Strong business that has trouble hiring business leaders

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Individuals get big opportunities all the time. Relatively junior staff can get make or break projects that other companies would demand decades of experience for. Ownership is pretty solid. Versus other insurers, the company is quick to make decisions and still willing to try new stuff without a 3 year delay doing endless powerpoint. On the whole these are positive things that help the business and people grow.

Cons

Recent hires in senior management are questionable - people imported from large corporates who are afraid to make decisions and don't like being asked to do work themselves. Newer business departments (overseas, price comparison) are highly political. Under-performers are not managed out and are paid so well they never volunteer to leave, meaning there is an increasing layer of dead weight in the business.

Advice to Management

Development internal appointees rather than putting faith in external corporate hires who lack the work ethic and interest in the business needed to make us succeed. Focus on results, not politics.

    Pros

    Better hours than most recruitment firms, nice family feel to business, good size - not too big, not too small, CEO knows everyone personally, great people - industry leaders, working with professionals. Don't focus on ridiculous KPIs or give you unachievable targets. Good continuous incentives and free nights out. Lovely modern offices right on the river in the city. Very clear to see constant growth of company.

    Cons

    Can sometimes not be as structured/organised as large companies.

    Advice to Management

    more organisation/consistency would make the workplace near perfect
