    Pros

    - The culture is inviting and empowering
    - The people are incredibly smart and personable
    - You are given paid days off to study for actuarial exams
    - Many opportunities for growth and raises

    Cons

    - Work is demanding and will require more than just a 9-5 day. I actually still take this a positive that the work is so involved, but a balance between your work and life is very important

    Advice to Management

    - Keep empowering your employees
    - Find more ways for employees to interact across lines of business

  2. Lives its "client first" values and delivers for investors

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, very high caliber talent, live and breathe client-centric values, outstanding collective expertise and resources; very well managed financially; have made intelligent acquisitions

    Cons

    As in any large organization, there are some who aggressively self-promote to get ahead; fiscal discipline means staffing can get tight; promotion process can be very slow (the downside of being very carefully thought through)

    Advice to Management

    Develop, recognize and reward your "junior" leaders for their contributions to building top talent
