    Pros

    Benefits are great, and start the day you start. Nice people for the most part.

    Cons

    Too many managers play favorites and fraternize with people looking to get ahead (and they usually do), lack of integrity in upper management. HR is of no help at all and rules are different for everyone--all depends on if you are a member of their little "club".

    Advice to Management

    Feedback given several times over by many employees for several years. Nothing changes and nothing is really anonymous like they say it is. They talk a big talk, but it is all a smokescreen.

    Pros

    Cafeteria, co workers, benefits, great parties, awesome work life balance

    Cons

    Management, outdated systems, training, they fail to train you properly and then jump to reprimand you when you do something wrong. Recognition is not common. You are not creating any money for the company working in the call center, so there is little to no patience for mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training and coaching, that can make a world of difference for a new employee with great potential

    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 Management

    Keep up the good work.

    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.

    I worked at Allianz as an intern

    Pros

    You will get extremely involved with what is actually going on (you're not just grabbing coffee and the errand boy). However that means you get a lot of the busy work and taking on multiple projects. Your powerpoint skills go through the roof. Allianz likes their powerpoints a very distinct way and is ingrained in their culture to have flawless decks.

    Cons

    The irritability of the upper management about how specific everything must be. Veering away from the set way of doing things is not accepted or tolerated.

    Pros

    Does everything at a large scale and currently is globalizing topics; Very often working on the forefront of technology and trying to constantly improve; always challenging the status quo; working with top tier suppliers

    Cons

    Extremely bureaucratic processes that slow everything down while at the same time senior management put a lot of pressure on organization to speed up; very political place; does not care about long-term talent development, rather brings in people from external
