    Pros

    Exposure to many aspects of the insurance industry, at least in the accounting department. Many smart people to learn from and work with.

    Cons

    Systems were always a problem. Strict deadlines. And a few Asian divas.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro manage and bring back the free lunches.

    Pros

    As a program accountant I felt that even though you I was in an accounting position, I learned about insurance operations and reinsurance. This is a valid point that management makes when convincing employees to help run off the company. There is free lunch, delivered to the office, and the management is not stuffy.

    Cons

    The company is in runoff, so that's always in the back of employees' minds, because the company is not a going concern. It's difficult to do a good job as an accountant there since underwriting, claims, and reinsurance systems are lacking. Management is face with having to convert systems and run off the company with limited resources, which is a tedious process for all involved, and frankly brings out the worst in some.

    Advice to Management

    Free lunch, forever!
