    The most dysfunctional place I've worked.

    I have been working at Reinsurance Group of America

    Pros

    Nice facility (new building) and the company is making money hand-over-fist.

    Cons

    RGA has the most dysfunctional leaders I've seen. I'm not talking about the managers on the ground trying to improve things. I'm speaking strictly about the Directors and VPs that love to see each other fail. They refuse to share the same vision for the future and will fight tooth and nail against ANY changes that "threatens" their power. It's really sad and makes getting things done almost impossible. What should take 6 months will take 4 years, because they'll spend 3 1/2 years arguing and backstabbing. Stay away... I was an IT contractor there for a year and couldn't get away quick enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management really needs to learn how to align to common goals that are for the better of the company, not argue about everything and drag change out as long as possible.

    I worked at Reinsurance Group of America as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't see any Pros.

    Cons

    I was taken into RGA saying that the work would be for 4 yrs with better budget. But I was laid out less than 6 months. Even one of the contractor from other team was told that she has came here on 4 yrs project and was laid out in 2 months. So beware of this company. Don't simply believe that the project lasts for years. Also one of my friend's colleague called me other day to check about this company and surprisingly what I heard from him is He got a project in RGA on a 6 months contract to hire basis and was told him that its a 4 yrs project. I suggested him not to believe the duration since there is no guarantee. FYI - I did my job 100% satisfied and met all my deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    'RGA' Please stop bluffing people. Tell employees that the project is of 3 - 6+ months than saying your golden word i.e. 4 yrs

    Pros

    Good insurance and pension plans.

    Cons

    HR has doubtful practices and ethics. Control freaks, stay away from this company. Also underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Annual evaluation of our managers goes straight to HR department what brings us to retain our truthful thoughts, by fear of losing our jobs. Can't trust HR.
