Pros

Support when you require time off for personal reasons
Support if you need to work from home for personal reasons - really good at this
Support with education/studies in terms of pay and time off

Cons

Goals are unreasonable and not supported with strong plans to achieve them
Insufficient resources to get the job done
Focus too many things
Dont always do the right thing for employees and especially customers (caring attitude non-existent)

Advice to Management

Define your goals more succinctly. Avoid layering of branding to overcompensate for the lack of customer service. Focus on the methods of providing better services to customers. Remember without customers you cannot exist. Focus on staffing, because without them your customers cannot be served. Have better planning for system enhancement projects, there are too high a risk that is taken here. Take risk, but be careful where you place it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    bright intelligent people
    if you are vocal, assertive, and you align yourself with the right people you could have a good future with the company
    benefits are not bad
    international company with a lot of rich history

    Cons

    cannot trust senior management, although they may be saying one thing, their actions are totally different
    very competitive environment so you see a lot of dirty politics
    employee recognition practices are not fair. promotions are difficult and given to a select and favoured few.
    you'll find bitter and unhappy people throughout the company
    actuaries are automatically promoted to at least AVP level (may be seen as a pro if you're an actuary)

    Advice to Management

    be open and transparent, focus on developing talent and loyalty to the company, remember the pride values, and try to eminate the practices that dominic left behind.
