    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Tower Group (New York) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K. Working with some really nice people

    Cons

    Don't know where to begin. Very cold and stressful environment. Supervisors being micro-managed to DEATH and the rest of the employees having to feel the pressure. No profit sharing, no senior management visits, negative feedback. No rewarding for jobs well done. No tuition reimbursement to further careers. The AM Best Rating from A- to B- prevented many agents from writing with our company.
