While it was thoughtful of Mr. Tipsord to offer to answer questions, what do you WISH you could have asked him, with no fear of reprisal?
They got rid of HR except for a group that are dedicated to writing "performance" memos if you screw up....or even when you don't. They have a ridiculous investigation team that "investigate" issues if you man up and call the Ethics hotline....but... read more

It’s been over a year and a half since they came out with the last list of around 12 offices closing through 2021 displacing around 4000 workers. When are the last remaining 10 to 15 non-hub offices going to be announced? All of us in former... read more
60,000 employees and 60,000 agents/agent staff. All of which are powerless with the exception of one. Nowhere else in the fortune 50 is there such a concentration of power. You're all apart of a modern day anomoly. A symbolic board, zero... read more

Listening to the CEO respond to his employees concerns was embarrassing. Employees don’t understand their benefits? Courage over comfort? I really had hope and thought hearing the concerns would generate positive change but they already know the... read more
Just Read this. It’ seems that the company is putting under review its partnership with Weber Shandwick, which has served as SF lead agency for 9 years. I’m curious what we can expect from this review. Can we expect some sort of twist in the... read more

What are things like currently at the Corporate Woods Bank Loan Center / Mortgage Loan Services Operations Center in Earth City, MO (St. Louis) after the 8/31/2018 qualified termination date? Is it a disaster like I suspect? I worked there for years... read more
I just got a letter stating that the farm has had to recalculate overtime due to bonuses (from back when I worked at the farm) and I'll be betting a payment in the next week or two (reported to the IRS for withholding purposes of course) Did they get... read more
I hear a lot of the agents are flunking the required exam. Some agents are getting out of the mutual funds business altogether. What's been your experience? Do they need to bring back field sales support?

Yes, I agree with this phrase. Finding the courage within to leave an abuser vs. finding comfort of being abused.
People that actually work for the company in claims and estimatics know what the acronym is so no need to spell it out. More downsizing in estimatics is on the way.
While reading some Glass Door Reviews online, I saw an interesting post. A person got a CS PIP/MPC position with just a phone interview. SO SAD and FRUSTRATING! There are several CS positions available in the Dallas HUB that are hiring externally. In... read more
I left SF because of point system. Tell me more about it being removed. What replaces it?

I wanted to pose these questions to M.T. via the "Ask the CEO" page, but knew I'd be fired if I had. I have ZERO doubt one of the many MT minions patrol this board, so, (via VPN proxy server because no way do I trust that there wouldn't be... read more
I know nothing big is happening but are stealth layoffs still taking place? Haven't seen many posts on it lately, so I'm hoping for the best.
So according to an email today, Auto ILR is so backed up that Fire ILR is now going to have to file Auto claims, including the new hires in Fire who have never been trained in auto claims. So much for Auto ILR.
