Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Busy workload is expected in claims. Not enough opportunities for growth it is stated that you would be reviewed for increase yearly. Not true I have been here 3 years no increase and no reason as to why

Good place to learn

I learned so much while working here. The managers are encouraging. They helped me advanced my Excel skills. Benefits & pay are pretty good. Always learning new things.

Insurance Claims is a unique field and not for me.

Pay is pretty good and ability of in office, remote, or hybrid schedule was good. The work load and stress was not worth it to me. Training is not very good and as I mentioned, the work load is way too much. Have heard of from people at other insurance companies that their pending is half of what Kemper runs.

Pros

Pay, hybrid-remote-office choice for working, job security

Cons

Work load, constant system crashes, work load, and did I mention work load

Run

Horrible work environment management acts like they care about your opinion they basically “train” you and avoid asking questions bc they won’t answer them they’ll give you the run around training is 2 weeks and they throw you on the phones and expect you to pass quality control company is garbage

Flexible/rewarding

Kemper has been a good place to work over all. Benefits are decent. Compensation can be good but is very production based and time will tell how new plan will work. Very sales focused. You have a book of business to work with and collect. You get to know them on a personal bases and if you take care of them they will refer people to you. Can be frustrating when people can’t or won’t pay and effects your income. But usually if you keep pressing on things work out ok.

A great place to gain job skills and experience, but...

Kemper has around 7000 employees spread among different business unit in the whole United States, which makes it hard to find the right person if some information across different department is needed. Things became even hard if they ignore and do not response at all. In consequence, a ticket needs to create to make people move to next step. Life Kemper is busy, to meet project deadline, working overtime/weekend is very common here. Projects kept flowing in without a break, and basically everyone was overloaded from what I saw in past 3 years. Right before Thanksgiving 2022, Kemper lay off 300 employees, results more workload on those who still work in Kemper. Since economy impact on auto insurance in 2022, do not expect too many opportunities of promotion or salary increase can be offered.The bright side of Kemper is it is a good place to start your career. There is always opportunity of learning new job skills from people in different projects, which experience can make your resume glittering to recruiters. Speaking from my hear, without these skills learned in Kemper, I can't make the next career move and boost my salary. Overall, Kemper is considerable for those who is trying to build a more colorful resume, but not somewhere people can achieve career goal.

Pros

Learning opportunity.

Cons

workload, promotion became harder due to economy.

Kemper is not a job for a carrer. This is where you work when you can find work any where else. But once you do please leave.

There are no pros here

Good place to work

I actually enjoyed working for Kemper. It’s just the company has made a bad name for themselves in this small area I live in so making sales and meeting the quota was hard for me. The managers wanted me to continuously get customers that already had insurance and add on’s to purchase more products; which I didn’t care for due to the customer hardly affording what they had.

Not Worth it

I was a new agent and only there for a few months. Management was terrible and only focused on top sales. There were people that had been there for years that still struggled to make ends meet not because of lack of discipline or dedication but commission and benefits are not equivalent to the time and energy Kemper requires.

Work life balance and company culture

We truly care about each of our employees. Not just while they are at work. We try to be flexible with all requests and we appreciate everyone's individual talent. No crazy overtime or demands to over exhaust yourself

Serious issues with the senior leadership | Poor Strategies and Poor Execution

This company had such wasted potential, due to poor leadership for top down. It's either poor execution of a rather good strategy (Wrong timing) or just a poor strategy executed. Sometimes both. Ultimately, their poor leadership decisions always have a negative impact on the customer. I was always of the belief that a company exists for and because of its customers. Not at this company.

Pros

Learned about severe the impact poor decisions have on an organization

Cons

Very stressful workplace, poor upper management.

Ok

You ate given a book of business to maintain and upsell. .odt of the job is collecting premuims sometimes in dangerous areas. If a customer does not pay your commission goes down. Nice people in the office

This place is where you go to die

Awful work ethics here. They don’t care about the quality of your work or service, as long as you’re closing enough exposures. This position was so incredibly stressful for me due to the sheer about of work but honestly, management understands that the workload is unmanageable. They just don’t care how you handle your file, as long as you close it quickly and don’t put our insured 100% at fault.

Terrible Infrastructure

Poor infrastructure, tunnel vision, lack of support, poor training and cross training and diminishment of customer and employee value make for constant layoffs, inconsistencies , doi complaints, work overload and finally. Burnout.
