    senior management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsFlexible employer who is fair but demands their pound of flesh. Good staff relations and excellent benefits.

    ConsIt can be very political at senior levels and is a lot more ruthless at these levels. Heavily regulated which can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Senior Managementremove some of the politics. Encourage people to do the best for the company not what is just right for them.

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

    A great place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI'm talking from the agent's perspective so emplyed staffs, sorry. Good communication between the top management and the employee especially the agency force. Takes feedbacks seriously and the processing of the paper works andclaims are efficient too, though sometimes there are cocks up but a few bugging on the phone will get it done in no time.

    ConsAgent's perspective: Sell or you eat peanuts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAgent perspective as usual, should have general insurance products lineups and a basic pay as other companies are poaching away agents with attractive basic + comms packages.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
