An Insider's view of Corvus Insurance

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Corvus does a great job ensuring everyone across the company feels work-life balance is important and valued. Phil, our CEO, is always advocating for us to take more time off and put our Unlimited Time Off benefit to good use. Being able to take time off without having to feel stressed about taking the time off has been a huge positive.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

From a product management perspective, we’re accountable for making our products smarter by applying findings from new data sources. We make our clients smarter by delivering insights about the complex risks they face. Crows set the bar in smarts among birds, and on the Corvus product management team we pursue the same standard.

Aditya

VP of Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

Corvus has given me the freedom and autonomy to do my best work as well as a collaborative environment to make my ideas heard. With 3 promotions in just under two years, I’m stepping into a management role where I can take the skills I’ve developed as an independent contributor and use them to help my team find success nationally.
