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

    Pros

    Health benefits and some co-workers

    Cons

    Management relies too heavily on a couple people in the department. The expectations for those people are far beyond what is attainable for those that actually perform, no expectations or reprecussions for those that don't perform. Mistakes are unforgivable unless you are one that not much is expected from. Long hours and too much work to do. Management has started to cuss if they were unable to leave when they wanted to and it was your fault. Kept employees there after midnight on New Year but management left to ring in new year leaving team in the office. Treatment of employees is not equal. If you like working where everyday is a struggle, you feel as if you are going to have a heart attack throughout the day every day, and you want no life outside of the company they might be for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to take a good hard look at how the employees are treated and why you are losing good people. Management you have now covers a lot up from top management. Stop believing the rumors from those that don't perform and start showing you care about those that do perform.

    I worked at SCOR as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The full-time senior developers in IT department are arrogant and selfish. The manager is incompetent that his senior developers never never listen to a word of his. Also, you will be pushed to do a lot of work and they would never be pleased by your effort. You can easily find a better place with almost same benefit. Good luck if you decide to join these "people".

    Cons

    1. Arrogant and selfish developers
    2.Incapable manager
    3.Bad code base
    4.chaotic organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat new guys better, or you never hire them!

    Pros

    Benefits, Co-workers and being at an international department

    Cons

    unless you are an actuary there is no opportunity for advancement and you will be underpaid. Certain teams do not have skills management and are not forward thinkers. There is also a group of people in the Charlotte office that like to belittle co-workers in front of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become forward thinkers, do believe that actuaries will solve all the business issues and remove bad managers.

    Pros

    Many hard working, smart people. Opportunities for white males.

    Cons

    Senior management lacks skills for employee and customer relationships. Focused on cutting jobs and expenses. Constant expectation to work more and more hours to get the increasing work done with fewer people. Inappropriate behavior by many senior leaders with no consequences. Financial results are not sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are discouraged, exhausted and stressed out. Do something or continue to lose good people. There is impact to clients.

    Pros

    Great health benefits and coworkers

    Cons

    Seems to restart management wise every 18 months and it is difficult to gain any traction/momentum because every new management team says they have the latest and greatest ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees appreciate stability and the continued staff shakeups disrupt morale and service to the customer

    I worked at SCOR

    Pros

    Great benefits - they are a French company and understand taking care of employees is important. Lots of opportunity if you work hard although they are limited by Paris in terms of raises and promotions. Generous time off policy including 4 extra summer days off.

    Cons

    Too many. CEO Kessler likes conflict and encourages turf wars among senior mgmt. Way too many mergers in last several years. US Life operations was very poorly run but they cleaned house in the last merger so perhaps much better now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow US operations to hire, promote and give raises without months of red tape in Paris. Kessler needs to learn his pro-conflict method create stress and uncertainty all the way down the ranks. Bad method!
