      Excellent Company

      Pros

      Free coffee shop plus daily food allowance for excellent canteen. Colleagues are mostly very smart and friendly. Nice office environment in good part of the City. Work was fairly interesting.

      Cons

      Laptops are outdated and no special equipment for technical roles. Highly bureaucratic and corporate so things move slowly and there are lots of hoops to jump through to get even small things done. Seems like there are no clear career paths if you are not an underwriter or actuary. Salary low compared to market average.

      Pros

      Very large but still get access to senior regional management. Bonuses paid. Lots of training and ability to work in different areas of the company. International travel. Should improve when new structure beds in.

      Cons

      Just had a new structure implemented so people with the know-how end up taking on more work. Work isn't reaching the large teams that can actually perfrom it.
