    I worked at Hiscox full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great offices and facilities, excellent benefits including wine hamper, good pension, free gym membership. On face value a great culture. Very social environment - pay day drinks every month, monthly social events.

    Cons

    Office culture of if your face fits you are fine, if not there is a very vocal gentleman in HR who holds a lot of power in who is promoted and who is not - very close to the MD - they are a voice to be reckoned with. If you are not a drinker and don't attend the social events it is career suicide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees equally - look at a better flexible working policy ie allow employees to work from home and offer flexible working. But most importantly do not let one person have so much say on who stays and who goes.

    Pros

    Strictly recruited, self-motivated, amazingly dedicated colleagues. Good company values. Office close to home.

    Cons

    Zero career structure in support areas and no recognition unless your face fits. Unequal application of company policies. Pay hardly increased in the last 7yrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase motivation & be more positive with staff. Improve recruitment communications to get more of the good people.
