No opinion of CEO

I worked at Endurance Specialty full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits: salary at par, 401k match, medical , discounts on company shares purchase etc...

Cons

Incompetent mid level leadership. Bullying by senior management
Poor planning and decision making.
You work 50 to 60 hours a week with no extra pay but your manager gets promotion and big bonus.

Advice to Management

Talk to employees.Recognize most of the individuals left on there own.

    Pros

    Now - Good benefits (ie. 401k, medical, etc.)

    3+ years ago (prior to existing management)
    Clearly defined goals and objectives
    Very strong and knowledgeable team
    Minimal downtime, so we were able to focus on the fun things like implementing new functionality and features for applications, etc.
    Great exposure to new technologies
    Cutting edge
    Good partnerships with many reputable vendors

    Cons

    Bullying by senior management
    Incompetent leadership
    Lack of technical knowledge which led to poor decision making
    Poor planning

    Managers all have history together. It was a good ole boys club. Everyone in a lead role was someones friend, previous co-worker, neighbor, mechanic, gardener, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Review the exit interviews over the last few years and I am sure you will notice a common theme. Also, recognize most of the individuals left on there own, some right before their bonuses.... yes, it was that bad! All the hardwork done in the past has gone up in flames... This company had the potential to be alot more than it is today unfortunately.
