What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Berkshire Hathaway?

Pros

There's still team mates here who carry the values, work ethic and professional intelligence that were the cornerstone of BHSI Medical Stop Loss There's time to evaluate and return to the transparent team model that got us off the ground quickly and helped us become customer focused because we worked together as a caring unit. For the first 7 years we were encouraged to expand as professionals, help each other, title wasn't a brick wall we had to hide behind (or from) . We were driven to find the right solutions and we did that together and celebrated by commending all of the team. It was an adventure to do good for the company and team and customers.

Cons

Good people are being either driven away or fired. Hiring practices no longer about finding creative people who seek to contribute as a unit. new management wants only those who are single area specialist and dont need to understand the whole product. We are becoming a siloed business. Not learning from each other anymore and not helping each other dot every-i. Now we don't know when we did good but sure drill into each management opinion of our fails. There's lots of fails these days when before the only fails were the ones that didn't provide our customers our best. I don't feel like i'm expanding in this field anymore and i'm being slowed down because i know that i'm going to have to explain everything multiple times like i'm justifying doing what i'm very good at.

Advice to Management

We still remember what good being respected by BHSI leadership did for us all. Maybe BHSI didn't even know we were here but our leader just acted like we were a necessary part of BHSI success lol. Whatever it was it helped us be better and We miss that and we miss you all caring what we thought about what we were doing great and what we'd like to improve. We miss when were creative and a team and excited about what made BHSI a fun and high-energy work place. For those of us who are still here if we still matter take us out for a coffee most of us arent that beat up that we wont share our thoughts about the new direction. Or call a few driven out/gone people they have the least to lose and may be the most open. If the new cya above learning and hierarchy before results is what BHSI needs now honest communication will help us adjust or free up space for those who thrive in that kind of environment.

There's time to evaluate and return to the transparent team model that got us off the ground quickly and helped us become customer focused because we worked together as a caring unit.
