    Good benefits but not good place for cutting edge analytics

    Princeton, NJ

    ProsThe company offers above avergae benefits, good work place. The work pace can be hectic but generally there is not too much pressure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote a creative working environment where people can think out of the box. Do not fear change for the better.

    I was an actuarial analyst there for a summer internship program.

    Beijing, Beijing (China)

    ProsMy manager is very nice. He taught me many things about actuaries and life. Colleagues are friendly, and I felt very comfortable working there.

    ConsBecause it is a Germany company, it is very conservative. Also, there are many senior people in insurance company.

    Incredible, generous employer, but still needs to learn about modern people management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Sydney (Australia)

    ProsThe small things the company does are wonderful, hampers at Christmas, fruit delivered to our floors each day, and mostly really good, smart people to work with.

    ConsOnly just coming to terms with broader application of flexibility, real concerns about lack of visibility of staff, despite them delivering results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your team but don't be scared to ask them what they are doing, you're the manager!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
