    I have been working at Reinsurance Group of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with RGA for almost 4 years, and have been very happy here. My supervisor is great, pay is great, and the flexibility is great. I feel like a have a good work-life balance. It has been nice to dress casually, although that policy is changing soon to become business-casual (still not too restrictive, though).

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.

    RGA is a great company, with a very strong financial backing. The Claims Division is full of great personal.

    Pros

    Great training program. You start off training with a member of the company's training team. Once you have accomplished this you are assigned a trainer who works in your division. This person will train you on the day to day aspects of the position.

    Cons

    The amount of work can be challenging. The change into a new imaging system has created a backlog of work that has lead to required overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bringing on more full time employees to help ease the work load on current employees. This will help to lower your employee turnover.

    Pros

    Co-workers and clients you support are extremely friendly and fun to work with. The environment is really nice and the benefits are fairly good.

    Cons

    People are set in their ways. IT will often bow to the business needs even if it goes against their strategic plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with your employees. Define better roles for each job and promotion paths for workers.

    Great place to work if you're an actuary. Benefits are good. Nice 401(k) match and immediate vesting.

    Company is growing and starting to be more bureaucratic; lots of rules now.

    Loosen up on the bureaucracy.

    I worked at Reinsurance Group of America

    Pros

    As an actuary you get premium pay
    Company investing in revamp of systems
    New blood is good, more needed
    Lots of long tenured smart people

    Cons

    Company struggling with change but despite itself and the culture does well financially
    Lots of people on the market which is not good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive team needs team building and leadership training. They are individually good/smart

    I worked at Reinsurance Group of America full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are very friendly. The business is relatively stable.

    Cons

    I found it very difficult to actually accomplish anything within IT. The politics and old corporate mindset stopped short any attempt at innovation or progress. Every tool/solution has to meet the needs of the entire department, and so nothing ever happens. The clients have not been exposed to proper IT practices and so that is an additional barrier to getting anything right. All in all not a toxic environment, but a frustrating one. It is attracting and retaining people who are just there for a paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jettison your 90's model of IT and empower your teams to innovate again.
