Pros

Good people, community / sustainability agenda, supportive of employees, good compensation and flexible work practices. The Company offers opportunities for career growth.

Cons

Tough time for insurance, poor financial results in 2008. Company is current in a significant period of change and is shifting to a decentralised model. Once this is completed, I expect we will move to a very positive outlook. QBE has been stalking the Group, so there is a possibility of a takeover in the next 12 to 18 months.

Advice to Management

Focus on getting the key things right and restoring the Group to solid profitability.

    Senior management is set in its way

    Redundant and inefficent processes common

    Advice to Management

    Challenge agreed upon notions more often
    Try new solutions other than 'cut the price'

  2. Full of cronyism, nepotism and some nasty people who will do anything to make themselves look good

    Pros

    Some other people there which are nice but keep their heads down to avoid the shrapnel

    Cons

    The place is full of people who will stab you in the back and think nothing of it

    Advice to Management

    Rip out all the dead wood and sack all the psychos in there. It has great potential but it's going to waste. Scrap the legacy systems, stop building on old crap !!!!
