I worked at Starr Companies full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere, good local management, good local people on the ground. The company is new so they are still working through growing pains and their horrible systems.

Cons

No direction, Nepotism, Senior management are incompetent and don't know how to lead. Took my resignation like a break up. Not only asked me to leave (which was expected) but then did not compensate me for the two weeks notice i provided them (unexpected and very unprofessional for company that wants to be taken seriously)

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with a little more respect

    I worked at Starr Companies full-time

    Pros

    Company has a lot of capabilities and hunger to write business

    Cons

    "Leadership" is poor with inexperienced managers in both region and home office; not able to service clients; writes business due to price alone

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting AIG previous employees whose only value is to play in the sandbox with poor senior management; start over with hiring people that actually know how to lead

    I worked at Starr Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I spent 5 years with Starr and had a very enjoyable experience. The people are smart, efficient and problem solvers. A great environment!

    Cons

    By 2010 many senior executives from AIG came over, possibly after waiting for some of the scandal "dust" to settle. With this came the old boys network I had wanted to avoid.
    And things simply deteriorated from there.

    Advice to Management

    To back to problem solving and creative solutions. You were so good at it. Now, all I saw was indecision and finger pointing
