    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Munich Re full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good package with nice employee benefits. Safe job. Good worklife balance. Somehow (but not really) international. People with multiple backgrounds.

    Cons

    To belong to the right network is more important than skills ("old boys club"). Many managers are more focused on their own agenda than on client's and company's interest. Conservative. Slow decision making. Little degree of delegation, many people try to avoid responsibilty. Too much self-adulation.
