    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement, especially for younger employees. Older employees tend to get slotted into a track and dead-ended.

    Cons

    Management embraces whatever the hot trend is and makes changes without consideration for unexpected consequences. Emphasis is on "One Zurich", the creation of a mythical monolithic corporate culture and the standardization of workflows across the company. This has a major downside of suppressing entrepreneurism and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core competencies and not constantly changing the organizational structure or workflow management just for the sake of change.
