Company reviews
"Perfect for experienced P&C broker looking for an activity after retirement"
Current EmployeeIndependent Representative
As a retired insurance professional working as an independent loss control inspector provides what I saw the best of my business life - interacting with business owners to identify areas where loss exposure exists that may have been missed. As an independent contractor, you have the option to pick and choose what inspections you want to do. The downside is no benefits and you get a 1099 at the end of the year. Not for everyone, but it fills the days for me.

"Great place to work"
Former EmployeeAdministrative Assistant
Everyone was easy to get along with, and the owner is wonderful. It was a great team environment, where co-workers genuinely care about each other and help each other out.

"If you like confusion......"
Former EmployeeLoss Control Consultant
When it comes to having work in your area and a decent fee schedule was somewhat satisfied. My big issue was with the complete lack of consistency in the quality control area. Each reviewer had specific likes and dislikes (hot button issues) based on their training and what carrier they came from. Which is fine if you know which reviewer you are going to get so you can cover their likes and dislikes in the final report. What you ended up doing was writing manuscripts (reports) for the reviewers who where other loss control types and not the final customer, the underwriter. I had calls/emails from underwriters asking why there was so much minutia? Most wanted "Just The Facts", so, consistency would have been nice. Facts don't seem to change, sometimes they are not flowery, but they do give the underwriter a picture of the risk. And after all we have a whole set of Best's guidelines that help find facts. I had heard some great things about the company as I was getting ready to retire after 30+ years in the industry. In my opinion they have just lost focus of the real customers needs which is not other loss control people, it's the underwriters for whom we provide decision support.

"Old fashion forms and pathetic pay"
Former EmployeeLoss Control Consultant
Failed to provide jobs but constantly advertise that work is available. Their reports consist of six forms with redundant information requests and only pay $70 per report with no travel time. So basically they are paying you about $20 an hour for an educated and industry specific expertise. Additionally, this is for NYC work! There is no way you can work for this company and survive. Find any other contractor to work for!
