Doing a good job in a tough environment.

Head of Peformance & Reward (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Insurance Australia Group

ProsGood people, community / sustainability agenda, supportive of employees, good compensation and flexible work practices. The Company offers opportunities for career growth.

ConsTough time for insurance, poor financial results in 2008. Company is current in a significant period of change and is shifting to a decentralised model. Once this is completed, I expect we will move to a very positive outlook. QBE has been stalking the Group, so there is a possibility of a takeover in the next 12 to 18 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on getting the key things right and restoring the Group to solid profitability.

Very positive, great people. Not a lot of opportunity for non-managers

Senior Analyst/Programmer (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Insurance Australia Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCollegiate culture, good remuneration & benefits, very secure. Excellent work-life balance, very family friendly.

ConsOnly career path is into people management, not much technical leadership. Frequent restructures. One-way communication. You need to have a good relationship with your direct manager, and also that manager needs to be very effective when it comes to negotiation with their superiors.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild first before restructure.

Great place to work

Programmer (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Insurance Australia Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLots of different opportunities in technology

ConsIt's a big company and I suppose IT is still seen as a cost centre by a lot of older folks in the company. In reality, if it wasn't for IT, there wouldn't be a company.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve your technologists in more decisions, don't dictate to them.

Heading in a positive direction

Business Partner (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Insurance Australia Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI work with some smart, driven yet down to earth people. IAG genuinely cares about their employees and balances business and people strategy well. There's a clear focus on customer, community and delivering great products. Further, leadership is working hard to develop a culture that the organisation needs for sustained success.

ConsThere could be better greater focus on innovation - As insurance is fast becoming a commodity, how IAG separates itself form it's competitors while everyone else compete on price and no frills offerings is key.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinued focus on creating a culture of accountability and innovation

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Insurance Australia Group

ProsGood people, diverse backgrounds, staff very customer focused.
