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

    Pros

    - Great work life balance (flexible working, flexidays, no long hours/being seen culture)
    - Some genuinely good and interesting people, the odd ego but far less than seen at competitors
    - Intelligent colleagues who genuinely know what they're talking about, not bluffing
    - Dress down in non customer facing roles
    - Pay seems to be slightly above industry average for similar roles/location

    Cons

    - Lots of reshuffles across the business with a complicated management structure
    - Lack of willing to really innovate
    - Unsuitable people being promoted who aren't up to the job but just left to carry on
    - Some poor computer systems
    - Senior management plough ahead with ideas despite being given evidence that they aren't good ideas
    - Some VERY bitter people
    - Direction and priorities seem to change too much and incoherently leaving a lot of people bewildered
    - No idea what the company's direction and strategy actually is, beyond the usual "Be the Best General Insurer" buzzphrase that all GIs use
    - Lots of consultants coming in to do jobs that internal people could and would like to do

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to the people below you. Don't ask them for evidence of an idea and plough ahead with it regardless when you've been given evidence it makes no sense whatsoever

    - Treat people consistently

    - Reshuffles really make everyone a lot more angry than you realise. Ask if it's REALLY necessary

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at RSA Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a 300 year old company so has a good brand in the industry. Bonuses are great when the company is doing well.

    Cons

    RSA does not value its employees. Recently laid off lots of people and many forced to retire early.

    Advice to Management

    Value those that have potential, not those that have been there for 30 years but do not know what they are doing.
