    I have been working at Allianz full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and compensation, congenial work environment, employee and customer focus.

    Cons

    Being a German company, requires odd work hours at times when there is a need to be on calls with counter parts in Europe, some disconnects between Munich and US locations.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bridge differences in culture between US and Europe.

    I have been working at Allianz full-time

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy at the desk level. Coworkers & management are great.

    Cons

    Workload is too high which causes too much stress & turnover

    Better balance of pending levels is needed

    I worked at Allianz full-time

    Pros

    The front-line associates are treated like royalty by the SLT because if they score the company high on the annual survey, the company can post the stats and win awards for best places to work. The work is easy for the pay

    Cons

    There are absolutely NO African American Directors at the company because the promotions are given out to "favorites" and brown-nosers, not hard workers. You have Black managers that have been with the company for years and receive above average/excellent performance reviews but somehow don't qualify to move up in the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the SLT is to take a close look at why your manager turnover is higher than your competitors and other companies in the Richmond area. It's because your VP's are bullies and if you say anything or make any suggestions that she/they don't agree with, you are considered on the "hit list" and those people mysteriously end up gone from the company in less than a month!

    I worked at Allianz full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None since Allianz took over the smaller company I worked for. Became increasingly intrusive until they took over everything.

    Cons

    Allianz as a company treats people poorly. People aren't individuals, they are drones to serve the cause.

    Advice to Management

    Get some smart people to work for you in management positions.

    Pros

    Good vacation and benefits (a bit expensive)

    Cons

    If you're not someone's favorite, you're pretty much out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and fix the systems that are very outdated.
