      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Salary was reasonable and offices are nice

      Cons

      In the past few years MS Amlin has totally lost its way, in a desperate attempt to recover it’s spent millions on consultants and senior hires to try and turn the tide. During this time, genuinely talented people have left the company (both voluntarily and involuntarily), the already under-developed/invested technology estate has been crippled by a woeful IT outsource and the core business has completely lost its identify through a confusing and nonsensical strategy. As an overhang from the latter, Amlin Business Services clings on in a pathetic attempt to justify its own existence - they even have their own CEO, it’s hilarious.

      Pros

      Lots of investment in infrastructure, first rate benefits package and renumeration, top of the line hardware and software.

      Too much administration, too many people who love to talk but deliver very little, IT Security is so tight its impossible to do the job you're paid to do and HR have completely dropped the ball in term of recruitment, on-boarding, PDRs, etc.

    8. 4.0
      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      An exciting company with a lot of potential

      Jan 18, 2021 - Software Engineer in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ability to work from home, excellent benefits package, high quality offices, a clear company vision, a clear strategy within the ABS division and my manager is one of the best managers I’ve ever had.

      Cons

      The outsourced IT support is impossible to live with. There are too many days when I cannot do my job because I don’t have the permissions or the software that I need. Also, a firm push towards a virtual environment is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for Software Engineers.

      Truly awful company...

      Feb 3, 2021 - IT Project Manager in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nice enough people; nice office

      Cons

      Where to start - completely uninspiring executive team with no compelling vision; awful IT systems and service providers; staff raise problems and concerns rather than solutions to divert attention from the fact they don't actually do much of anything (actually they're frantically busy just spinning their wheels appearing to be productive), and in the self-deluded belief they are helping or adding value; so much deadwood as a result of no real performance management of staff = poor performers in senior roles; too much governance and paperwork = barriers to improvement; like many City firms pays lip service to diversity - no visible BAME; disabled or LGBTQ+ execs....this organisation is a basket case.
