Horrible company to work for... if only they would change the management/leadership.

I worked at Endurance Specialty

Pros

Now - Good benefits (ie. 401k, medical, etc.)

3+ years ago (prior to existing management)
Clearly defined goals and objectives
Very strong and knowledgeable team
Minimal downtime, so we were able to focus on the fun things like implementing new functionality and features for applications, etc.
Great exposure to new technologies
Cutting edge
Good partnerships with many reputable vendors

Cons

Bullying by senior management
Incompetent leadership
Lack of technical knowledge which led to poor decision making
Poor planning

Managers all have history together. It was a good ole boys club. Everyone in a lead role was someones friend, previous co-worker, neighbor, mechanic, gardener, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review the exit interviews over the last few years and I am sure you will notice a common theme. Also, recognize most of the individuals left on there own, some right before their bonuses.... yes, it was that bad! All the hardwork done in the past has gone up in flames... This company had the potential to be alot more than it is today unfortunately.

    Pros

    Nice benefits package, more or less nice office space (White Plains), easy car commute. Some nice collegues.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what happens down below. No appreciation for hard work. Long working hours. Very hard to get promotions and raises. No real career advancement. You need to turn the world over in order to get "meet expectations" for your yearly review. No additional professional training after asking manager numerous times. Managers playing favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what employees on the lowest level say about the company. Don't rely purely on the annual surveys and their interpretations by the hired company. Ask employees what they think of their immediate managers and take actions.

    Pros

    location in Bermuda is nice to travel to. Travel policy is more than fair.

    Cons

    Company is more worried about having everything written in emails instead of just getting the job done. Most employee attitudes seem to trickle down from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with all the emails. Listen to your lower level employees and take responsibility when issues arise. Your employee morale is down whether you realize it or not.
