Good

Actuarial Analyst (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsLots of talented people. Lots of different things going on. Barriers between business units eroding which is leading to better collaboration. Management moves forward with hard decisions.

ConsTakes a while to root out bad managers - but they do it. Younger people get a bit stuck if they are in a department that depends on lots of renewal business. Kind of cookie cutter and they get bored and leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, I liked it there. The negative things influencing my departure were fixed about a year after I left.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
