"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.
