      Great culture and perks

      Pros

      I am a full-time remote employee based out of Dublin. Started at GW during the pandemic but the onboarding process was smooth. The company culture atleast in the Dublin side seems to be great. Decent compensation, decent perks, and overall a good place to work. Very flexible work patterns.

      Cons

      Remote culture still needs a lot of work. There are few opportunities for team interaction if you're not office-based or not in the same time zone as your team. Insurance is a slow industry and this reflects in the growth opportunities and appetite for change within the company.

      Positive Experience w/ Employer

      Sep 7, 2021 - Consultant II in Dublin, Dublin

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Positive work environment, all staff including management both friendly and approachable. Good opportunities to move within the organisation.

      Cons

      Location is relatively far outside the city center (Dublin) with so-so public transport links. The company's tech stack will not leave you with many transferable skills - application is customized with Gosu and a custom front end editor. Can leave you somewhat pigeonholed as a result if this is your first job out of college.

      Pros

      Can't think of any pros.

      Cons

      Highly toxic. If you have no other job, and can't find any, better to be unemployed than joining this.
