    I worked at Allianz full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Flexible. Bonus based on specific, measureable performance factors. Very experienced personnel.

    Cons

    Market Management has a growing influence & they do not contribute to the bottom line. Growing the layers of management, used to be more stream-lined company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on Market Management to limit expenses. Cut out layers of managers.

  6.  

    One of the best companies to work for.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Allianz

    Pros

    Known for their best HR practices, employee engagement and career growth. Diverse work culture, extra curricular activities, Flexy timings etc are other attributes

    Cons

    Mostly BPO in nature. Hence the stability of the company depends a lot on stability of the industry. There are hardly any more cons to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on going the same way..

    Pros

    Multicultural and team working environment, good work-life balance, you get in touch with all the other interns and working students during a "student lunch" organised every 2 weeks, but also with upper management with a monthly department lunch

    Cons

    No job opportunities at an entry-level position, rough competition concerning the intern position (only 2 positions available each year), long "quiet period" during summertime
