    I have been working at Allianz full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Trainig was good for starting out in the industry. Most the staff was friendly until you get to management.

    Cons

    Much of a 'who you know' culture. Systems were horrible and pay was below industry average.

    Consulting Intern

    Former Employee - Consultant (Summer)
    Former Employee - Consultant (Summer)

    I worked at Allianz as an intern

    Pros

    You will get extremely involved with what is actually going on (you're not just grabbing coffee and the errand boy). However that means you get a lot of the busy work and taking on multiple projects. Your powerpoint skills go through the roof. Allianz likes their powerpoints a very distinct way and is ingrained in their culture to have flawless decks.

    Cons

    The irritability of the upper management about how specific everything must be. Veering away from the set way of doing things is not accepted or tolerated.

    working experience in GBSN

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Allianz

    Pros

    good working environment, friendly people, very helpful supervisor. a moderate company which provide a good ground for junior to learn a lot of and gain a lot of hand on experiences. Great working culture and strong bonding between colleagues.

    Cons

    Since it is a moderate company in size, the system is not as well developed yet, a lot of maintenance on going which often slow down working progress.

    Pros

    Great office culture, great support by team members and great learning experience.

    Location outside of city center but awesome building and awesome facilities, so I'm not even sure it's a con:) Big group, red tape could prove hard to deal with sometimes

    Pros

    friendly environment, great support from management to develop your career, very respectful. Exchange within the Group is a good chance to learn different aspects from the insurance industry as Allianz not only offers life insurance but also non-life insurance and asset management solutions.

    Cons

    salary is not that competitive, slow decision making and aging technology.

    Pros

    Does everything at a large scale and currently is globalizing topics; Very often working on the forefront of technology and trying to constantly improve; always challenging the status quo; working with top tier suppliers

    Cons

    Extremely bureaucratic processes that slow everything down while at the same time senior management put a lot of pressure on organization to speed up; very political place; does not care about long-term talent development, rather brings in people from external
