Will be a great company in 5 years
Underwriting Consultant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 11, 2018
Lots of organizational instability. New CEO has been in place for over a year but has not been very visible internally. There's lack of transparency from upper management, it's never clear what they're thinking, working on, changing leading to rumors spreading. Watercooler culture - there's always separate conversations outside of meetings. Pay is good. There are pockets where teams are lead by great leaders, so if you're lucky, you'd be in one of those groups.
There are bright spots of positive change, it is better than it was a year ago.
Management can be much more open, create more psychological safety, have fewer meetings, be more visible, develop a consistent vision, rebuild trust, stop the rotating door of executives, be truly invested in D&I and develop a more trusting culture. I wish management would be in contact with employees more often, to let them know what's happening - even if it's still a work in progress or to at least tell us there's still work being done. When you sit on a floor with SVPS and over yet you rarely see them --- it makes them not approachable.
