Pros

Global Footprint. The people you work with generally tend to be good people and you can build solid professional and personal relationships with them.

Cons

Poor IT systems. Company does not hire enough people to handle the work. Impossible to get anything done because overly bureaucratic and risk averse. You need to get too many people to sign off or approve on something and it hurts business and relationships. Senior Management spends too much time trying to put out a friendly face as opposed to understanding the issues their people face and doing something about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop asking people about what is wrong with Zurich and start doing something about it. Hire more people and put them in areas where their skill sets will be the most valuable.

    I worked at Zurich North America as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was new to the field and the other employees took time out of their day to explain the ins and outs of what they do and how it affects the overall business. This gave me a great mindset to do my particular job since I could see all the different cogs in motion.

    Cons

    I was only an intern but I wanted to continue my time there after the program expired, unfortunately the corporate office doesn't permit that.
