      + Vision, Values & Covenants help create ethical working environment; not perfect but everyone tries; company feels more values-driven than other companies + colleagues are good people, smart, committed, and want to help + company reputation + long term orientation and not as volatile as publicly traded peers + diverse mix of markets provides some protection against industry-specific down cycles; if you are flexible, mobile, and perform well your job security is better than at companies with fewer sectors + actively engaged executive management + good changes ongoing: innovation & Future Fund, employee survey efforts, diversity & inclusion, transparent is gradually improving + sustainability


      - mobility and being willing to go where the action is = key factor for accelerated career development; not all bad just have to be aware of it before signing up - gaps in diversity & inclusion, but the company is trying to improve on this - work life balance is difficult but that is a challenge industry-wide and company is working on it - difficult market conditions in some sectors are impacting new project awards and salaries; 3-4 years without salary raises for some people but will likely get better when markets improve

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.

      I’m moving on to round 3 of the interview process after speaking with the VP and it’ll be with peers. My position would be Insurance Product Manager so the peers would be internal stakeholders (Sales, Engineering, Underwriting, Actuary, etc.) What kind of questions typically do peer interviews ask?

      I have an interview tomorrow for a position as a Fundraiser Specialist for a company that raises funds for children. Any insight or advice to give? I do not have any experience working in fundraising but have worked in sales and have worked in childcare for several years. Thank you!
