Underwriter - Workers' Compensation (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 30, 2017
BHHC is a fine place to work. The people are nice, the work is not complicated and it's one of the best insurance carriers in its respective market. If you want to work for an insurance carrier, a Berkshire Hathaway Company is a great place to establish yourself.
Pros

It is truly a great place to work. Everyone is so supportive of each other, and you will learn a lot. They provide training and you will get a lot of opportunity to move up the ladder if you want to grow in the insurance industry.

One of California’s largest Workers' Compensation insurance providers. Industries serviced include both construction and general industry.

You have to work hard to make it but the opportunity to advance is what keeps you motivated. There is always opportunity to grow. Management constantly changes which is the con in it all.

Good position while completing graduate school
Underwriting Support Specialist II (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 10, 2017
I learned a considerable amount about collaborating with other departments. The culture felt a bit shallow; it felt there was more focus on the gossip than the work at times. Management was not always in agreement and it often showed in how necessary information was or was not relayed to different teams. However, there are many people in the company that have a great balance between displaying personality while still being productive.
Pros
Flexible schedules, free coffee/tea
Cons
Low compensation, lack of communication across underwriting department

The company pays the commission checks very quickly. Material is supplied for home listings. The broker is fun and will work with you. You do have to do all the work yourself ( part of being a real estate agent).

Pays quickly
