workload is awful. Managers who don’t know what they are doing and play favorites. This is for the Liability Managers in Concord CA. Don’t waste your time or career here.

Productive IT Environment with highly skilled Systems Engineers
Global IT Director of System Engineering (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 29, 2019
The most enjoyable part of my job at Amtrust is my team and peers. Everybody is always willing to jump in and help when needed which has built an excellent workplace culture in our environment. We recently went from public to private which brought layoffs and attrition in the environment which has shaken a lot of great people but we are doing everything possible to retain good talent.
Pros
Highly skilled employees and peers and always available to assist
Cons
Recent layoffs has affected employee trust in leadership

Accounts Receivable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 25, 2019
Company has great vacation time, but that is where the positivity ends. No training or career advancement. A lot of young people with little to no people skills. Our benefits package isn't very good. Overall a decent starter job but for seasoned and experienced job seekers wouldn't recommend.

Many changes on the rise
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 17, 2019
Mgmt has revamped, restructured, and cleaned- house. Amtrust will likely become more efficient as a result. Mgmt is rather cold, and provides the mentality that everyone is replaceable.
