    Pros

    Fast Growing Investment Firm expanding into various areas of Global investing beyond insurance. We are still small and in flat organization model - which gives many employees the opportunity to work on a number of diverse projects.
    Benefits package is very genersous.

    Cons

    Compensation of employees - word is most people or below comparable roles in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Being a smaller firm, we need to retain the best people, in order to do that, we need to start paying them above average for just about everyone does more work than similar roles in other firms.

    Pros

    Career development and easy access to senior management

    Cons

    Very inefficient management. The pay is not competitive and pay raises are scarce. Just recently downsized

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in finding the right talent to run a tight ship-qualified professionals who will work for the right money; eliminate wasteful spending on overpriced consultants that do a poor job, and greedy MGA's that do not produce enough business.

    Pros

    Greater than average diversity. Uniqueness is respected. Flexible working hours and rules. A liberal atmosphere. Comraderie among staff. There is plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Layoffs. Twelve hour work days. Uncertainty about the future of the company. Fires to put out everywhere. High attrition rate. This year, bonuses were not given, and raises were given only to a select few.

    Advice to Management

    Give bonuses and raises next year. We have been working hard, and we deserve to be compensated. Invest more in developing junior staff. Don't just toss them into the lake and expect them to swim.

    Inspiring CEO, good pay, great benefits

    While some department may have exercised good work/life balance, the finance group didn't seem to have that mentality. Poor communication and processes with the parent company were frustrating.
