    • Culture & Values
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at PartnerRe

    Pros

    Great workplace culture, tons of flexibility, and closeness among employees. Conducive to a great work environment. Had a wonderful supervisor.

    Cons

    The year-end period calls for long, stressful hours for a few months, but it is made up for by the lower stress and flexibility of the rest of the year.

      I have been working at PartnerRe part-time

      Pros

      Medium sized company with some interesting work and opportunities. International company with many different cultures.

      Cons

      Boys' club culture with limited accountability; no strong leaders with clear and inspiring vision.

      Advice to Management

      Start hiring/promoting technical people without people management skills. Stop asking us to give feedback on the culture when you don't actually want to listen.

      Pros

      Interesting business with very good compensation that is being reduce under private ownership. International culture with fundamentally good people.

      Cons

      Technically good management team but most with appalling people management and communication skills as well as lack of willingness to make decisions and take responsibilities. Limited career development paths. Team work not valued.

      Advice to Management

      Practice what you preach, if you really want the company to have the culture and values you believe are fundamental to the future of the company.
