    Pros

    I read Glassdoor reviews before joining Hiscox and they were positive and optimistic, after some time in role now I would say they are accurate and the themes reflect the reality. As a workplace it deserves the merit. Hiscox is a growing organisation which makes it an exciting place to work, in the vast majority - teams are very committed, passionate and knowledgable. Ownership and accountability are key, as is the importance of being ‘human’ which is frequently quoted. Overall there is an entrepreneurial spirit to life at Hiscox which makes it a uniquely positive place to work. The challenge of going from a big/small company to small/big company will not be easy for all and requires a sense of perspective that balances looking ahead without overlooking the identity and personality of the past. Other positives (although subjective) would be the varied collection of non-corporate artwork in all locations (there is a 12 metre soviet rocket in the middle of the York office), subsidised staff services (PTs, physio, restaurants) and job prospects based on growth/change. And yes, there is also a wine hamper at Christmas!

    Cons

    No obvious cons come to mind
