    I worked at Insurance Australia Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company at its core, progressive strategy under the leadership of Peter Harmer, good benefits, great focus on diversity & inclusion. Lots of good things happening!

    Cons

    Confused re priorities despite clarity of strategy. Too many restructures and loss of some "people centric" DNA that makes IAG great. Culture is at risk through inaction

    Advice to Management

    Strategy is sound, don't get distracted. Need to really refocus on culture before it's too late. There is great passion within your organization but your people are fatigued with constant change - you need to genuinely invest in them (not just talk about it). I'm truly grateful for my time in this wonderful company and I wish you all the best!

    Please focus on the work & implementation & delivery itself, rather than big topics which do not relevant to what we do.
