Pros

Great people and opportunities to advance exist if you work hard and can demonstrate to management that you bring something valuable to the table.

Cons

Unless you are getting promoted or working in a very profitable department there is the potential and the probability that your compensation will not be satisfactory.

    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.

    Endless hard work, murky compensation practices

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
