We're going thru a storm because our employees
aren't strong and that's the basis for a successful
company. We have a huge turnover rate and I've never seen
the moral so low in the long term employees. I know
this is a problem with many business', though, due to
the unemployment rate. I have seen it getting better
in the past month though. Let's hope that trend
Thanks for the responses. I knew there were good
people out there somewhere that love this company as
much as I do. Gal2, I think part of the problem is the
supervisors attitude. These adjusters are only in training
for 6 weeks and then have a high pending within 6
months. A supervisor HAS to help them along for awhile. I
mail out checks, match mail for adjusters, set
inspections, GLADLY handle calls that can't get through to
adjusters and in return I've had 5 excellent employees that
have been with me for a year and all had high audits.
Let's hope the company can withstand this storm and
remain strong in the industry.
Yes! Stop being so negative about the company.
You must be aware that management is working hard to
hire more people. You are in Orange County and the
unemployeement rate is very low. Think about the population that
the company has to select from at this time. It is
not all about money. It is also about a person's
future. Look around you. Who has been promoted to upper
management? Former supervisors and managers that have worked
hard for the company and for themselves and their
families. MCY is growing and it will have the pains that
come from growth. You ( as a person that will grow
with the company) need to be part of the solution.
Place you energy in building up that good company (by
the way, companies are companies only because of the
company of people).
It is a rough business. But
MCY has been well managed and has one of the BEST
claims departments in the business. You sound like a
bright person, make your good suggestions to management.
Don't ask them questions, give them your take on the
solution. I will bet that they will listen and view you as
an important asset (so will the people that work for

Well I've sat here for the past few months
reading all these negative remarks about my company and
wonder when is someone going to make some suggestions to
help. I've worked for 3 different insurance companies
in my life time and Mercury is by far the best in
all aspects. I would like to keep it that way.
can only speak for the claims dept. but we are having
some tough problems trying to keep the moral of our
employees up as well as keep the strongest ones employed
with Mercury. My workers are getting over 60 new files
a month, 20 more than the norm. Customer service
has to be our main concern at this time, not getting
new business. Any helpful hints?
mcyguy (bye-the-bye; with your negative comments,
the use of the name "mcyguy" is an insult to the good
people that founded and run the company! Might I
The wisdom comes from
knowing when one is interested only in rumor and not
sharing important information relative to the future of a
company/stock. A subtle way to start a rumor, when one is
attempting to affect the less well informed, is to ask a
pointed question in an effort to make others "think" you
have information they do not have. That appears to
have been exactly what was done; but, you may not have
the experience to know about such
Sorry you did not get your raise, according to one of
your last postings. Folks who whine about money stay
"happy" for a week or two after getting a bit. Say, did
only folks below manager get the salary

employees and ex-employees he is a breath of freah
You don't know what you will get on these boards
unless you ask. No harm in trolling for M&A info.
Is this a message board that deals in relevant
information concerning MCY? Or, is it just a space for idle
and useless speculation? So far, all I seem to read
here is speculation that provides no insight into MCY.
Perhaps we could upgrade the quality of the input posted
to this message board, which, in turn, would make
this a far more useful site for people who want to
gain some valuable insight into MCY.
