Pros

(Canada Branch) Small company with very high employee interaction with experienced senior management. Taking on responsibilities is encouraged and good employees are rewarded. Career advancement is not limited. Work life balance is respected. As a small company they won't be able to offer some of the most flexible benefits out there, but this is definitely made up in the way they treat employees, allow time off for personal days, allow time off for emergencies, etc. Because the company is not shareholder driven, most of the pressures are not present as you would find with many larger organizations. As it is a small company, you get a very wide range of experience. As a specialist insurer, you understand your products and business very well in a short period of time. Honesty and integrity are at the fore. Fun, relaxed environment. No take home stress!

Cons

As there are only a few core products, the scope of work can be limited at times, however, this is made up in the rate at which you will learn the business of insurance. Not a large company, some of the bells and whistles aren't present.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a record of promises made to employees. Don't break that psychological contract formed at the beginning by not delivering on promises due to circumstances and your small size/business demands. If you can't keep a promise, then sit with the employee and state why and discuss options.

    Pros

    Friendly teams to work with, they also provided flexi time which is rarely available elsewhere. Other benefits included a good, pension, training etc. and also an ethical company to work for

    Cons

    The main reason for me to leave Ecclesiastical was the location in Gloucester. Also there are potentially less progression opportunities available in comparison to larger companies.

    Pros

    Fantastic values - genuinely lives by them. Good people. Good benefits (pension, holiday).

    Cons

    Often, people too 'nice'. Too shielded from what's happening in the outside world and how the industry is moving forward. It's heritage can act like a ball and chain around it's ankle. Lots of staff don't appreciate just how good a company it is to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to each other - agree strategy - agree plans - drive relentlessly - act as 'one team' not a group of separate.
