    I worked at ACE Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I liked everyone I worked with, it was a great first job and I learnt a lot. There is room
    For progression if you take the qualifications and put in the effort.

    Cons

    Insurance is really, really boring. Personally the pay wasn’t great for me either and I never received a bonus. Long standing employees aren’t recognised enough for their hard work and loyalty.

    Pros

    can have progression and opportunities if you work for the right people

    Cons

    a lot of ineffective and old employees in the EMEA region that are not progressive and are stuck because it's too costly to fire them. some leaders act out of fear/reactive rather than do the right thing and be good leaders

    Pros

    Nice friendly people, good benefits package, salary is pretty ok, not a long hours culture

    Cons

    Not an imaginative creative place to work, lacking in atmosphere, management are not dynamic or very positive although there are a few exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more positive environment that welcomes change and listens to the ideas of staff

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is ok. The people are friendly.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is so demotivating and negative it sucks away at your soul. The office is akin to working in a morgue with no joy taken from any thing. Management are institutionalised with their tired ways of doing things and will not allow any room for creativity. I cringe when I think that these individuals are interviewing people what an image to be representing . The CEO will announce calls and talk about how bullish and aggressive we are as a company quite forgetting there is more than him to the company. The company will perform well on the basis of their acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    How about just being human? Discover an iota of passion and stop being negative for a start

    I worked at ACE Group full-time

    Pros

    Good people
    Pay good
    Good work / life balance
    Travel Opportunities
    Great CEO

    Cons

    IT Management team does not seem to be able to move forward
    Business has little respect for IT or what it does
    Rare promotion from within, normally new blood was sought from outside ACE.
    Old old old technology (though this was changing as i left)
    Dull work, nothing too ground breaking (but it is insurance, so maybe to be expected)
    IT Service team a nightmare to deal with (not true of all people but some people who work in ITS seem to block releases just to be difficult)

  8. "Large multinational insurance company that does much as the same as all the others"

    Pros

    Large company so good opportunity for progression. Good offices in London and work life balance not too bad so hard work encouraged.

    Cons

    Some structural changes in the last year or so have lead to some challenges but will probably settle down once kinks have been ironed out.

    Advice to Management

    Standardise globally. There seem to be a lot of teams doing their own thing throughout the organisation when advantages could be gained with synergies.
