    I have been working at Nbis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Market leaders with very little competition. Subject matter experts with excellent risk management department. The people on the floor are great. Lots of experience. Flat organization. Managers listen to a degree.

    Cons

    Experienced underwriting team is underutilized. Book growth is not rewarded. Too many systems involved. Workflow keeps changing. Key agents will go over an Underwriter's head in a second. Training is trial by fire. Although growing by 25%, still are made to feel like the place is barely making it. Someone is getting rich and it isn't the ones booking the business. Flat org chart makes for no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the team that has provided 25% growth with little additional staff. How about a big year end bonus? :)

    I worked at Nbis full-time

    Pros

    The people working in the trenches are actually great people. They would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it.

    Cons

    I worried that I was going to get fired everyday. The company was unpredictable and the management was not supportive. They could never make up their mind on decisions and routinely made false promises. Being owned by a private equity firm didn't help as they have no idea about insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Replace senior management

    I worked at Nbis (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company with a positive growth outlook and committment to their customer base even if they cannot yet execute on that promise. Human resources and most of the senior management are professional and make sincere inquiries during the interview process.

    Cons

    The hiring process is flawed by not ensuring that position requirements and reporting relationships are clearly explained to candidates. Senior management have disparate opinions on the company's culture and future needs from candidates. Specifically, prevailing legal counsel should have absolutely no involvement in human resource decisions or management of personnel as he is completely unsuited for this role and antagonistic too the extent of being unprofessional. Any candidate should be aware of this internal issue before considering this organization which otherwise has very solid attributes to offer prospective employees.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly determine what your corporate culture with regard to employees and the hiring processes should be prior to considering further expansion. Make difficult decisions regarding who should be involved in that process and why. Ensure that reporting relationships are clearly defined and expectations for positions are clear. Expand your horizons or suffer by limiting the prospective talent pool.
