    Former Employee - Senior Manager  in  Greenwich, CT
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Greenwich, CT

    I worked at PartnerRe full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company is generally staffed with good, talented people, and has a culture committed to doing the right thing. People work hard, but there is a respect for the necessity of a work-life balance.

    Cons

    I have heard that there is now significantly less communication from senior management to employees than previously, and that some good people are leaving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that success depends ultimately on people executing appropriately; increase communication with employees.

    Current Employee - - Private in Greenwich, CT

    I have been working at PartnerRe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not many, the pros used to be compensation but considering the amount of time spent on projects it's really not worth it...

    Cons

    Overly political environment, down-sizing and letting go of employees that work hard to have the remaining people work even harder..., management is out of tune with their teams, focus is entirely on saving money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your employees. Stop treating people like numbers.
