I have been working at Zurich North America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good people and a friendly atmosphere, flexibility in work hours and location, compensation adequate, nice bonus program, good work / life balance.

Cons

Upper management well detached from reality of what goes on in the field. IT is a nightmare. Sysytems do not communicate with each other and new systems are worse than the old ones.

Advice to Management

Get a clue on what is really important.

    I have been working at Zurich North America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Zurich is a large global organization with very good brand recognition. This company is easy to get in but negotiate well as salary increases are 3%. Bonus program is fair to middle compared to other companies. Headquarter management is focused on the business.

    Cons

    American upper management conseives new strategies frequently with good intentions but middle and lower management struggle to understand implementation. Lower level only sees requirements to cut expenses this year and then next year increase productivity . Workload was never below 130%. Select few may win favoritisim but most just happy to be employed. Put5 and get everything in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a strategy and stick to it. Same for programs and databases. Monitor middle and lower management and encourage feedback from all employees. Seek out employees with potential before other companies do. Improve and expand training to be competitive with peers.

    I worked at Zurich North America full-time

    Pros

    Zurich provides a pretty good employee benefits package including 401k match from day 1, tuition reimbursement, generous time off, employee assistance programs, flex start times, summer hours, and alternative work arrangements for unusual schedules like school, kids, etc.

    Cons

    The performance reviews are based on a bell curve. There must always be employees in your department that receive a rating of below expectations, meets expectations, or exceeds expectations. The health benefits have high deductibles and line management is skeptical on personal development.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure communication by senior management is received by all departments. Specifically the communication to all line management staff regarding educational tools and books that help develop themselves as leaders . This was blatantly ignored in my department.
