    I worked at Towergate Insurance

    Pros

    None at all come to mind.

    Cons

    Quite the worst company I have ever encountered in any capacity.

    Advice to Management

    They don't need advice and wouldn't take it anyway. The company will be bankrupt within a year. They are desperately trying to sell it at the moment and unsurprisingly there are no takers. It is a complete basket case.

    I worked at Towergate Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company Christmas party was of a high standard. This is the only positive I can say about the company

    Cons

    Where to start.... - Provided no training at all but expected to have a prior knowledge of everything and chastised when making mistakes -Overworked to an unrealistic deadline causing stress and opening the potential for making mistakes I worked in Accounts which required a lot of manual data entry. This could end up being over 200 pages of commission which would be expected to be done by the end of the day. No one...

    Advice to Management

    The fact that so many people have left your company in the entire year I was there must speak volumes in terms of how bad a company you are to work for.

    Don't underestimate the skill set of your middle management team.

    I have been working at Towergate Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Pay is decent, commission is also a nice bonus. - Laid back attitude in the office, but I must admit that this will depend on the people you work with so it's not a Towergate pro per se. - Coffee and tea at your disposal. - Opportunity for further training, various courses or accrediatations you can apply for. The trainers themselves are actually quite nice and helpful people. - Some employees are well...

    Cons

    - The company insists on all customer services values but when it comes down to it all they seem to care about is the money. People who perform on their target are rewarded even if their behaviour is non-compliant while others will be taxed if they perform very well on everything apart from their target. - Management comes off as very unapproachable. Won't give you the time of the day unless your're part of a certain...

    Advice to Management

    Review your day to day procedures as they are outdated and could be improved. Office management should also be more open to discussion and approachable. Should also review what you really care about in day to day business rather than giving mixed signals to your staff as questionable behaviour keeps getting rewarded as long as money is coming in. There have been occasions when management has actually been insulting...
