    RGA is a great company, with a very strong financial backing. The Claims Division is full of great personal.

    Pros

    Great training program. You start off training with a member of the company's training team. Once you have accomplished this you are assigned a trainer who works in your division. This person will train you on the day to day aspects of the position.

    Cons

    The amount of work can be challenging. The change into a new imaging system has created a backlog of work that has lead to required overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Consider bringing on more full time employees to help ease the work load on current employees. This will help to lower your employee turnover.

  2. Excellent company to work for, very helpful and friendly people

    Pros

    Great people. Best people I have ever worked with. Some of the top employees i've ever seen. They have an excellent training program and actually want to invest in their employees.

    Cons

    Too much of a cubicle atmosphere. It's great to be able to go to any of your team's areas but at the same time, you feel as though you are cooped up in your corner for the majority of the time.

    Pros

    RGA has been a great company for the most part to work for. There are a lot of opportunities and the benefits are comparable, if not better, than other companies.

    Cons

    At times it can feel like you are a small fish in a big pond.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lots of benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly in classes and meetings for this department. Not able to spend enough time on actual work. Managers could use training. Don't have enough time to manage employees since they are in constant meetings. Currently high turnover of employees due to poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people that help you obtain your goals. Cut out meetings and value your employees. Stop playing favorites. Or else provide another layer of management.

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly. Benefits are good. Salary is a little bit higher than the average in the field. Who is capable may have chance to rotate to other offices.

    Cons

    Turnover rate is too high. Work is tedious and boring.There is a long way to automation of most work when I left.

    Advice to Management

    Try to spend more resource on IT. More automation to operational work.

    Pros

    good benefits, great management and global reach

    Can't think of any right now. I would generally like the financial services sector to have a more fun workplace like google and other tech companies.
