    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Sovereign General Insurance Co. for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros in being overrecuited.

    Cons

    Lost other opportunities as a result of this.

    Advice to Management

    Review resumes thoroughly before recruiting. When looking for someone to mail room like duties - recruit accordingly. When advertising for senior admin staff - the job duties need to be in that category.

      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Sovereign General Insurance Co. full-time

      Pros

      Great company to works considering I worked for three others. Positive interoffice relations between all departments. Compensation that meets industry standards. Great benefits plans. Over all a great place to work at with great and approachable management team.

      Cons

      As mentioned compensation can be a little better, but considering the positive atmosphere and great management this is something I personally do not mind. Less opportunity to move up, but this is strictly due to the size of the company.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing.

      Compagnie en restructuration, Membre du SMT sans expérience de souscription

      Advice to Management

      Faites grandir les employés à l'interne au lieu de juste embaucher à l'externe. Que les membres du SMT aient de l'expérience en assurance/souscrption.
