Finance Exit Opportunities

17d

a 

Consultant

Have a friend who was recently laid off. 3 YOE in underwriting (homeowners insurance). Has a bachelors in economics from a top 5 public university. We’re not sure what else he could break into. He wants to get out of that industry entirely. Could anyone provide any insight into potential opportunities he’d be qualified for, outside of insurance. Namely finance or consulting. Thanks in advance.

    Some Leadership is HORRIBLE

    Pros

    Camaraderie. Excellent peer to peer relationships. Found some life-long friends here.

    Cons

    Namely used to be amazing. Ever since some of the current leadership was put in place, things have gone downhill fast. They don’t care if teams are drowning. As long as they’re performing, who cares if they’re killing themselves to do it. All they care about is what they look like to higher-ups. They have no idea how to lead anyone. They don’t encourage open dialogue, don’t take feedback, don’t advocate or fight for their teams, have no idea what the word empathy means, and don’t have any idea how to do any of the job functions of the people who report to them. The best part is, they continue to say “prove it” or “why do they complain so much” when people ask for help or express concern about workload. To make matters worse, leadership frequently gives improper instructions, but when those instructions are followed to the letter and things go wrong, they find someone else to blame, taking no personal responsibility and never holding themselves accountable. Work-life balance is non-existent and leadership (or ignoring the actions of leadership) has made Namely a toxic place to be. Run FAR away or get out while you can.

    Review of Namely Inc.

    Pros

    Great Work environment. Very nice employees. Everyone is willing to help out. It has very much a community vibe to it, which is pleasant.

    Cons

    The benefits are pretty good. Compensation is lacking based on statistics. The wages are on quite a lower scale compared to its competitors. You'll wear many different hats and have many other responsibilities other than what was mandated. It seems like the company is reluctant to pay its people and would rather let them walk, despite some of those people going above and beyond.

    Platforms and process outdated, senior management is disconnected

    Pros

    Your direct team mates may be really awesome! Pay is competitive. Benefits are good. Work life balance was good. They are pretty diverse and accepting of people from All walks of life.

    Cons

    Heavily monitored workday, micromanaged, phone systems and payroll/tax/time solutions are antiquated and need major improvement. Changes come slow and only when the management team can’t ignore the feedback anymore. Management claims there is an open door policy but this is not the case. There was a lot of nepotism promoting of friends and favorites. Training is almost non-existent. They couldn’t get there training together before pandemic hit and when it did it was a complete disarray…. Lastly wouldn’t necessarily come here for career advancement. Aside from nepotism promotions are scarce and they will drag their feet bc they can’t keep staffed up enough so you will likely find yourself doing the job of two people. CEO and upper management are completely disconnected from The day to day work of lower supper teams.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, Majority of co-workers are nice, pretty laid back environment, and beers kegs are un the office pantry.

    Cons

    They're like any other company: publicly cares about diversity and inclusion, when in fact there are barely any POCs in positions of powers. Due to the pandemic, company morale has declined and higher up don't care.
