The system being piloted in Illinois is by an outside vendor. It is starting with auto and will eventually also quote/issue auto and business policies in the agent office. It will also be real time, meaning the agent office makes the change on their side and the policy/system has immediate updates. It will also have the availability to issue dec page, policies, and other auto/fire business stuff in the future. The plan is to role out to other states if all goes well in Illinois. If you read the writing on the wall fewer people will be needed in the hubs to review or make changes to the policies. This was the long term plan to have this type of system and then SF will need fewer people. SF is years behind the competition in this regard. How ironic to have all those system people over the years and SF needing to go outside SF to get this programming. The company that is running the show on the program has done the same type of work for other insurance companies.
Update PC MODERNIZATION, has the green light with about a year before it implements. People who r tied to old ways think it will be forever but Soooo far from the truth. This is not a systems project it is off shelf vendor based. Biz lines are already piloting in Illinois. Underwriting both fire and auto personal lines will be cannibalized by this change simply because much less human interference is needed. I think it's pretty clear SF WANTS FEWER MGs and tenured pro/tech period.
Yes. For sure on the non compete. Why would anyone share? Unless they want to stay no another carrier
R u sure about the non-compete? If true, that would me new for SF.
Don’t want you working for a competitor sharing trade secrets. Industry standard nowadays.
Offer to claim management:
Attempt to compete for lower management job... ie TM. (No openings) and then lose voluntary severance
Voluntary severance requires signing off rift to sue and a no compete clause
Help me understand why a non compete clause
The company web page outlines specifics for severance. It’s something like 1 week of pay for every year worked up to 15 years and a week and a half of pay for every year over 15 years.
I don't have severance info off the top of my head, but I believe others have said that the HR manual has the details of both voluntary and involuntary severance and that in most cases the offers have been in line with those descriptions.
I received involuntary. For me, that amounted to:
1) 1 week's salary for each year within the first 10
2) 2 week's salary for each year worked greater than 10
Of course, they also cash out your PTO and legacy PTO.
Voluntary severance is higher.
