    I worked at Insurance Australia Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    a great traditional community oriented company with vast opportunities in the Australasian market, very well respected brands. Excellent grad program and well worth investigating.

    Cons

    There is a gap between the overall group strategy and the local implementation of the tactical actions at EGM level. Resulting in a real lack of leadership and people pulling in different directions.

    Advice to Management

    close the knowledge gap between CEO and EGM. Focus on simple changes that will make achieving tasks at IAG easier. Get on the same page with regards top down strategy and how each department contributes.

    Pros

    Middle Management are very supportive

    Cons

    Senior Management give no feedback as to direction, or if they do it is just lip service. A bit of an old boys club at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old boys club, staff morale is low.
