    Pros

    Successful Company. Industry leader. Hardworking and loyal employees. Good pay, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    RGA is an Underwriting SWEATSHOP. Pure and simple- make no mistake about it. Underwriters are expected to sacrifice personal lives- evenings, weekends, holidays, time with family, health, well-being and even PTO in order to meet overwhelming workload demands.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better idea.

    I have been working at Reinsurance Group of America full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to do good, interesting work, learn a lot, and build on existing capabilities, both your own and the co's. Smart folks. Potential to shape your own job and improve the co's future. Telecommuting ok, within reason.

    Cons

    Corp. culture highly political, Darwinian. Lots of extremely polite backbiting and jockeying for position at high levels. Institutionalized disrespect for associates with less than five years / lower than VP. Gets in the way of getting the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the politics and politicians. Cultivate and reward true initiative,excellence and merit.

    Pros

    Lots of work, the joke is "Job security", good benefits, market pay, the company is very strong and profitable currently

    Cons

    Lots of work, need to be able to get through 2,500-5,000 pages a day, significant global expansion with lots of change currently at all levels

    Advice to Management

    More communication needs to happen, need to increase the size of the staff to handle additional underwriting ventures
