    I have been working at QBE

    Pros

    Culture is good, not much in the way of politics or other in-fighting you might find at other companies. Opportunities exist for growth.

    Cons

    Business transformation can be difficult at times. Senior leadership changes cause delays and hold ups. Resource limitations can also be challenging at times.

    Former Contractor - Temporary Claims Systems Associate in Sun Prairie, WI

    I worked at QBE as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyable coworkers
    Potential for growth within company.
    Standard work week was 37.5 hours
    Nice campus
    Pretty relaxed atmosphere. Often could wear jeans on Fridays.

    Cons

    Slow to change due to large size of company
    Project had multiple delays that could have been prevented with more realistic deadlines or better interdepartmental communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager always seemed too busy. Better communication between different departments could have prevented problems that occurred with project.

    I have been working at QBE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, work hours, location all good. Good opportunities for advancement, family friendly environment, great managers and supervisors. Relaxed attire.

    Cons

    Computer systems are new but the platform is horrible, I have to come in 15 minutes early each day just to log into all of the different systems we use. While this issue is being taken care of at some point in the future it's taking a long time to resolve. Some jobs are being outsourced or outplaced and my particular department has not yet been notified of changes which makes it kind of hard on us.

    I have been working at QBE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High change-oriented and fast paced management environment. Compared to other industries, QBE offers a challenging, risk-tolerant and demanding workplace. In general, there is a high degree of flexibility to do work anywhere and at anytime; especially outside of the standard M-F 8-5 structure. Compensation is generally comparable to market for most positions.

    Cons

    Like any company, there is a mix of good and poor leaders. Currently, there is significant turnover. The company is led by executives who struggle to maintain consistent direction, attention and priorities. The Company does not value employees and needs to weed out the dead weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing at this time.
