A mass of Contradictions
Assistance Operations - London Good things - Great work done on a global scale. Good people who truly believe in what they do. Very international and a great mission - helping people. Cons.. Sadly way more on this side... International SOS is a firm that is terrified of change. They will start large internal change projects without fully funding them, or getting leadership commitment. When the initiative invariably falters there is a mad scramble at the GM and AGM level to run for cover and find someone... ANY one else to blame. The core problem with International SOS is that no one wants to be accountable for anything, They all want to say they are responsible for things, and they create massive nonsensical titles to show how important they are. If people at the GM level spent half as much time doing their their jobs as they do avoiding taking ownership of their jobs the firm would be a far different and better place. A key area is in their Systems. The two key systems they use to provide medical referrals are not able to share data, so rather than make the case for systems improvement, the people "Responsible" for solving the problem expend far more time and energy in meetings that are slow death by power point and when it is painfully clear no progress will be made, there is this massive blame game where the GM and AGM frantically attack anyone who asks questions about or suggests a different approach.

A truly Bizarre Place...
Pros Great work done on a global scale. Good people who truly believe in what they do. Cons International SOS is a firm that is terrified of change. They will start large internal change projects without fully funding them, or getting leadership commitment. When the initiative invariably falters there is a mad scramble at the GM and AGM level to run of cover and find someone... ANY one else to blame. The core problem with International SOS is that no one wants to be accountable for anything, They all want to say they are responsible for things, and they create massive nonsensical titles to show how important they are. If people at the GM level spent half as much time doing their their jobs as they do avoiding taking ownership of their jobs, the firm would be a far different and better place. Scapegoating is in the core DNA of the firm's culture. Process consistency is non existent and if there is s global process it wont apply in areas where "certain individuals" with close relationships to the firms founders simply don't want to do it. Advice to Management International SOS has had it's head stuck up it's own backside for so long, that it has gotten used to the sensation, and now believes it's supposed to be that way. You need to seriously invest in systems infrastructure and start asking a lot of your mangers at the GM level what is it that they actually DO all day? The answer right now, is clearly , not much....
Pros
Global work, Good people (mostly)
Cons
Management at AGM and GM level is beyond awful.
