    This company has no loyalty to its employees and is only concerned with their bottom line

    I worked at General Star Management

    Pros

    The people you work with are excellent, it's the management that has their own agenda

    Cons

    Promotions are not always given when they are deserved. Sometimes, when re-structuring, people are demoted who should not be. Management has its own agenda, and doesn't always promote the people they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of India and give jobs back to Americans!

    I have been working at General Star Management

    Pros

    They do encourage continuing education and compensate for professional designations. They give great opportunities for new college graduates. It's one of the few insurance companies that will have recent college grads "driving their own desk" in underwriting.

    Cons

    They overlook the talent that they have. There is very poor treatment to long term employees. They are currently very top heavy. Upper management has fear of decision making thus reinforcing a culture of analysis/paralysis. There is constant change to the organizational structure, so much so that it is not uncommon to not know who is in charge of what. It's a very political environment, depending on the employee's talents in their own "spin" anyone one could achieve greatness at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the "front lines" and spend time in the "trenches". Get back in touch with what is really going on. Start treating long term employees with the respect they deserve. Stop driving employees away with unrealistic and unrelenting demands. Give even praise to those that are producing, look at numbers not at image.
