    I have been working at GNY Insurance Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    GNY has carved out a nice little niche for themselves in the market and they are very good at what they do. There are some good people that work here, who are courteous and knowledgeable. That is about it

    Cons

    There is a huge disconnect between senior management and lower level employees. Management has no clue what it takes to get stuff done here and the frustrations that employees face on a daily basis. Underwriters have no authority to make decisions and everything must be referred. There is no trust afforded to people. There are also certain managers here who are extremely condescending to lower level/new employees,... who are made to feel like children. I think one of the senior underwriting managers has a graduate degree in micromanaging. Work from home privileges are not extended to all employees. The office is straight out of 1987. Some of the filing cabinets here (and the paperwork in them) are older than some of the employees. Seriously outdated and depressing office environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. If you spent half as much time listening to your employees as you do coddling your brokers, this would be a much better place to work. As stated in other reviews, the office is in serious need of updating. Both the decorations and furniture are 1980's vintage. A modernization would go a long way in making people happier.
