Pros

Exposure to some of the most well known companies in the world and their senior management. Never dull and never a shortage of work to accomplish. You learn how to manage numerous personality types and get diverse exposure to industry sectors.

Cons

Compensation is inconsistent. McKinsey management style- squeeze the life out of your people, then pay them below-market at bonus time. Long standing tradition of turnover at all ranks thanks to greener pastures and the promise of less bs somewhere else. It's too bad because for the small savings management gets as a result of screwing their employees, the risk of losing business when top-flight talent leaves never gets through to them. Greg Case makes $16 large though so at least someone is getting paid.

Advice to Management

Stop nickel and diming and pay your associates what they deserve. Revolving doors belong on the front of your building, not at every seat on every floor in every department.

    Pros

    Good place for growth and a great place to learn the reinsurance industry. There are also great opportunities to work in other offices around the world if you seek out the opportunity.

    Cons

    The bonus structure is heavily focused around revenue producing positions.


  2. It was great for a few years, then...

    Pros

    Wonderful, knowledgeable colleagues who are very generous with their time and support.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion or career guidance unless you're linked closely to those in the upper level cliques. Lack of cohesion between IT systems leading to duplication of information input

    Advice to Management

    Need to divest themselves of all the people who were brought in at senior levels because they were friends of another senior level executive. It is well known they have not contributed anything to the improvement of the bottom line (or to anything else), in fact it is only worsened. The problem is they've all been promoted again. The tone of the company has changed irrevocably from a very open inclusive communicative (profitable) one, to one now run by politicos with an style imported from another international competitior. (Not unnoticed given the company they came from) Unfortunately with the recent review, a number of excellent people have been/will be lost, and probably more will follow because of the very unrealistic workloads that will be encountered by those left.
