    I worked at Allianz Global Investors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture is relaxing while intellectually stimulating. Management sets clear goal but allow room for employee to work on their own pace while encouraging independent thinking.

    Cons

    A time zone that is 3 hours behind New York make it difficult for people who cover domestic equities and European equities.

    Advice to Management

    Management should have fought to keep the global and international equities products. They lost it in a Allianz restructuring which was unfortunate.
