    A great place to work. Plenty of diversity.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsGreat leaders who get the best out of people, a focus on getting the culture right.

    ConsNot much movement at the top so advancement opportunities are rare, and often filled by sideways moves by people whose skills are sometimes not appropriate for them

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very positive, great people. Not a lot of opportunity for non-managers

    Senior Analyst/Programmer (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsCollegiate culture, good remuneration & benefits, very secure. Excellent work-life balance, very family friendly.

    ConsOnly career path is into people management, not much technical leadership. Frequent restructures. One-way communication. You need to have a good relationship with your direct manager, and also that manager needs to be very effective when it comes to negotiation with their superiors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild first before restructure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not a bad place to work

    Claim Advisor (Current Employee) Christchurch (New Zealand)

    Great place to work

    Programmer (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsLots of different opportunities in technology

    ConsIt's a big company and I suppose IT is still seen as a cost centre by a lot of older folks in the company. In reality, if it wasn't for IT, there wouldn't be a company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve your technologists in more decisions, don't dictate to them.

    Heading in a positive direction

    Business Partner (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsI work with some smart, driven yet down to earth people. IAG genuinely cares about their employees and balances business and people strategy well. There's a clear focus on customer, community and delivering great products. Further, leadership is working hard to develop a culture that the organisation needs for sustained success.

    ConsThere could be better greater focus on innovation - As insurance is fast becoming a commodity, how IAG separates itself form it's competitors while everyone else compete on price and no frills offerings is key.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinued focus on creating a culture of accountability and innovation

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetain company morale

    Satisfied

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsGood people, diverse backgrounds, staff very customer focused.

    ConsExec could improve communication and accountability for poor performers. Tends to be overly managed top- heavy and process driven over results

    Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the Floor and get a better understanding of what customers want
