    Insurance company that doesn't outsource

    Please no politics, I'd like to find a quality insurance company that does not outsource overseas, a small step I'd like to take. I figure I'm safe moving my banking from Bank of America to a credit union or local bank? Dish Network/DirecTv is probably not solvable other than going to *gulp* mediacom.

    I would like to do what I can, I understand there are things you can't purchase that don't meet this criteria.

    Any suggestions for WDM?

    Re: Insurance company that doesn't outsource

    I use Liberty Mutual. No local offices, at least none I'm aware of. Fortunately, I've never had to deal with them beyond premiums and coverages - no claims.

    But everyone I've talked to seems to be state-side.

    Unlike Dell. Whoof! I was on the phone for about 80 minutes a week or two ago - and spoke with half of India.

    Yeah, I've had the same experience with dell and had a head-vs-wall experience with Dish Network.

    My husband works for Liberty Mutual and they do not outsource anything overseas for their American operations.

    No, nothing. They do operate internationally, however unlike most companies they don't even outsource IT overseas.

    I'm pretty sure Farm Bureau doesn't outsource. Local, WDM company with offices all over the midwest.

    Do you know if they do with IT, accounting, finance at all? I do have an account there, just haven't used it much.

    Re: Insurance company that doesn't outsource

    Sounds like a couple of places at least to check out for insurance, I should hope so given Des Moines' status in insurance, haha

    Re: Insurance company that doesn't outsource

    I don't think State Farm outsources. They have been fantastic to me. Very good to a long term account. I have bought a pickup and motorcycle in the last year and no one touched their quote.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I used to have them and didn't have any issues, but I think they do quite a bit of outsourcing

    State Farm terminates deal with Indian company involved in scandal
