I worked at Allianz as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Decent salary. Nice building. Gym is fantastic, nice but expensive dining facilities. Child care is also nice but expensive

Cons

Overall, it was a horrible working experience. Zero chance for growth or even a raise if your there under 5 years. Automatically hired on as a temp, so your basically their slave. As a temp, you seldom get work reviews, if ever. Then, with no notice, they can and frequently do fire you, and don't let you get back your personal belongings. Management is rude. Impossible to contact people in HR. completely unrealistic expectations of their employees. How they get onto Forbes top 100 places to work is beyond me and everyone else that works there!

Advice to Management

Lose the temp agencies, treat your employees like humans, and open your eyes to the world around you

    I have been working at Allianz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits. Some fun people work here.

    Cons

    Profit sharing and 401(k) matching are 0% vested until 3 years of service. Cubicle life for everyone without a senior manager title. Most cubicles have 1.5 walls and "0" privacy. IT systems are a complete joke. Restrictions on travel and other expenses are over the top.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees more. Invest in IT.

    I worked at Allianz full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Initially, this firm was booming and growing back in 2008. In fact, this firm was doing very well while the rest of Wall Street was crumpling. Overall, the vacation days are decent, good health benefits, fairly young crowd. Work hours stick to a 9-5 parameter.

    Cons

    Very unstable, no growth or opportunity for most workers. Management don't know how to manage, there is very low or no moral. HR is almost do not exsist. There is no cohesiveness or integregration, each department is in its own world. The RIS group is ran like a muck, they do their own things, have their own cake & coffee hours.

    Advice to Management

    Management should allow growth & opportunity for your employees. They need to hire or lay off the right people, they should not lay off top, quality workers. I have seen many top, quality people get lay off. They need to wake up & smell the coffee.
