    Former Employee - Assistant Vice President in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Hannover RE for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Solid financials. Very interesting business model.

    Cons

    Very “hands on” HR department that appears to be running the company instead of the CEO and managers. I felt there were issues because I was over 50 and gay.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your HR strategy.

    I have been working at Hannover RE full-time

    Pros

    1. Large brand recognition as a reinsurer. 2. Narrow mandate of reinsurance only. They tend not to engage in insurance since it is not favorably looked up on by their clients. 3. Good job security. 4. 20+ vacation days. 5. Not expected after working hours.

    Cons

    1. "Old school" company with less regards to innovation. 2. Horrible payers - often 50% below market. 3. Highly bureaucratic. 4. Not women friendly - one of the board member made a remark that women are sometimes difficult to give higher responsibility since they are more expected to take care of kids. 5. Operates in Centralized fashion - German driven. They do not trust "non-German foreigners". 6. Not a good employer...

    Advice to Management

    1. Open up to "foreigners". Give larger mandates to subsidiaries and branch. 2. Improve payscales to match market. 3. Give better growth opportunities to employees.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hannover RE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A great place to work with good benefits. Some lovely people to work with German efficiency at it's finest, at least in my department anyway. They don't do anything by halves!

    Cons

    The opportunities to move up in the London office are very minimal. They will try to keep you in the same place doing the same thing for as long as they can get away with.

    Advice to Management

    You need to do more to look after the good staff in the London office. Stop ignoring the diligent workers and promoting the lazy yes-men...
