Pros

Corp. balance sheet. Able to u/w international to large contractors. Company is filled with vast industry experts who have been u/w surety for 30 to 40 years. Decentralized corporate structure with high local underwriting authority to make deals happen quickly and get new business.

Cons

Internal IT systems/ infrastructure far behind industry standards and competitor. Limited upper mobility for yournger workers. Overly aggressive growth targets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes no growth is the best risk mitigator.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Stable company

    Cons

    After two years you will still not understand the pay plan. Regional managers only micro manage and do ZERO to coach and develop front line field staff

    Very long and exhausting interviewing and onboarding process

    Held very highly accountable for exceeding goals without getting the necessary resourses to accomplish these goals

    Growth goals are set each year and can be unrealistic

    Job security

    No loyalty from management and Regional Managers will use front line field staff as the fall guy for their own personal failures and lack of production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tried before I left, and got no response so it is unlikely they will care any more by seeing it here.

    Pros

    Global Footprint. The people you work with generally tend to be good people and you can build solid professional and personal relationships with them.

    Cons

    Poor IT systems. Company does not hire enough people to handle the work. Impossible to get anything done because overly bureaucratic and risk averse. You need to get too many people to sign off or approve on something and it hurts business and relationships. Senior Management spends too much time trying to put out a friendly face as opposed to understanding the issues their people face and doing something about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop asking people about what is wrong with Zurich and start doing something about it. Hire more people and put them in areas where their skill sets will be the most valuable.
