    Pros

    Good pay and solid benefits

    Cons

    Very cliquey at the executive level; if you're not part of the "in" crowd and adept at apple polishing, your career will not advance. Insurance group leadership talks about change and improving, but is really only interested in maintaining the status quo. Micro management is pervasive from various executives in the regional office and operators in the field spend far too much time answering silly requests, providing data and insights to provide "sound bites" for regional executives to report up and out to HQ and the analyst community. Lots of executive churn, which is costly for the company and hurts morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new executive leadership, people who are actually interested in improving the company, collaborating with the different country operations, and who are strong executives in their own right.
