  1.  

    Consulting Intern

    Former Employee - Consultant (Summer)
    Former Employee - Consultant (Summer)

    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.
