I have been working at Zurich Insurance Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Truly global company which offers many global work opportunities. High level of expertise in the company.

Cons

HR processes are not well controlled. Individual managers have a lot of power and can determine what happens with employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better control and standard processes in place so employees are treated equally and fairly. Take advantage of the talent you have in the company and significantly reduce the complexity and internal politics.

    I worked at Zurich Insurance Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Good compensation benefits and opportunities to grow within the company (via both promotions and courses)
    - Some excellent colleagues

    Cons

    - Some incompetent, unpleasant, false 'Peter Principle' line managers
    - HR will not hold them to task
    - Compliance do not have the power to hold HR to task

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Practice what you preach as your supposed corporate values seem like mere aspirations; substanceless words firmly grounded in fiction

    I worked at Zurich Insurance Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very international, with opportunities to work with some good people

    Cons

    Very political, and some poor behaviour from Managers. Not enough communication from HR which can be misleading and result in employees becoming worse off when transferring jobs. Need to check everything carefully to see what HR are doing. Performance Management System is not adding value. Constant restructuring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be direct and honest with matters related to staff
