    Overall Decent

    Senior Reinsurance Xol Technician (Current Employee)
    Edina, MN

    ProsI truly get paid well for what I do and the benefits are great. I constantly learn all the time and have enjoyed my time. I am able to work independently and have had lots of opportunity

    ConsThere have been management changes which has lead it to be a little more stiff. They have focused more on reports that do not measure half of what I do. Because of this they overlook people for promotion.

    Was a good company in the past

    Risk Analyst (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood benefits, pension. Coworkers were friendly and pleasant to work with. I constantly learned all the time and have enjoyed my time. I was able to work independently and had lots of opportunity

    ConsThere have been management changes which has lead it to be a little more stiff. They have focused more on reports that do not measure half of what I do. Because of this they overlook people for promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop destroying the IT support with the outsourcing to India. Management is clueless and saving money is their only goal, no matter what the outcome.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall rating depends entirely on your Office/Department

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsIf you are in Broking, solid compensation and reasonable hours.

    ConsIf you are not in a revenue generating position, get used to being ignored and dumped on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementArticulate roles of all areas to entire company. Each area speaks internally and has a fuzzy idea of what is expected, but that never makes it to the other areas of the company. Very little communication between departments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great workplace culture

    Risk Analyst (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsInvests in training, great morale in office, team-oriented atmosphere and excellent on-job resources make GC a great place to work

    ConsLong work hours and average coffee but hard work is rewarded. Very little negatives, and excellent place to be. Could not recommend more highly to prospective job searchers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Software Developer Experience

    Architect (Former Employee)
    Hoboken, NJ

    ProsHave good Infrastructure,good cubes and coffee machines.

    ConsNot good for software consultants joining Guy Carpenter Architecture Team ,managers and leads lack management and technical skills .They are not welcoming and collaborative ,They need super software professionals ,they don't want to share their internal systems function ,access and expect the new comer to develop the software

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be fair and transparent to the software consultants and have proper plans ,vision to get the work done from the software developers.Some of the Indian managers are pathetic in Information Technology department and make you work for more than 9 hours

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Time is changing

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIf you are a broker or high level executive, it is a great company to work for.
    With a new CEO and CFO the past year, they may add new value and direction to the company.

    ConsIf you are an administrative or support staff, you might feel being left out.
    a) Minimum training
    b) Company is always looking for ways to reduce staff and save money
    c) Company is implementing a lot of new software but it is not being use to its full potential

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement doesn't spend the time to understand the skills of its employees and deploy & develop them properly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One of the worst work environments

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
    Hoboken, NJ

    ProsGood cubicles and great coffee machines

    ConsWorst management.
    Squeeze blood out of developers.
    No planning no projects just bogus place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe wary of Indian managers in SVP or above level in IT departments. They were pathetic.
