    I worked at Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allianz truly is a great place to work. I was never micro-managed while I worked there. I was however given a high degree of accountability with expectation that I would deliver. If you can work in a highly structured IT environment with strict policies and procedures (comes with being in the insurance / financial industry), you can be successful. I was afforded many great opportunities in my 21 years at Allianz and am grateful for their support during my career.

    Cons

    Much of the leadership in Operations is long tenured and at the time I was leaving was very divided amongst themselves with regards to strategy. Many still align to an antiquated management style inherited from leadership in the mid to late 90s. This created unique challenges between IT and Operations.
