I worked at Zurich Insurance Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

ZFS Corporate Center nicely located near the old city right by the lake. Well equipped gym and spa available for free. Great cantine. Generally nice and well educated people. People working hard and long hours, doing their best to compensate for the organizational imaturity in certain areas. Good compensation.

Cons

Partially messy processes, outdated and unreliable IT and a vast "management by escalation" culture.

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO
