No Christmas bonus? Who cares it wasn't that much anyway. Decreased 401k match? Why are you people working at such a chit hole. That place is such a joke and so is your head leader. Any place else has to have better benefits and pay!
How many times do they have to tell you it is a HOLIDAY GIFT not a christmas bonus.I guess you pissed Doug off so bad that he decided to get rid of it instead of letting you call it the wrong nme. FYI - The "gift" for employees has not increased since approx. 1970 when it was actually a decent amount. In the meantime the officers's bonuses and benefits have increased many times over. Don't forget the bonuses are based on the accomplishments of the people working for the exec who are now getting nothing.

Unionize now and open the books. Then everyone will know why top people are being let go. Because collectively they have the knowledge of what has been done to a once great company. Any one of you willing to regain your dignity we can show you how to do it. We have lawyers who can reduce the Three Stooges to rubble.
Be strong stick together. SOLIDARITY FOREVER.....

Watch out mother mutual. The management team is infected with this disease. Mangement likes passing it to employees. If you are a new employee, beware.

Getting ready to go to the Ivory Tower now. Already with the knots in the stomach. Phoney smiles, backstabbing. How I hate it.

I have been doing this for to long. Can wait to retire. Even if doug retires or moves to the side, it won't change. Brian l and rich c are also a bunch of buffoons. To bad life cant be simpler. I also want to apologize to some of my colleagues who have been pushed out or terminated on technicalities.
Bad Shape

I have heard the claims department is in such bad shape right now that people or openly looking for new jobs elsewhere. Even openly talking about it in the office in front of managers and that people are putting in notices left and right. Apparently they closed a few claims offices and also let a bunch of people go without ever finding replacements for them and they are just dumping all the extra work on whoever is left. Also no merit increases for claims employees and even the supervisors in claims have been told they will get no merit increases. Managers of course are all still in line for their inflated bonuses.

I work in the service department. I don't make a ton of money and it is only my second job in life. Just for the record, I will not be making Utica my life long dream for a career path. I have seen people mistreated, the company does not appreciate the long term employees, and management is a circus act. With that being said, I will be giving my two week notice shortly.
Claims in downtown

Schenectady, NY

#445 Mar 5, 2014
Claims is the worst of all the departments. Close friend works over in that downtown office & fills me in with all the dirt. Employees are crying at their desk almost daily. One women had to go on medical leave because of the stress and when she came back they had changed all her job duties to make things more difficult and basically said deal with it or get out. The hand picked so called manager of that office is never there. I guess she takes vacations every other week and then gives all the people who work for her a hard time if they ask for time off. Even the supervisors working over there have been interviewing for other jobs. Hard to believe things could get so bad. Really disappointing to see.

I really was trying save my self for the bathroom near the 1st floor in the front of the building but could not. I wanted to destroy the plumbing there so the third floor would get a whiff of my stench. Unfortunately, the security desk took the blunt of it. Sorry about that. I really had good intentions....

If things are this bad, go straight to Dougie. He claims he will listen to all legitimate complaints.
