A storied company, a case study in poor management; no real talent or innovation

Pros

Dedicated group of long time employees, waiting for the new set of management to move on

Cons

The browner the nose, the higher you go. No real talent needed. Management has decided that a consultant's opinion is worth its weight in gold. Operational efficiency gets you only so much, no real plans to grow the business. The company is over, no interest from the market to buy the boat anchor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest about your workforce targets and what you hope to get out of efficiency. McKinsey decks get you so far, winning in the market comes out of a commitment and choice. Your strategy of selling one business unit per quarter is good, you need to move faster

    Pros

    Good starting vacation and Good Benefits
    Embraces Diversity

    Cons

    The upper mgmt has determined that the Property/Casualty business model should be followed by all of the claims areas. As a result there have been a lot of changes in the claims processing standards for Disability claims and team sizes, which has resulted in a lot of team turnover and a lot of new team leaders. Team leaders are performing the QA process and there are inconsitencies in how the standards are applied.
