    Former Employee - Commercial Underwriter in Manchester City Centre, England (UK)

    I worked at RSA Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Was a very friendly working environment. Everyone in the office knows each other and everyone is very approachable if you need any help.

    Cons

    Some members of staff were unprofessional at times and for a FTSE 100 organisation, it is not expected from its staff.

    Share more with your staff so when they are unsettled there is some communication and reassurance

    Pros

    People, benefits, training are all pros. No salary increase in last few years but only voluntary redundancies

    Cons

    Disagree with other reviewer about HR, 1 or 2 weak people in the function, but rest are great. Like rest of us, too much work with too few people. Management and new CEO needs to do something about that

    Former Employee - Claims Management in London, England (UK)

    I worked at RSA Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pension was good and some other benefits around my job.

    Cons

    Short term management changes, Never thought about the customer always the cost base, every year was a threat of redundancy or changes to working location. Very unsettling. Middle Management always looking to promote themselves at the detriment to the people they had responsibility for. Don't turn your back on someone unless you want a knife in it. Prior to Andy Haste CEO it was a great place to work. How a place can turn so quickly with all the wrong people climbing the ladders of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your staff first who will then look after the customers, well looked after customers will make the business a great business. Don't let Offshorers have any contact with the customer in regards to claims and complaints.

    Pros

    Good people, constantly changing, good mid management, wages are fair and opportunities are there if you want to take them due to the size of the organisation

    Recently appointed CEO making job cuts in all the wrong places, poor loss making books of business being held onto, reserving policies!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look beyond job cuts and into the business that is written
