      Pros

      Diversity, Management Transparency, work from home opportunities for those that prefer it, Rejection of Chubb buyout-Thank you!! Great supervisor and team support! Many opportunities within the company.

      Cons

      Recent restructure of claims handling responsibilities requiring senior level work load without a pay/tier adjustment. Forcing employees (who are not interested) into litigation roles with little training/heavy workload/No pay increase.

      Management very calm and collective which echoes down the whole chain of command. Company is ambitious and going places. Lots of good benefits and summer working hours.

      Cons

      Whilst benefits are good, headcount seems to be low. Some areas need more resource.

      Pros

      Good company to work for. Flexible working. Ability to contribute to change in the team. Good bonuses and pay rises.

      Cons

      Seemed to be a lot of promoting to senior management of internal staff that were there the longest and were "yes" men rather than the most qualified.
