I have been working at Hiscox full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It all comes from the top. The senior management at Hiscox practice what they preach. They are innovative and open. There is a standard expected of employees, and each of the managers ensure that they to meet those standards.

The workplace is friendly and communications is open, technology is available to allow a fantastic work/home balance, with facilities to work from home.

My on team is spread across the UK, but we still chat as friends as well a colleagues.

Employee benfits are excellent.

On top of all that, loyalty and employee needs are recognised by internal career progression and training opportunities. Longer term service is rewarded by 2 month paid sabbatical.

 I have worked with Hiscox as both a contactor (18 years) and now as a permy, in that time they have helped me through awful times (the loss of my son and other family issues), even though as a contractor they was no obligation to.

Cons

For me - Travel it's a long way into London, but that is offset by the work from home options. I really can't think of anything else.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.
