Incredible, generous employer, but still needs to learn about modern people management

I have been working at Munich RE full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The small things the company does are wonderful, hampers at Christmas, fruit delivered to our floors each day, and mostly really good, smart people to work with.

Cons

Only just coming to terms with broader application of flexibility, real concerns about lack of visibility of staff, despite them delivering results.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your team but don't be scared to ask them what they are doing, you're the manager!

    Work hours are very flexible.
    Overall, good company to work for

    Cons

    The office is relatively small, and there is little openings for new graduates.
    You can be expected to work long hours.

    I have been working at Munich RE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Truly international company that provides great training and looks after its people exceptionally well. If you want to spend your career with one company, this is the kind of company you want to join.

    Cons

    Downside of the above is that it can be a bit paternalistic, which does not appeal to everyone. It can also make it a quite political environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace a couple of top people and bring in a few catalysts of change, but don't change the overall culture.
