Pros

Good people for the most part. Reasonable work/life expectations in most cases. Highly regarded firm within the commercial insurance industry (top 3).

Cons

Lack of formalized support functions. Sub-par performance review process. Sold upfront on big bonuses, but lots of excuses when it's time for Willis to pay-up - bonuses are hard to come by regardless of performance or profitability.

Advice to Management

Work on infrastructure and improve annual employee review processes. Do what you say you are going to do with respect to annual raises, bonuses, and employee reviews. Pay more attention to internal cooperation between service teams and strive to eliminate unhealthy internal competition.

    Pros

    Willis is a large company with many technial areas. Any person with a drive to succeed and a strong work ethic would do very well. With Willis it's truly all about what you put into it. The IT leadership recognizes those persons that go above and beyond and gives them the opportunities to succeed.

    Cons

    Willis is in the midst of a power struggle between its UK and North American operations. There are opposing phylosophies at play. These cultural differences cause a constant headache on both sides making real progress twice as hard as it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the leadership on one side of "the pond" or the other. In the end it doesn't truly matter which one. Until there is a common agreement in management of the way forward, there can be no "One Flag".

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good resources internationally, Strong Aviation and Construction practice.

    Cons

    North American operations are weak, lack of support staff. Too much focus on bottom line and shareholders, not focused on clients. Turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck, unless your Joe Plumeri, your days are numbered. If you're in Joe's inner-circle its a three-year job at best. Challenge the status quo, do what's right for your customers, both internal and external.
