I worked at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Solid set of employee benefits. Some great individuals, and generally a friendly office environment. Good opportunities for interesting work if you can handle the futility of it all.

Cons

Due to an increasing pressure to "get stuff done", lots of thrashing about from upper management with constantly changing priorities and minimal strategy. Incompetent try-hards being promoted, further compounding the problem.

Advice to Management

Try to have some vision, and reward competence rather than apparent effort.

    Pros

    (Canada Branch) Small company with very high employee interaction with experienced senior management. Taking on responsibilities is encouraged and good employees are rewarded. Career advancement is not limited. Work life balance is respected. As a small company they won't be able to offer some of the most flexible benefits out there, but this is definitely made up in the way they treat employees, allow time off for personal days, allow time off for emergencies, etc. Because the company is not shareholder driven, most of the pressures are not present as you would find with many larger organizations. As it is a small company, you get a very wide range of experience. As a specialist insurer, you understand your products and business very well in a short period of time. Honesty and integrity are at the fore. Fun, relaxed environment. No take home stress!

    Cons

    As there are only a few core products, the scope of work can be limited at times, however, this is made up in the rate at which you will learn the business of insurance. Not a large company, some of the bells and whistles aren't present.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a record of promises made to employees. Don't break that psychological contract formed at the beginning by not delivering on promises due to circumstances and your small size/business demands. If you can't keep a promise, then sit with the employee and state why and discuss options.

    Generally a good employer with a positive ethos and a warm atmosphere; doing their best in a difficult market

    Cons

    Despite the small size of the company and the Irish branch in particular could be very bureaucratic and too attached to hierarchies
