The Markel "Style" is dead in many areas of the company. Your upper level managers are Talking Heads and are Blowing Smoke up your... (well, you know). Get out in the departments and TALK TO EMPLOYEES!!!!!

Pay people for working hard. I have been at Markel for 7 years now. I am a policy tech & get great reviews. I couldn't live on my own with this pay if I had to. The pay is horrible & it's barely increased over the years !


Report answer

Give more room for advancement and pay the hard good workers more. I couldn't afford to live on my own if I had to working here after 7 years and I have been a great employee since day one. I do not feel compensated for the hard working employee that I am here. Also positions here are lateral way too much so we can never make more money or advance here.

Question managements decision making at the field level and hold underwriters not producing accountable. Respect is earned, something management needs to understand.
