“"I've seen the liberty mutual commercials on tv a lot of times and when my husband and I decided to switch our insurance because we wanted to save money, liberty mutual was the first company that we looked into because of their promise of better plans and lower costs.
They responded so quickly to my initial inquiry that I didn't even get a chance to let my husband know that I had requested a quote. They very quickly double checked our information to make sure it was all correct and were very clear and concise about what they could offer. Probably the easiest insurance company to switch to for auto insurance (or probably any insurance).
Every time since that I've called for a information they've responded very quickly and polite. Wonderful customer service that I didn't think was possible from an insurance company!"
"The price is definitely at a premium but their replacement coverage is good and when we filed a claim they responded with very prompt back and forth and are very quick to check everything with no negativity. They covered exactly what they said they would and I have no problems with the company."”
“It's a pretty standard interview process. There's an online assessment after your application. A few days later you'll get an email to set up a phone interview. If you're succesful in the phone interview they'll set you up with a face to face interview where you'll meet a few different people on the team as well as a hiring manager.”
“Recently there has been a significant amount of turnover so there are a lot of opportunities to move up in the company. Because we're such a large company though you have to make yourself known, which usually means playing the politics game and talking to the right people. People who are friendly with the manager are much more likely than those who only work hard, so make sure you put work in on both sides.”
“Liberty Mutual has a really strong benefits package, I would be shocked if it wasn't considering they're an insurance company. Better than average medical, dental, and vision insurance. RSP & Savings contributions. Lots of sick days and PTO. Flexible work time and often you're able to take fridays off.”
“"Recently there has been a lot of problems with office morale, especially in the areas where the layoffs happened the most at, so there are definitely some angry people writing reviews on glassdoor and indeed. The core thing I attribute to the environment is the people I work with, and the people I work with are hard working, smart, and kind.
This doesn't mean that it's the best environment I've been a part of. Top management has been implementing a lot of organizational redesigns year over year that, as an office employee, truly just dont make sense. There's a general feeling that leadership is clueless and out of touch, which can make it difficult to motivate yourself to work for the company.
In this chaotic time there's also a lot of general office politics that are starting to thrive. Flaring egos from middle-management who haven't been laid off and feel untouchable. Many look down on the smallest mistakes and create an environment where people are afraid to offer advice or recommend changes.
The people you work with on a day-to-day basis are really great, but it often feels like management doesn't understand what's going on which definitely doesn't help the morale."”
Favorite part of Liberty Mutual is probably the people that I get to work with on a daily basis. Lots of really professional, hard working, and generally nice people who are comitted to the company and their team. There have been quite a few layoffs recently with the restructuring but we've stayed together throughout and morale is still pretty strong considering.
If you're looking to get into the insurance business Liberty Mutual is a great place to start and grow your career. I joined right after university even though I had no experience in insurance. They gave me a really strong training program, onboarding wasn't too intense and I was able to ramp up to a point where I was comfortable, and there are lots of opportunities to try new things and keep learning.
Honestly the biggest misconception about the technology at Liberty Mutual is that because we're an insurance company, our technology is outdated and the engineering jobs are boring. Liberty Mutual is actually constantly pushing to innovate, building microservices and using the latest technology in an agile approach to bring a sophisticated and technology driven approach to insurance.
“"Liberty Mutual is definitely a sales driven organization even though they preach that their on the forefront of innovation. This means that the majority of the quotas are sales related, and these quotas are very aggressive as their the backbone of the business. It's not an easy job, especially in recent times.
The positives of working for LMI in sales is that the packages you sell are generally some of the better ones in terms of coverage in the industry. In general they also provide quite a few good leads and have a warm funnel that gives you lots of opportunities to close.
The negatives are especially apparent now because with LMI laying off so many people they still want to keep their high revenues, and are now pushing higher and higher quotas without giving over time. For some reason they expect that we can finish our work in a 40 hour week, when most of us are working 50-60 + hours a week to hit our goals.
Overall it's probably not the best time to be joining LMI because of the recent changes, but in the past I found it to be one of the better insurance companies to work for with lots of opportunities for comission and growth."”

Liberty Mutual was founded in 1912 under the name the Massachusetts Employees Insurance Association (MEIA), right after the state of Massachusetts had passed a law requiring employers to protect their employees with workers compensation insurance. In 1917 the company had started partnering with other companies and offering full-coverage auto policies, and changed its name to Liberty Mutual Insurance Company later that year.
From the 20s to the 60s Liberty Mutual Insurance continued to grow through offering full coverage auto insurance. In 1964 they began offering life insurance through a branch named the Liberty Life Assurance Branch. From 1964 to the 2000's Liberty Mutual continued to expand its marketshare in Life and Auto insurance.
From its strong growth Liberty Mutual was in a strong financial position and able to grow through acquisitions to diversify its portfolio and expand their marketshare. One of the larger acquisitions completed by the company was the purchase of Safeco at $68.25 per share for a total price of over $6 billion. This acquisition helped grow Liberty Mutuals revenues from $6 billion anually to over $30 billion in twelve years.
