    Making a difference

    Data Analyst (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsExcellent tools available for servicing your clients needs. Team oriented and solutions driven.

    ConsLarge broker. Unnecessary fees for small clients. Difficult to cater/service non-standard clients due to company standards and regulations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe flexible to allow better servicing of large and non-standard clients. Example - Having to use the certificate center to process COI's doesn't always make sense for every client. It can be more efficient to use the account service team to process the certs.

    Greatest Company I've Ever Worked For!

    Intelligence Officer (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsComplete support of management who support thinking outside the box. Access to top executives who listen. Global teamwork is incredible. We have practice leaders who are recognized experts in their field and they are not siloed like our competitors. If we need the advice of a Captive expert in Dublin, he or she is flown in at no cost to the local office. With a presence in over 100 countries, each Network Country Manager will answer any question instantly. This company stands alone in it's atitude toward its employees and its global teamwork.

    ConsNone. Healthcare package could stand tweaking but that's typical of any large company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!
