My experience at OneBeacon was satisfactory. The offices were clean and safe. The people were friendly. A gym is provided on-site which is a nice perk.

AVP & Assistant Treasurer (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNMay 22, 2018
Overall - Not a bad company but work life balance can be a little challenging and the health benefits are not that great. Good place to work if you like autonomy.

Company part of a larger group.

Company is part of a large financial group with considerable diversity. Work-life balance is not a priority with the company, and standards for salary and advancement are not adhered to.

Diverse parent company with a large book of business

Atmosphere of unsureness.

Downsized, not sure they are still in existance

They continuously downsized while I was there, creating a horrible culture. The location was isolated in an industrial park, nothing in walking distance.

Exceptional peers / good company
Statistical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAFebruary 17, 2017
I worked with a great group of people albeit only briefly. I only left for economical reasons. They were downsizing and it was clear based on the monthly layoffs that it was a question of finding another job on my own, or wait to be let go (everyone else had been there 25+ years and I was the most recently hired). I otherwise would have been happy to stay. The pay was fair, the environment was pleasant. No complaints.
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
They were downsizing

Poor Management
Underwriter (Former Employee) –  Farmington, CTSeptember 11, 2016
Management consists of individuals that other companies either wanted to get rid of or already did. They do not support their employees & are only concerned about controlling expenses. Favoritism is out of control and the work environment is horrible.
Pros
Fellow workers are very nice people
Cons
Management is the worst
