    I worked at Ryan Specialty (Less than a year)

    Pros

    RSG is a company comprised of insurance industry experts, so as my first taste of the business world, i understood how a very professional culture operated. The lack of a structured internship allowed for an array of tasks making my day to day change constantly. Due to the company's small size and new incorporation when I interned, I was provided the opportunity to create and present a marketing strategy that was substantially implemented.

    Cons

    The experience in the room made for a somber atmosphere and not much social interaction from what I could tell. Hierarchy and lines of command were very strict. "Marketing" at RSG was never defined for me or what my responsibilities would be, so I floated from one task to the next not seeing how one supported or built on the last.

    Advice to Management

    Work to soften the reporting lines and open communication

    I worked at Ryan Specialty (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Original Management Group and being involved in a startup and the positive vibe of being involved in PGR's next adventure

    Cons

    Loss of some very good insurance leaders and reckless influence of Senior sales team leadership on Corporate stewardship.

    Advice to Management

    I think they're beyond the point of any positive suggestions or constructive advice. I wish them well in these times of mergers and acquisitions

    Too much work and poor management. No direction was given and training wasn't efficient.

    Give clearer direction and create a training program for new employees.
