    I have been working at Generali Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great people, lots of exposure to senior people from across the group. Happy to support motivated employees with development opportunities.

    Cons

    Ridiculous key person dependency issues. Will not invest in the required resource/headcount to even come close to meeting their aspirations.

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend to grow. If you keep refusing to grow your teams you’ll never reach your goals.

    I have been working at Generali Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Environment, job variety. Friendly office with good development opportunities for motivated people. Plenty of new initiatives to which staff is required to contribute.

    Cons

    Still some negativity from the past which management is trying to eradicate. Too much patience for underperforming staff and appalling sickness records in certain areas.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work life balance

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, nice people and clear understanding of importance of work/ life balance. Decent social side. Nice summer party . Also, every Friday in August is a half day which is great.

    Cons

    Poor pay - I had a pay increase of £400 per annum in total whilst there. Much lower than market. Slight Italian bias, as one may expect.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure pay is in line with market to retain staff

    Global organisation, financially strong, clear strategy, treats employees well. Has undergone major transition to create a group identity and streamline operations to focus on core business.

    Historic company with a large number of customers. The staff are proud to work there but the company is experiencing growing pains as it moves to a digital future.
