    Pros

    Nice people to work with, great opportunities to build up your career if you really like the industry. Very motivating bonus.

    Cons

    Pushed too much on sales. Even you are not one of the sales people, they still wanted you to sell some contracts for your "side business"

    Pros

    Center of Financial District, working for one of top companies of China in insurance industry, have a chance to meet with CEO's/ high ranking personnel of other distinct companies,

    Cons

    Inconvenient to go to work (at least an hour travel time especially if living outside the financial district of Beijing), some days may be more brutal than others depending on company plans, was also a new branch in the investment department and was sometimes lacking in direction.

    Advice to Management

    felt much of the grunt work was largely directionless

    Pros

    1. As a market leader, it doesn't face too much severe competition.
    2. The salary is good among domestic insurers.
    3. Highly stable, if this is what you seek for.

    Cons

    1. A lot of employees. It takes long to climb the corporate ladder.
    2. The overall package is not as generous as some global insurers, although the work/life balance is better than competitors on working days.
    3. Since it has the market share at 40%, there is little room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    1. Establish more and generous rotational development programs to let people explore new field every other year.
    2. Explore overseas opportunities more quickly.
