Pros

The people that work here are very nice, but incredibly scared of th on-going lay offs in the organization.

Cons

There are a lot of problems with this group. They have people who are clearly not qualified in senior positions. There is a "good old boys" network at management levels. Women do not get same treatment. You need to question whether employees are treated fairly in the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-evaluate the management group

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, low stress job, good training (depending on department), some wonderful people, good benefits, good vacation.

    Great place for people with families that want a pretty steady 9-5 job and stress free environment.
    Company is financial more stable than others in the insurance industry.

    Cons

    People are promoted based on legacy and loyalty to management; don't expect to be promoted unless you give your time (3 years +). Not a great place for <30 as most of employees are older, brand is not well recognized in the US but company is working on improving that. People who try to make the organization better are not recognized as everyone is trying to make the status quo and leave the office by 5. Too many cross-department conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out 2-3 layers of middle management and empower employees to share ideas. Reward based on merit and not loyalty and legacy. Recruit more people out of good school (establish graduate recruitment).

    Forget status quo and start recognizing your internal talent. Treat them accordingly. You'd be surprised what you'd see out of them.
