    Pros

    I was lured with promises of career progression and earning potential. None of which was true.

    Cons

    Even during redundancy, when told that if going for a role in a different dept, a member of staff at risk of redundancy would have priority over another... Again, they didn't hold true to their word.
    In short, good for nothing lying waste of space.

    Advice to Management

    Try being honest?

    I worked at Allianz full-time

    Pros

    Allianz core is a great place to work.

    Cons

    AMOS pune is the pathetic place to work i have ever seen. Employees are treated like workers and beggers. Management is the full of the worst people.
    Almost 90% employees are working just because they don't get a job elsewhere.
    So if you are reading this, make sure you go somewhere else ...YES even if it's a contract job.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop treating your employees like dogs and respect them as human beings.

    Pros

    They have nice amenities, clean environment, steady hours if you are a regular employee and not a temp employee. Holidays and weekends off.

    Cons

    Difficult to work your way into regular employee status, low paying as a temp employee. Feel every day like it may be the last day of an income. Benefits are poor and very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be better to your employees. Equality goes a long way. Offer better benefits. Give people the chance to grow.


  6. good to work in Germany, questionable in some other locations

    Pros

    very stable and people oriented in Germany offices
    career development and reward procedures officially existing per best in class standards

    Cons

    treating employees differently in different countries

    low attention to leadership quality outside of headquarters makes people practices in some locations poor if not harassing

    then, all established fancy talent management procedures (org health survey, career development, reward management etc) are supported at very different levels in different countries, so, for example, person working in Russian office and German office would feel like working for 2 companies with far different cultures and people practices

    Pros

    If you have no conscience, you can earn a lot of money

    Cons

    The company has no social responsibility. The Managment, that's are rip-off artists only. Above no Pareto Principle, below only Pareto Principle. The mood in the Company is very bad.

    Advice to Management

    People at Age +/- 45 are also human. Not simply a cost factor

    Pros

    The company in the US finally has a vision that positions the lines of businesses to go to market as a single entity.

    Cons

    **Poor systems and overall IT infrastructure
    **Some managers are incompetent and shouldn't be managing people. In certain circumstances, they have an "in" with the good ol boys" club, allowing them to be managers

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ol' boys club and position people based on their true skills. The current set up cab be demoralizing and zap employees' energy.

    Pros

    Decent salary. Nice building. Gym is fantastic, nice but expensive dining facilities. Child care is also nice but expensive

    Cons

    Overall, it was a horrible working experience. Zero chance for growth or even a raise if your there under 5 years. Automatically hired on as a temp, so your basically their slave. As a temp, you seldom get work reviews, if ever. Then, with no notice, they can and frequently do fire you, and don't let you get back your personal belongings. Management is rude. Impossible to contact people in HR. completely unrealistic expectations of their employees. How they get onto Forbes top 100 places to work is beyond me and everyone else that works there!

    Advice to Management

    Lose the temp agencies, treat your employees like humans, and open your eyes to the world around you
