    Dynamic environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsOswald is focused on providing client based solutions around employee health and wellbeing as well as healthcare benefits and management for employers in the mid to large marketplace. Information driven and committed to excellence.

    Great if you're a 40+ White Male

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsSmart people, hard workers, good products and services, about market on salary.

    ConsNo room for career growth if you're not a white middle aged male. Certain departments were also a revolving door (probably due to low work-life balance as other reviewers have pointed out).

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify upper management and get rid of the "boys club" mentality which is accepted/embraced among a lot of the producers/management there.

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

    Great to be a customer of Oswald but not an employee

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOswald does an amazing job with clients of all sizes. Highly level of knowledge and service. There is a tremendous amount of smart, talented and experienced people that really care about their clients and the firm.

    ConsNot a professionally managed organization. Still acts like a small firm with little to no organizational structure, professional development, performance mgt or process. A clear delineation between "haves" and "have nots". Women are not treated fairly and there is no opportunity for advancement unless one fits the mold of the white, male, 50+ yr old. Neither the Execs nor HR leadership see diversity and inclusion as a priority

    Advice to Senior ManagementBoard and Sr Management needs to openly and honestly deal with what is not working. Why they lose clients, why they lose staff and what is wrong rather than just spending and selling into it. Put the egos aside

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
