    Nice Place, lovely office, majorly young & enthusiastic people, a great place for those who want to learn

    Many people have left due to the uncertainty surrounding the firm. So, management needs to inspire confidence in the existing employees.

    I worked at RSA Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely none, did not enjoy the experience, stayed far too long. Redundancy was my saviour.

    Cons

    Bullying was terrible. Only saving grace was that the bully left to join another local insurer before getting the boot. We all laughed when we found out that the new employer sacked him on the last day of his 12 month probationary period. Karma is good.

    Advice to Management

    Awful.

    Pros

    People, bonus scheme, mutual respect amongst peers. Limited office politics at play vs other companies Ive been at

    Cons

    Perpetual change programme & transformation leading to high turnover. Exec have become more distant from staff in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    At present RSA is all about increasing share price and value to share holders, with customer and people taking a rather backseat. This needs to managed a little more equitably moving forward.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.
    They are really trying to build a team spirit in the place and it shows.
    The managers are aware of the problems and take them in to account, however they lack the upper management backing to fix them

    Cons

    Lack of training or clear procesess. Lack of communication between connect branches of the company.
    Lack of training. All training is "on the job" but different people have differnent ideas about how to do something so you get a muddled message

    Advice to Management

    Clear and structured training and business practices.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, great location and office space

    Cons

    Poor communication and engagement from Management, they don't seem to have any respect or loyalty towards staff, don't appreciate the staff who continuously worked hard to help the company recover from the scandal a few years back, Pay freeze has been ongoing for a number of years and bonus etc is non-existent. Overall very poor culture and environment and staff seem extremely unhappy. Management form mid-level upwards really need to make changes in how they interact with staff

    Advice to Management

    Show some gratitude and appreciation to your staff. Reward the hard workers.

    I worked at RSA Group (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is the only one I can think of. no one cares if you work from home because surprise! no one is actually in the office to even care you're at home.

    Cons

    Just about everything. Antiquated systems, too many things being done manually, management is a joke that's incapable of making a decision...the list goes on. They have spent a fortune using one consulting firm after another because management lacks vision and has no clear strategy. They have turned into a bunch of puppets and when the consultants pull their strings they do whatever their told to do. It is unbelievable that this company has managed to be in business as long as they have. The morale is so low that they actually still talk about collaboration within the departments. This is how out of touch the management is with the staff. They let go hundreds of people over the course of a few years and talk collaborating. With who exactly? There's only skeleton staff left. Management even insists on doing menial administrative tasks and then complain how busy they are. It is just laughable!!

    Advice to Management

    Give up, cut your loses and sell the damn company! It's a joke on the street.
