    Pros

    Genuinely fantastic people dotted about everywhere £300 Christmas hamper every year Decent benefits 'Power Hour' where there is a dedicated full floor training/meeting for an hour a week

    Cons

    Very target driven despite preaching about how much it isn't Little to no autonomy, you entirely rely on underwriters and managers Very micromanaged in your work- you are continually sent pipelines to maximise sales Yearly bonuses and whether you deserve one is entirely decided by your manager- various instances of favouritism Positive culture is very much dwindling here as many key leaders and members of staff have left over this last year Poor compensation for this role

    No longer a company that cares

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits, salary, location, if your chasing money then it will do as a springboard career move.

    Cons

    In more recent years it has lost the feel that it cares for its employees or customers. Recent mid level leadership changes have resulted is mid level ‘heads of’ not having a clue about the company or industry they are working in and a mass exodus from of experienced staff to rival companies and customers no longer matter other than the income they can generate.
