I've heard pretty good things about them. They apparently have a good culture and good WLB. There's a bit of bureaucracy and upper management to deal with, but honestly I prefer those tradeoffs.

IT directors there usually make between $170k-$180k, not sure about in NJ though. Bureaucracy as someone else mentioned is an issue, but somewhat expected imo. Lot of old-school. traditional thinking over there.

Thanks you both. Appreciate your feedback.

I have a friend that works there! He said the wlb is great and he loves his team. Like E1 said above there can be politics but that feels like any place nowadays. Good luck!

Thanks Md1 - insurance companies titles are bit different for sure!

Current employee. The above posts are true. It’s a great place to work but can be annoying with the levels of management. But the salary and work life is hard to beat. Let me know if I can help you in any way or share a referral.

I feel I'm a minority in corporate culture. I came from public school up to Uni years where only few of my peers reached managerial level or even good positions. I reached out to a high schoolmate and saw she got the lowest rank in the company despite 10+ year experience. I have hard time connecting with peers who have a more upscale background. I also feel an imposter since I dont have the stereotype background of a manager --- rich, smart, cool etc. How do I deal with these insecurities?

I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.

While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.
