    I have been working at Nassau Re full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn new things; poised for growth

    Cons

    Employees who were there at time of purchase are viewed as less valuable than new hires; new leadership team opinion seems to be that if you are a longer tenured employee you cannot execute in keeping with the new corporate culture

    I worked at Nassau Re full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, medical/dental/401k and time off benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    "Do more with less" and continual reorganizations and layoffs make it feel like there's no firm direction and no future. Ineffective management and leadership from the VP level and above. A lot of higher level managers work from home on a regular basis, disconnected from real time and face to face interaction with their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the reorganizations and layoffs and stabilize the company from inside. Bring in more effective management. Make work from home for management an exception, not an entitlement.

    I worked at Nassau Re full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    As a former member of management of a large, successful agency, I was able to communicate with the Home Office, learn by attending peer meetings & had support from upper managment. Pay was dictated by local managment & was appropriate. Travel opportunities were appreciated.

    Cons

    Poor decision on management's part to close field offices. Lack of experienced employees to provide field assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Train & compensate your loyal employees so turn-over will be minimum. Don't close service centers at lunch time.
