Great place to work with great people. I would recommend applying to this company. I have had a great time working there so far and enjoy it. However, in my own experience with the division that I worked in, very few or if ever promotions are handed out. Once you are in the position you are in, you stay there and receive a yearly raise.

Management out of touch with employees. The employees that do their work end up getting more dumped and expected on them. No recognition for hard work or going the extra mile. Also GA states that they encourage advancement but applied for other jobs in the company and didn't receive any, politics are everywhere.

Great American is truly a great place to work and grow your career. They have an awesome work/life balance and care about their culture. They have a very casual environment and a high focus on security for their customers and employees.
its a great company to work for. everyday is different and with me its mostly the management that works better with people and helps encouarge everyone. Team work is the important culture here. The hardest part of the job is having people or team members that have been with the company for more than 10 years and hesitant to share information.

To Management - The harder you work, the more work you give me. I'm check to check and we do not see being able to afford a small house in our lifetime working here. They do not reward talent and they just don't recognize it. I am way under utilized.
It's a job
Overly cheap with employees, 1980s furniture and culture, ZERO work flex time, need PTO for a doctors appt, overly micro managed and if you havent worked there long or not inside a circle, your are just out and they talk about you. Very tit-for-tat culture.
Appropriately challenging environment with an entrepreneurial spirit. I was involved with setting strategies, company acquisitions, development of staff, and the introduction of new technologies. I felt everyday was an adventure. I went from supporting daily operations for all GAI Corporate Systems along with various financial systems for the parent company - American Financial Group to being invited to various c-level meetings. For example, there were times when I was told to be at Lunken Airport and be prepared for a two day acquisition trip. I enjoyed the challenges of understanding the corporate strategies and socializing the strategy with my teams.
In my current role at Ohio National Financial Services, I put together various application roadmaps and strategies to support distribution and compensation systems for Agents. My team was very instrumental in delivering the Oracle Cloud ERP environment. I have also worked on the Architecture Review committee defining ONFS enterprise Architecture. While I find this very rewarding work, it has been extremely frustrating trying to get leadership to support these efforts. I want to be in a position where I can add value based on my strong technical and business abilities. I want to be in a more innovative position.

Many opportunities to learn and grow from great Actuaries with valuable experience. The culture here is in line with a employee focused culture, as they want to ensure competitiveness through providing employees a happy and productive environment.
Overall, a good place to work. However, current dept is more focused on delivering multiple projects versus quality. And people can easily get burnt out with high expectations and spread too thin. Current dept had no formal training.
Downtown, remote work ability, good pay
focus on volume vs quality, little to no formal training

Great place to work, management was always willing to help. Work load would get tough at times, but you could always get through. They have a fitness room for all employees. Exercise classes offered along with spinning classes. This helps break the day up because you could exercise during your lunch break.

The hardest part of the job is adapting to the daily changes and procedures as we are always trying new ways to "make it simple" for customers. This job is forthright in the fact that we come into the office go straight to our desk and start processing. The most enjoyable part of the job is the team builder outings we have every quarter.
