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.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
