Pros

Great colleagues, very collegial environment, lots of autonomy and the ability to grow your own area of business with lots of support... Assuming you demonstrate that you have a deep understanding of risk management.

Cons

The standards for success aren't always very explicit, client circumstances can change quickly with a big win or big loss. You must be willing and able to work in an environment without a ton of structure or oversight.

Advice to Management

Stabilize internal infrastructure. Some of the review, staff location processes and other internal support infrastructure are in flux, which leads to some frustration.

    Pros

    I work from home nearly every day and have total autonomy. Pay is OK, not great. Strong commitment to core values.

    Cons

    Communication from the top-down is not always made a priority (within admin teams). If you end up on a good team, it's a fantastic company to work for, but if you don't it can be miserable. Cliques and favoritism is present within my team--may not be the case across the firm.

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are very generous. The culture is extremely professional for the most part but at times can come off as being snobbish.

    Cons

    The way employees are rated is called an "Assessment" which is normally done annually. The problem with this process is that they use a "360" degree method of gathering information about the employee. The employee has to provide a self-assessment along with the names of customers and company mates as potential interviewees. Sometimes employees that don't get along will use your assessment to get back at you by providing less than flattering feedback. However, if the rater that is writing the assessment is good he or she should be able to gauge the type of person that they are reviewing based on all the feedback gathered.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to stick up for your team members from time to time and try not to be such corporate drones......it's really a turn off and all you guys do is distance yourself from your employees.
