I worked at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)
There are some really great people who work there - very supportive and friendly. The employees really care about what they do and how the company acts. People I spoke to in other departments seemed content and happy.
I can only speak for claims which is where I worked - I found the management in this area by far the most difficult I've ever encountered. The impression I got was that all they cared about were their own positions - it felt as if they cared little for their employees.
Advice to Management
Generally a good company - take a serious look at claims management to see why so many good people left.
I applied online. I interviewed at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group (Gloucester, England (UK)) in October 2011.
Brief telephone interview followed by competency based interview face to face. It was a relavitely relaxed interview and felt quite informal. They seemed more interested in getting to know the person than they did finding out about your qualifications or suchlike. This may have changed since. They also allowed me to speak to a team member (confidentially) to ask any questions about the role and the company at the end of the interview. This created a good impression as it was easy to ask about things such as the management and support and training they provided.
