"I have worked at West Bend Mutual Insurance for almost 8 years and have found my time there to be an overall positive experience. They provide an outstanding workplace environment and my co-workers are always very pleasant. The only downfall I would say is that there is little to no opportunity for advancement."
"Worked here for 6 years and at first it was awesome, but not w/ change in Execs."
What do you like about working at West Bend Mutual Insurance?
"Proximity to home. The overall community's vision of the organization is a benefit."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Overall, it's a good company to work for in any department except IT"
What don't you like about working at West Bend Mutual Insurance?
"Executive management does not understand what it takes to get the job done. They take the IT staff for granted and belittle their involvement in the bottom line of the organization. The idea of 'getting more done with less (staff)' is really getting tiring. Hiring 40+ consultants in IT instead of looking for full-time qualified IT staff to do the same work."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"To spend a week or a day in some of the employees shoes -- those that actually do the work that results in the bottom lines you like to report and reap the benefits for. Realize that all of the staff, not just select few exist and do have lives outside of the company; just like they do."
