    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Decent starting point - but no career path

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule and work from home

    Conssalary well below industry standards, no room for advancement, does not promote from within

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is so much talent already here but it is constantly overlooked. Managers are brought in from outside the company while the best talent is left unnoticed. Employees leave here and are immediately recognized as top performers by their new employers. You guys are really losing out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No direction - poor values

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Prosgreat pay and benefits. Great location downtown.

    ConsDirection of the business unit was constantly changing. One minute we were taking over another group and the next we were being down sized. Poor communication from upper management. A lot of wasted money, equipment and human resources do to the lack of decision making by management. I saw several "C" level management leave in less than 2 years.

    Feeling Human

    Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are good and hours are flexible. This company values their associates and encourages team building! Even with them leading the market in global reinsurance you still feel like you work for a small and personalized company!

    ConsI'd like to have a bigger emphasis on growing and developing within the company. Preparation to help you get to the next level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to create a fun working environment, treating associates like they matter, their opinions count and they are valuable to your success.
