    I have been working at Global Bankers Insurance Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is what makes this place so great. I've never worked at an organization that is so non-bureaucratic and flat so that the executive management asks for your input and you feel like you are directly involved with decisions at the company.

    Cons

    The company is still growing, so it is difficult to staff it so quickly

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing

    Pros

    This is a rapidly growing company with zero bureaucracy. I've never worked at another company that offers this level of resources, freedom, and opportunity.

    Cons

    Like any rapidly growing company, at times systems and processes have needed to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in highly talented people. The team is really coming together.

    Pros

    GBIG has a unique culture -- definitely feels more like a tech company than an insurance company. It's a dynamic, fast-paced environment that rewards creativity and intellectual curiosity. We operate in a fairly relaxed environment with a flat organizational structure. The C-suite has an open-door policy and you're encouraged to drop in whenever you have questions or just want to learn more about GBIG's strategy.

    Cons

    The ability to function independently and take the initiative to get things done without being asked is essential. If you function best with a lot of direction from your superiors, you might feel a little lost here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. We're well on our way to building an industry-leading insurance business and the current strategy / vision is integral to getting us to the next level.

    I have been working at Global Bankers Insurance Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been working here for almost six months, and have had a great experience so far. The hiring process was straightforward and efficient (from the first conversation to job offer took a little under 2 weeks). The culture here fits people who have a "go getter" attitude and entrepreneurial mindset. All of the employees are committed to growing the business and the immense growth of Global Bankers in its short life...

    Cons

    The usual growing pains of a new company. Trying to implement new processes and systems can be frustrating at times. But also presents an opportunity to be a part of process and strategy building that will be used in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and hiring talented employees

    I have been working at Global Bankers Insurance Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Global Bankers is a great place to work — particularly as a lawyer. The dynamic, fast paced environment is exciting and provides ample opportunity to grow/develop. As a lawyer, you are exposed to a wide range of sophisticated legal work and you are treated as a business partner. A strong entrepreneurial spirit permeates the culture and helps create a high energy office environment. The people take their jobs seriously,...

    Cons

    The fast paced environment is not for everyone and can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management should focus on maintaining the transparent and entrepreneurial culture as the company continues to grow.

    As an actuary, Global Bankers Insurance Group is a great place to see and get involved in all aspects of a fast growing international insurance company. A fun and dynamic environment with challenges for all levels of experience.
