I have been working at Zurich North America full-time (More than 3 years)
Been with this company for several years and the group morale is amazing. Everyone works great as a team and the benefits are pretty good. The healthcare isn't the best, but the starting pay is so worth it. They offered so much more than I asked for and thousands more than anything else in the area. The yearly bonus is great too. About 5% of your pay will be given as a bonus every April. Stick with this company and you'll really be enjoying your career.
Upper management doesn't even notice you're there. They won't come around and talk to you AT ALL. They avoid the "little people" and just care about their back pocket.
Advice to Management
Micromanagement isn't the way to go. Let the employees do their job and trust them to do it right.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America.
Had an initial call with HR, then interview with managers, and interview with director of operations. The interviews were quite lengthy. After the interviews HR completed the background check (before indicating there was an offer) and it took a few weeks. They needed to hear back from everyone you ever worked for, every school you attended, etc. They would call back with the status (i.e. We are waiting to hear from___ before we can move on). After the background check was complete they called to extend an offer and asked for me to start in two weeks.
