Pros

They do Promote from within. Many people have worked there twenty plus years.

Cons

If you are pushing 50, you are not going to advance. There seems to be a movement towards young (upper 30's to low 40's SENIOR leadership. Many of them have never been in management positions, then suddenly are VP's. Very discouraging for quality workers below.

Advice to Management

Too many games and parties for a serious financial services company. We try to project professionalism, but then there is a BINGO event, or a cake walk

    This was my perfect job, and I have nothing negative to say about Allianz.

    Pros

    Great Location Good Pay Fun Summer Activities Nice Cafeteria and Food Options Fun Overall Atmosphere Very Thorough Orientation Some Opportunity for Personal Growth

    Cons

    Anyone who wants to be an actuarial intern here should be prepared for an unreasonably intense, political battle royale for a full-time offer. Many managers here have high egos and can't resist talking about how much better they are at Allianz than their competitors. One of the hiring managers is really awkward and you'll know who I'm talking about when you meet him. Some of the managers act as though they don't want to be dealing with an intern. Good luck getting an offer if you have a manager like that. As for the actual work itself, basically you are an overpaid computer programmer not really doing anything actuarial or learning anything other than automation in VBA, so have fun describing your "actuarial" experience in your interviews with other companies when you don't get an offer here because you didn't play their politics and actually wanted to get work done and develop yourself instead.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the hostile, overly competitive atmosphere, and instead create one that promotes learning and growth. Ensure that the managers have good social skills because if they don't have them, they shouldn't manage anybody. Make sure the actuarial interns do more actuarial work than technical work. Also, I think that upper management does a great job, it's the actuarial managers that contributed to the weaknesses of my experience.
