      Current Employee

      Great pay, great environment, upper management not so in touch

      6 Jan 2021 - Service Desk Agent in Folkestone, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Awesome company to work for, compensation for work done is amazing comparative to elsewhere and the feedback culture has the potential to be great

      Cons

      Upper management can seem a little out of touch at times, expecting more without adjusting the goal posts to compensate. Feedback culture can sometimes feel a little pointless as not everyone takes feedback well and management can sometimes seem a little hands off with this when you ask for them to help out with particular issues. Depending on your department and location, career prospects could be great or non-existent

      I work within IT; training at Swiss Re is frequent and relevant and opportunities to develop are always available. The recent global pandemic had no effect on my work, as business continuity allows me to work from home.

      Cons

      In my experience, no cons to working at Swiss Re!

      Irregular provider

      9 Sep 2020 - Administrative in London, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      No actual pros are worth mentioning

      Cons

      HR have no understanding on how they should be compliant with. Standard email with no feedback getting sent but no way of finding out what went wrong. As they are a so called company it implies that they are hiding things and maybe the lockdown might find out what they have been up to. Also turning people down for a job does not state that their details are held secure as I imagine they are potentially selling on mobile numbers or emails direct to third party as no confirmation that the details are safe.
