    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Insurance Australia Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of learning and development opportunities for staff. Flexible working culture.

    Cons

    Too frequent organisational restructures! In my short tenure of 2.5 years here, I have seen about 4 of them already. Technologically they lag quite behind other players of the same size. Too much of inter-team politics, teams just handballing problems to one another. If someone is looking to join IAG in technical teams, be prepared to work on legacy technologies. Pay is just average.

    Advice to Management

    Optimise processes Only technology portfolio modernisation won't work by itself, you'll need to train and enable the workforce to see things differently and act accordingly.
