Current Employee - Underwriting Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Underwriting Manager in New York, NY

Pros

Extreme freedom to do you job; extremely entrepreneurial; nice offices in great location for commuters; laid back day to day environment; nice friendly people.

Cons

Major silos - poor interaction between departments and different product lines. In my division, underwriting guidelines are confusing, not clearly communicated and seem to be different for different peoples. There are clear favorites who bring in big $$ and get special treatment no matter how crazy they act and who they offend. Zero feedback from division management regarding where you stand or a job well done.

You are thrown into a market and told to build it with you contacts. If you don't bring in $$ you are let go or your territory is shut down. Known for getting in and out of business lines and territories fast. People are nervous about their jobs and futures. Not focused on employee morale. No one is really straight forward about what the issues are or how to fix them. Day to day peer to peer interaction below Sr. Management level is very negative. Not a happy place.

Advice to Management

Note cons listed above and address them. Try to really understand what is going on in the underwriting ranks (beyond those surveys) and go from there.

    Advice to Management

    More managers on site. I see/hear from my manager once or twice a week. I'd love to not always have to deal with problems on my own, but it does help make me more resourceful.
