    Would not want to work again !

    Semi Senior Management (Former Employee) Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsDescent paymaster. Hard think of anything else.

    ConsManagement is not driven by level of expertise and effort brought in, rather by where you come from! No acknowledgement of hard work. Bureaucracy and politics at its peak where threads reaching HQs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompletely change the very top management and bring in competent team leader, who really understands the business and turn this place to business than House of Lords.

    A very employee-centric company with high levels of integrity and also values.

    Manager (Current Employee) Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    ProsThe treatment of the staff by the HR is excellent and a good demonstration of it's caring ethos towards the staff though the same cannot be said of the management of the company.

    ConsLong working hours and a very demanding place - which at times may compromise your work-life balance. The compensation may be fair but the bonus payout leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelook at the ratio of male-female workforce - this may yet impact on the overall morale of the staff, particularly those on the mid management side.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI'm talking from the agent's perspective so emplyed staffs, sorry. Good communication between the top management and the employee especially the agency force. Takes feedbacks seriously and the processing of the paper works andclaims are efficient too, though sometimes there are cocks up but a few bugging on the phone will get it done in no time.

    ConsAgent's perspective: Sell or you eat peanuts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAgent perspective as usual, should have general insurance products lineups and a basic pay as other companies are poaching away agents with attractive basic + comms packages.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Loss Leader

    Regional Director (Current Employee) Central District (Hong Kong)

    ProsThey buy you a dinner at Christmas if you make the top 50 list ..otherwise it's rice and water....

    ConsManagement is by Aliens who do things quite strangely, and people vanish all the time for no apparent reason. Other people quit for no apparent reason other than they are fed up with their friends / work counterparts being treated like wankers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould bring back the man from PRU concept and show some flair rather than Machiavellian BS and keeping people looking over their shoulder daily. Stop being introverted BS'ers and learn how to work in the current world. Use less consultants and trust internal people who are hired to do the job.
