    Avantages

    Awesome and hard working people, that don’t forget to have fun together.

    Inconvénients

    Sonnet is trying to figure out its way. Things change constantly, so if you’re looking for a pre defined role and predictable processes, Sonnet will be more challenging for you.

    Conseils à la direction

    System problems happen way too frequent. Invest on a more stable platform

    Point de vue négatif
    Désapprouve le PDG

    Je travaille chez Economical Insurance à plein temps

    Avantages

    My coworkers are the best reason to work here but that won't last long if Economical continues to run the way it's running. Most of the people I know are looking elsewhere where they will actually be valued and treated well as employees - monetarily and emotionally.

    Inconvénients

    The executives don't actually care about what's going on in the offices. They show up for annual meetings and that's it. No rewards for good workers, and they ignore poor performance by other workers just so they can keep numbers steady. Head office and executives continue to enjoy and celebrate holidays while their front line people (claims staff) are treated like assembly line workers with no rewards.
    -The only rewards the top performers get is more work that they cant trust the poor performers to do. But the poor performers continue to be paid the same.
    -Team leaders are not on the same page as each other or the same page as upper management. Things are not communicated down to staff.
    -Team leaders are not equipped with mental health training when their staff is clearly struggling. As long as we are producing numbers, they are happy, regardless of if we are struggling mentally.
    -No flexibility in hours or options to work from home.
    -No room to move up unless you have family working in head office or elsewhere in the company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Learn to value your employees and actually show it. Especially the employees who are dealing directly with customers. If the company is struggling financially, stop punishing the workers by not giving adequate raises and bonuses. If you want to keep staff, pay them like competing insurance companies pay their staff. Train your team leaders to support staff who are mentally struggling. Maintain consistency amongst the team leaders so that all teams are given the same training and opportunities. Recognize when team leaders are passing their own work on to their staff. Recognize when team leaders expect their top performers to clean up after poor performers who continue to stay employed at the company.

    Avantages

    Likeable colleagues who support each other

    Inconvénients

    Toxic leadership (especially from execs & senior leadership), unrealistic workloads, archaic technology that consistently fails, not at all agile

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop being so political and rewarding bad behaviour; if you truly want to live by our culture of work-life balance, you need to appreciate high performers rather than punishing them with more work under unrealistic timelines. We can all see your hypocrisy when you preach our core values to the rank & file, yet engage in toxic, political behaviour yourselves. You have completely lost our respect, and any credibility you had has gone out the window.
