Pros

Average benefits and good co-workers. Everyone is trying very hard to move the firm forward.

Cons

The lines of business are run like little kingdoms by very myopic leaders. They are struggling to integrate acquired firms and have a lot to do before the firm can actually function properly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think like one company, not six. Try to fix three or four issues at a time and do a few things really well. You can't do a hundred things really well. Improve communications.

    Pros

    Easy, brainless work and management does NOT care how much work you do or dont do.

    Cons

    They only really hire temps. They promise they will hire you on but they never do, they just fire a whole bunch and hire new ones. Ive never seen such a high turnover rate anywere I have worked. You get NOTHING other than a paycheck, and when I say nothing I mean NOTHING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some temps and focus on productivity and you will have some loyal happy employees who will make you ALOT more money.

    Lack of planning, ineffective communication and no accountability of senior leadership.

    I worked at QBE

    Pros

    Abundance of work available, diversified work opportunities. Great physcial environment - office, equipment, supplies, amenities. Majority of mainstream workers are cheerful and helpful.

    Cons

    Senior IT leadership clearly does not have a roadmap / master plan for implementation of internal process improvement, nor a solid communications plan that couples with resource planning and training programs. An extremely lean organization with a large percentage of projects behind schedule and/or wasted funding as a result of inefficient planning and execution. Upper level mgt (program managers) seem to be stuck on titles and position rather that being in touch with the floor and project teams. Additionally those leaders seem to not have adequate career experiences within the realm of project management themselves. Constant shifting of priorities, team organization, resources and lack of updates / communication hamper a fast growth environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the CONS and address accordingly .... first by putting resources in place who know how to triage, take inventory, design and execute an action plan for improvement. Executive leadership should take charge and truly know what is happening amongst the teams instead of relying upon the status provided by top level advisors, as the legitimacy of that information should be tested / validated. Finally - work towards having faith and confidence in a TRUE estimate process that is based upon logical discovery of work packages / task realization - so that project initiation isnt viewed as a necessary but unreliable phase of a project.
