    Pros

    There are great people working very very hard in the IT organization.

    Cons

    IT leadership does not care about the people. The company has a program to keep good talent but IT does not follow it.

    Advice to Management

    Quit focusing on increasing profits. You could spend a fraction of those profits to improve engagement and improve the IT infrastructure which would benefit all.

    Pros

    Senior management slow to change. Great environment to learn as much as possible about insurance/reinsurance industry and the convergence of capital markets into the space.

    Cons

    Very political, not much in the way of vacation/personal days, and could do better with little perks/benefits. Coffee is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees who outperform their peers and take on more responsibility. Get rid of the deadwood lying around and hire people who will perform.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to move up. Benefits were good

    Cons

    It was difficult to get time off because my team had traditional enrollment periods, as well as off cycle enrollments.

  7. Many opportunities with many roles. Offices everywhere if you need to move

    Pros

    Manager is great. HUGE company so it seems you are working on an island at times. I was able to keep my job and work from another office when my family moved... that flexibility is priceless

    Cons

    You have to be your own advocate. Easy to get lost in the gears. Reach out to contacts to network. Raises are minimal so you need to sell yourself and prove value. Normal major corporate complaints abound.

    Advice to Management

    Act on the desire to keep talent instead of just talking about it. Balance better the rewards to shareholders and employees.

  8. Good company and multicultural place to start off

    Everyone focused on their tasks at hand - not always looking at big picture

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for personal growth and the company values (even if not fully acted upon) lead to employee engagement and a desire to stay.

    Cons

    Overall, it is broker company mindset where margins are key. If you're in another group, investment or compensation to your group is likely to be secondary as other groups may be viewed favorably. Technology systems while improving, have serious gaps. Bonus funding is poor. Outdated real estate. Replaced bad coffee delivery with even worse coffee.

    Advice to Management

    Margin growth isn't everything: consider investing in employee satisfaction.
