    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Paragon Group of Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Head office is based in a central location and easily accessible. Staff are quite friendly (not including management).

    Cons

    The management are very aloof from the rest of the staff. Staff are not treated particularly well and the pay is not great. Have witnessed several instances of staff being shouted at by underwriting managers. Not a great working environment.

    Advice to Management

    You refer to yourselves as a family company who treats its staff well and with respect. My experience and that of others would prove this is not the case.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent basic wage but no chance of bonus due to un achievable targets and poor system resources. Benefits are good but these don't pay the bills!!!

    Cons

    Senior management think that we have the best products available... In reality we are 5 years behind our competition. Not prepared to listen to reason. Un realistic targets not just for individuals but for the whole company...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and stop being so bullish

    I have been working at Paragon Group of Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good friendly atmosphere and supports staff if they desire progression. Seemingly very staff oriented which is reassuring.

    Cons

    The inability to retain staff due to low wages is having a negative effect on morale, less experienced staff without adequate training applies pressure to hardworking staff who have been there years.

    Advice to Management

    Review pay structure and help retain and hire better staff, the investment at this point will certainly pay off in the long run.
