    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits - bonuses and overtime, bus ticket refund, training ( they pay for further education) Sports and Social Club and Employee Health and well being events, excellent canteen, co-workers became my friends! I was really sorry to leave but I had to return home for personal reasons.

    Cons

    not many ... you have to work hard but day flies! Huge focus on customer and delivering superior service at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing - new employees every week great to see!

    I have been working at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money, healthcare, is a growing company so there are opportunities

    Cons

    Terrible Management at all levels, Lying, Harassment over non essential thing, Micromanagement, Bullying, hypocrisy, No ethical behavior or even intelligent behavior shown by management to the employees. I assume it depends on the immediate manager. But it seems to stem from the top. Very two Tier, hierarchical organisation all about people manipulation
    CEO likes to personally tell all new hires how it founded the company, it's rubbish, even the company website contradicts it. Mid management come across as craven bullies.
    If you little empathy and lots of ambition, you can advance in the company. Just don't believe what people tell you and make sure you read everything you sign. Illness is very much frowned upon often litigiously so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people who work for you.

    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Financial Benefits , Private Healthcare

    Cons

    -micromanaged
    -very little opportunities to move internally, lack of progression and promotion
    -discrimination- women having kids are excluded from promotion/progression
    -bullying, harassment on daily basis
    -policies& procedures set up by HR not being reflected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be good if the management would respect their employees, would recognize diversity that HR talks about in their policies and should stop lying to people.

    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It pays a wage on time, annual Christmas party with free bar until around 2am.

    Cons

    There is on going bullying across all departments at AWC, HR clearly ignores it and tries to brush it under the carpet. I worked there for a year and a half so I've given the company long enough to show their benefits but I've given up after the manager aggressively pushed me off the edge.

    As soon as they hear you are leaving management ignores you for the whole period notice. Company notice period policy is 2 months thus it is hard for you to find another role quickly. They make you do the whole 2 months notice even if you have holidays left to take.

    They try and make it out they provide lots of training but they make it clear that you have to sign a contract in agreement to stay longer in the company to repay that benefit or that they will take every cent off your last wage.
    They advertise other job opportunities across the other departments but they will not let you go to the other departments if you are good at what you do already. They will fail your interview and say you don't have the necessary expertise to do the job.

    They have a "subsidised canteen" but its not much cheaper than the spar across the road.
    There is nothing around the area except a Spar and a gym in which you have to pay for almost full price. They offer a 10% discount but the gym membership is higher than other gyms around the area anyway.

    Pregnancy is frowned upon, as soon as they hear you are pregnant you are ignored for the rest of the time you are there until you leave for maternity. They don't pay maternity unless you are 3 years permanent in the company. And only pay twice. Be prepared if you plan to have 3 kids while working for them. They will not pay you after second time.

    Overtime is common - no appreciation for working overtime but you do it in order to complete the task, no flexible time is allowed across board. Flexi/shift time only applies to Claims/Helpline department. you don't want to work for that department it's robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some form of anti bullying measure, there is none right now.

    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good location, good package, stable

    Cons

    Poor, ineffective, inexperienced senior executive team who have grown up in the place. Narcissistic and autocratic management style. Little career progression as senior staff unless you are willing to stamp on the head of others to get where u want to go. Cliques and lack of trust throughout. Bad enough at senior level, can't imagine what it's like In more junior roles. Clear message of do it our way or get lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, and get yourselves some new leaders who know what they are doing. Stop playing lip service to culture when you really don't care.

    Pros

    Well paid, due to the constant growing many opportunities, courses provided, pension scheme, health insurance, great work colleagues

    Cons

    As this is a highly successful company there is a lot to do. Not really a cons, actually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on going, enter new markets and new products

    Claims

    Former Employee - Claims Officer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Former Employee - Claims Officer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good team to work with, stable company to work for, well established reputation internationally so great experience to have when looking to move on and apply somewhere else, opportunities to learn and develop within the health insurance field.

    Cons

    In certain departments, claims included, work-life balance is not balanced well. Long working hours, under pressurized and repetitive activity, after a while it becomes hard to pull through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are ways to improve the overall working condition, which in turn would increase the benefit for the organization if the top down approach is eliminated. There are smart and energetic people that, if given the opportunity, would make a great contribution.

    I worked at Allianz Worldwide Care full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Progressive salary increases, travel allowance or contribution towards your own car insurance.

    Cons

    Useless middle management doing all the dirty job, at a certain stage of your career you come to realise that there are so many hindrances, which cannot be overcome, that you start behaving like most of the staff there. Backstabbing and leaving colleagues to deal with your own workload so that targets can be reached become the norm after a while working there and nobody seems to care much about it. Bullying is a daily activity you are subjected to and HR seem to be well aware of it, but prefer to turn a blind eye as they are too busy making sure that you are wearing the right shoes, that your skirt is long enough for a business environment and so on. Team leaders in my department used to go around the office to make sure that everybody was wearing business clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obsolete master-slave relationship model, which is no longer in use since the industrial revolution, you need to value your staff and treat them fairly.

    Pros

    You have a job and get a salary.

    Cons

    Extreme micro management, you need to tell the management in the morning if you expect a call during the day, management tells you when to go home, pressure all the time, CEO is out of his minds, no interest in employees. Management is laughed at.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at how our HQ in germany is run and listen to your employees
