    I worked at Hiscox as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, learn a lot and quickly, treat their staff excellently including awesome Xmas parties! Great benefits, good work-life balance

    Cons

    There's a lot of the same type of personality types; 'bolshy' and not afraid of challenges which makes sense theoretically to move forward but It seems this makes projects go around in circles whilst everyone is too busy challenging to actually get anything done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your workforce to hire people who are not like you

    I have been working at Hiscox full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In short, the people. You will work with intelligent, driven but empathetic colleagues. You will learn a tremendous amount in culture that absolutely reflects the values of the company. I've never worked in a company where the values are so ingrained in the people. The working environment and benefits are also excellent.

    Cons

    There is a bias towards underwriting and underwriters which I guess is natural given the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One woman on the senior management team isn't enough.
