    Great culture, solid training, awesome people, competitive salaries, lots of responsibility

    Senior Underwriter (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsAs an Underwriter:
    -Lots of responsibility from day 1
    -competitive pay and good bonus potential
    -great people; I no longer work there but have many close friends still with the company
    -fantastic training relative to competition

    Cons-Difficult to move upward;
    -limited global opportunities

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus more on non-underwriting, value-add opportunities like integrating all IT systems onto one platform;
    take more admin duties off of underwriters' hands and push to other groups. Underwriters should spend as much time as possible with high-level account management and with business development.

    Overall a good learning experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSolid Financial Company
    Supervisors and Local Managers are fair and treat employees well. Their knowledge of the business is excellent and they are willing to teach anyone who is willing to learn.

    ConsLack of direction and communication between Senior Managers in Home office and local Senior Manager.
    Reporting structure excludes those with technical knowledge.
    Work load is at a all time high. Due to lack of resources Supervisors and Managers are pulled from core responsibilities to focus on projects and areas that should be managed by others.
    Salary is behind market

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in technology to free up employees to execute their core responsibilities. Supervisors and Managers spend too much time running reports and filling out spreadsheets. Give staff real time information on performance.
