  2. IT resourcing company for Liberty Mutual

    I have been working at Liberty IT

    Pros

    As an IT resourcing company for Liberty Mutual it has good job security and flexible working policy.

    Cons

    No power to influence future technology path. If you are looking to make innovative changes or suggestions you won't! Management does not have any real power in mapping out direction for LIT. Be sure to know which area you will be working in as some are better than others! Pay is far below average for a job that demands blood sweat and long hours. Hard to advance and management are very political and not willing to listen even when they say they will. Leave your ideas at the door.

    Advice to Management

    Need to push back more when dealing with the US. You also need to gain more autonomy and learn from mistakes. Don't sell the company to people on the basis of it being a separate company to Liberty Mutual. It's an IT resourcing company at bedt and should not try to portray a different image when recruiting people.

    Pros

    Fantastic colleagues and very good managers No blame culture - making a mistake is far from the end of the world You can forget about work when you leave the office for the evening/weekend Flexible working / working from home Relatively quick opportunity for promotion

    Cons

    Below average salary - although HR will try to convince you that it is "competitive"

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages - nobody is fooled by the "industry research", 90% of our friends elsewhere get paid more

    Pros

    remote working onsite gym perks card very friendly environment "bun culture" among teams of bringing buns or going out for breakfast/lunch

    Cons

    sometimes too rigidly focused on processes increasingly focused on numbers/stats

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff! You will get some good ideas, some bad ideas, and some of them will completely contradict each other, but attempt to take them on board.

    Pros

    - Non-management level staff are great to work with. - Career path is well defined. - Little perks to cheer you up now and again.

    Cons

    - Scratch below the surface and you will see that it is an I.T. resourcing company. - The project managers are the worst I have ever come across in my 10+ years in the industry. - The level of office politics at play is incredible. - Despite loads of talk about training on joining the company, you never get the chance to attend any of these courses. - Little to no transparency in relation to how you are progressing as an employee but the company expects constant (monthly) feedback from you.

    Advice to Management

    I realise that you are restricted by the actions of the Liberty Mutual but you need to be more open and honest with your staff.

    Pros

    -The work is generally enjoyable -The social club and company events are fantastic -Staff are welcoming and friendly -You can progress quickly up the corporate ladder -Good rewards scheme and benefits -Good community outreach. Lots of charity work, STEM and apprenticeships

    Cons

    -Finance lie to their staff and say they pay competitively. They pay less than most other employers I've seen -A number of staff members clearly don't know what they are doing and they are often in a senior role. I've seen placement students more capable than some of these people -Office politics is a real pain sometimes.
