I worked at ACE Group

Pros

Large company so good opportunity for progression. Good offices in London and work life balance not too bad so hard work encouraged.

Cons

Some structural changes in the last year or so have lead to some challenges but will probably settle down once kinks have been ironed out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Standardise globally. There seem to be a lot of teams doing their own thing throughout the organisation when advantages could be gained with synergies.

    I have been working at ACE Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are experienced, you may be able to land a good starting base salary. Extremely nice people.

    Cons

    Company has no commitment to flexibility. Indeed some groups have leadership that is wise enough to realize this increasing trend, due to how much available research shows the benefits companies yield.
    Until Ace has a major C level regime change, the company will not be considered for inclusion within a Fortune 100 top employer list, Business Week Top 100, etc.

    IT infrastructure strategy & internal applications integration is embarrassing. Seemingly everything is outsourced as if the company was a start-up....but of course it is not.

    Poor implementation of PeopleSoft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) The CEO needs to stop cutting IT budget so Ace can get away from using so many outsourced services, ASAP.
    2) Utilize research from reputable sources and implement a company wide commitment to workplace flexibility.
    3) If the open work space concept is not considered a mistake on the 10th floor of 510, then you must commit to changing all floors within both Philly buildings....otherwise, it is not fair for those on the 10th floor of 510 to not have assigned seats and have to deal with the added frustration that comes with the increased volume pretty much everything that takes place on the floor.

    Ace has strong potential to be an excellent employer for ALL employees, not just those in certain departments lucky enough to have strong leadership. Your insurance people and SME are not the entirety of the company, consider everyone....
