    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good bonus. Training opportunities are available to those who want them. Free onsite gym with tons of equipment and classes.

    Cons

    Raises are minimal and promotions are rare. Management has a clear bias toward underwriters, so actuaries, claims staff, and operations personnel are treated as second class citizens. Which means, Less money and fewer advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the salary bands. Rotate staff more frequently so that underwriters and technical staff have the chance to learn outside their current roles.

    Pros

    stable and friendly environment
    plenty of training opportunities
    generally work and life balance (flexible working hours is promoted in some areas in recent years)

    Cons

    bureaucratic management team
    slow to adapt to market changes
    networking is overrated...personal growth depends on who you know not how much you know about the job

    Advice to Management

    senior management team should build more effective channel to hear more from the bottom, not just from your managers.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, comfortable work environment with low stress, mostly good people, solid parent in Munich Re. overall a great company

    Cons

    Very easy to get too comfortable and coast through life. Most people have been here over 20 years because no one gets fired and the work is easy. After a while you have no where to go and stop learning.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone complains about how busy they are but the reality is they are not. look at the people who leave and beg to get back in. Do not allow employees to get so comfortabel and hang around for 20 plus years. they are not brinign anything to the table.

    Pros

    good health benefits for employees

    Cons

    seems the admin department hires uneducated people who just grow with the company and make it hard to fire them. They have no idea what is going on and rely on the younger newbies to figure it out... of course the younger employees keep leaving within months.

    Advice to Management

    promote the hard working not the lazy staff that has been there forever.

    Pros

    - Chance to learn from the best and contribute to an industry-leading organization
    - Salary and benefits are fantastic
    - Great opportunity for young professionals to enter an aging industry

    Cons

    - It is indeed an aging industry
    - Being owned by a parent company has Pro's and Con's, and you just need to be aware that it does have an effect

    Advice to Management

    Everything seems under control. Keep doing what you're doing.
