Poor leadership and management

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Starr Companies full-time

Pros

Company has a lot of capabilities and hunger to write business

Cons

"Leadership" is poor with inexperienced managers in both region and home office; not able to service clients; writes business due to price alone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring and promoting AIG previous employees whose only value is to play in the sandbox with poor senior management; start over with hiring people that actually know how to lead

    I worked at Starr Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I spent 5 years with Starr and had a very enjoyable experience. The people are smart, efficient and problem solvers. A great environment!

    Cons

    By 2010 many senior executives from AIG came over, possibly after waiting for some of the scandal "dust" to settle. With this came the old boys network I had wanted to avoid.
    And things simply deteriorated from there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To back to problem solving and creative solutions. You were so good at it. Now, all I saw was indecision and finger pointing
