    I have been working at Allianz full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in a global environment has been a great experience for me. I've learned a lot in my 3 years and a lot of that has to do with the diversity of colleagues I have the privilege of working with.

    Cons

    Working in a global environment tends to slow down large scale projects and removes some of the decision making ability from the various regions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Allianz full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people really practice the company credo of "be true in everything you do". Not only are the people authentic, but they are caring, considerate, intelligent, positive, and great to work with.

    Cons

    While the organization is HUGE globally, there may be limited opportunities in some career paths depending on your willingness and ability to move around. If you're a dynamic individual that knows how to leverage your skills into different areas of the business, you can easily overcome that obstacle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing. It's a great place to work!

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