    Fantastic place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Guildford, England (UK)

    ProsHave worked for Allianz for 7 years and cannot speak highly enough of the company. For me it's more than a job, it's somewhere I feel valued and actively enjoy spending time. First and foremost Allianz cares about its people; there are incomparable training and development opportunities for staff and in 7 years I have never once been denied a training request. Wellbeing is a key topic and Allianz allows employees 10 hours paid leave per year to undertake a volunteering activity of their choice. The benefits are excellent; from discounted insurance policies to discounted gym membership, a dry cleaning service on site and numerous other facilities. There is an active Sports and Social club and a robust Reward and Recognition scheme. The culture at Allianz is extremely friendly and many staff have either worked here for years or left and returned to the company - a strong indictment of what a great company it is to work for. The Graduate Schemes are well organised and allow our graduates unrivalled opportunities in training and qualification. Above all, I enjoy coming to work each day and count myself lucky in this respect.

    ConsNot always the fastest paced environment to work in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe have a wonderful company which the majority of employees feel extremely proud to work for. We just need to encourage a more experimentative and innovative culture to ensure we keep pace (or indeed keep ahead) of our competitors.

    Probably the best company to work for in Paris

    Claims Adjuster (Former Employee) Paris (France)

    ProsThey offer great compensation, benefits and career opportunities. Not to mentoin that this is one of the hottest insurance company on the market.

    ConsThe environment is not great. You have to make the trip to La Defense every day and it can be a pain.
