    Pros

    Was challenged in the role that I had started in the company at, and able to make changes where needed to get the work done more effectively.

    Cons

    When good in one area, it was hard to move out of that area into another more challenging role.

    Advice to Management

    Let people move to another area within the company, in order to feel engaged and valued as an integral employee.

    Office politics is more like high school cliques, promises are made that aren't kept

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating good employees like horses you can whip to death.

    Pros

    When I entered the company, it was filled with skilled and sound managers. They knew the business and understood the customers they were serving in each industry sector.

    Cons

    When I departed Zurich after five years of employment, it was being managed by people who did not seem to understand the business. They wanted to show their international leadership, but instead, they lost their reach in North America.

    Pros

    Community investment is a huge priority and I love working for a company that cares so deeply for its communities.

    Cons

    My manager came from AIG and acts like it. Would prefer less micromanagement. My upper management is great, though.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within

    Pros

    Great People, Financially Stable, I'v got nothing...

    Cons

    Business Units are known for purchasing solutions before engaging IT to verify compatibility, etc..
    That's why they have to have Database engineers for 5+ different types of DB's. Getting data out of those systems into usable information takes quite a bit of effort.

    Advice to Management

    Control your business units.
