    I worked at OneBeacon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The finance department has some pleasant people to work with. Management appears to care about helping you develop professionally and be healthy.

    Cons

    The company was going through a lot of changes when I worked there. The pay is low and since they went public they were doing everything possible to bring down their expense ratio, aka laying off a lot of people and taking away a lot of employee benefits. The finance department doesn't have much room for growth. It also had a very political feel to it.

    Decent place, too mired in old-school practices.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Salary competitive.

    Somewhat top-heavy. More managers than workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt faster with the industry.

    OK to work at, but not terribly exciting.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, opportunity to work from home if needed. Benefits are fair.

    Cons

    People work the most insane hours; it is not out of the question to get an e-mail from someone at 6 AM on a Sunday morning. Also, everyone is right on top of one another; claustrophobes beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think there should be more incentive for younger people to work here- current technologies are antiquated, and there is little dynamicism within the company.
