Pros

There is an open environment where everyone, regardless of title, has the same workspace. This puts everyone on a level playing field and encourages collaboration.

Cons

There could be more input into the decision making process for junior staff on issues that effect everyone; often people find out more through the grapevine than through senior management.

Advice to Management

Diversify into other product areas that will enable the firm to ride out the storm when catastrophic events occur simultaneously.

    Pros

    Reputation
    Financial stability
    Large organization supports multiple career choices within the same umbrella organization (you don't have to leave the Gen Re Group to try something new)

    Cons

    Large organization isn't always in touch with what makes sense
    Reputation causes some to be arrogant or dismissive of client issues

    Advice to Management

    Get expenses under control--it's great having the financial stability of Berkshire behind you, but if you're just going to whither on the vine slowly, you're not serving the Berkshire shareholders. Make a plan to create a viable entity INCLUDING expenses in the next year or two, or start putting some stuff into run-off.
