"One of the benefits I value at Great American is the focus on professional development. We are encouraged to continue our education by completing professional certifications each year."

As an internal wholesaler in the Annuity Group, I work with a talented and supportive team. While we each have individual goals, the friendly, open work environment makes it easier for all of us to meet those goals because we learn so much from one another.

When I joined the company two years ago, I was surprised by how many employees have been here for decades. At most companies, the sales team is like a revolving door, but my co-workers have stayed longer than anywhere else I’ve worked. It is a testament to how Great American promotes a healthy work-life balance and provides benefits employees value.

One of the benefits I value at Great American is the focus on professional development. We are encouraged to continue our education by completing professional certifications each year. I’m grateful that the company invests in our development with the Education Reimbursement Program. Not only does it make us more knowledgeable, it also helps us develop our career path and provides us financial incentives along the way.

Great American is also committed to our physical and financial well-being. VitalityTM, the company wellness program, offers annual health screenings and Vitality Points that employees can earn from daily physical activities. The program is a great incentive to stay physically active while also being rewarded. The profit-sharing program is also great, especially when we hit our business goals. It confirms how we contribute to the company’s success.

"Great American provides employees with opportunities to find passion in their work as well as in their lives outside of work. We are encouraged to be proactive with our health and obtain annual physicals, learn more about nutrition, and become more active. Before joining the Company, I lost 130 pounds and the incentives offered by our wellness program have helped me to maintain my weight and stay active."

I enjoy coming to work at Great American every day because I know I’m contributing to the success of a company that has a vested interest in my future, both professionally and personally.

I started working for the Company as an Associate Underwriter over a year ago and have had the opportunity to experience many different aspects of the surety industry. These experiences include meeting with various agents and contractors and attending seminars with other industry professionals. I’ve also been encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and take initiative to build my confidence as an underwriter, while knowing that I have the support and guidance of management.

Great American provides employees with opportunities to find passion in their work as well as in their lives outside of work. The Company encourages us to achieve work-life balance by offering paid time off to take care of our bodies, our minds, and our families. We are also encouraged to be proactive with our health and obtain annual physicals, learn more about nutrition, and become more active. My office in particular has begun a weekly competition with our step-tracking devices to see who can be the most active and obtain the most steps throughout the week. We not only are incentivized by the program itself, but we can also encourage each other because we all have access to the same tools and benefits. Before joining Great American, I lost 130 pounds and the incentives offered by our wellness program have helped me to maintain my weight and stay active.

I am grateful to be surrounded by great resources within the Bond Division as well as company-wide. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a wonderful team and company.

"One of the guiding principles our Company operates by is “We always do the right thing!” I think it is important to work for a company that embraces such a value when dealing with employees and customers. It demonstrates the Company holds itself to a high standard of conduct."

I am lucky to be able to say that I love what I do and the people I get to work with every day. One of my favorite things about working here is the growth potential and opportunities for advancement I have experienced. The management staff has always taken the time to empower and develop me every step of my career. One example is being chosen by our Vice President of Claims to speak at the WCI Convention held at the Orlando World Center Marriott last year. It was a marvelous learning experience and really made me step out of my comfort zone to speak in front of a large audience. I greatly appreciate the opportunities I have been given.
