    I worked at Crawford & Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    According to the full timers, there are health benefits but the premiums are very expensive. Nothing else I want to remember. It was a job that I can manage not to put on my resume.

    Cons

    You're treated like a number. There is no future here, if you are interested in Insurance, try to get a job at the actual insurance company, not this outsourced call center. You will learn lots about working in a call center where your number one customer is CRAWFORD, not the person on the phone. Management, all of them have no engagement with their staff unless it is regarding errors or corrections, are not...

    I worked at Crawford & Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Eating food at desk.

    Cons

    Lie to you all the time and promise you different opportunities. Management acts like kings but really are a bunch of uneducated swine who think theyre superior than everyone cause they put years into the company. Work from home promise is false.

    I have been working at Crawford & Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very, very few - steady paycheque?

    Cons

    Its not what you do, it's who you know. Terrible company, supervisors and team leads are not qualified for their roles, different rules for different people.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes, maybe confirm that supervisors are qualified for their roles. Treat people fairly

    I have been working at Crawford & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience for newer professionals to the insurance industry. Co-Workers were awesome Work from home option is available for some. Large Company with room to grow. Free Coffee in the office

    Cons

    Low pay (most adjusters making less than $20/hr) Paying for parking everyday High Stress Environment Poor Front Line Management HUGE disconnect from upper management to lower management Micromanagement is alive and well. Poor office morale

    Advice to Management

    My experience was rife with micromanagement that did not justify staying and building a career with the firm. Company culture needs a boost to encourage employees to stay. Employee morale is low and with wages to match.

    All contract, no benefits. Poor management and no chance for advancement. Expected to work the weekend and after hours as that is when they et the highest volume of work. No raises. High turnover.

    Cons

    Great for students due to the after hour shifts and you can pick as many shifts as you would like. Great people to work with.
