    Great co-workers, lots of company events, decent work place culture, decent benefits, okay work life balance, some what flexible scheduling options

    low pay, micro management, management sometimes seems to receive less training than those they supervise, chain of command problems etc

    MORE TRAINING. Don't make employees go to 5 different people for a straight answer on policy and procedure. Learn your line of business.

    I worked at Allianz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, stock, some aspects of the work environment / facilities / perks

    Cons

    Like being on a freight train in the fog headed nowhere. Weird contradictory work environment. Things look healthy and promising one day and completely toxic the next. Management and peers tend to throw one another under the bus. Some upper management very dynamic and inspired but it doesn't trickle down properly. Much of the corporate culture is a phony facade. Antiquated systems and processes that will never get fixed or improved. Loud chaotic open environment workspaces. In my humble opinion it would be best of Germany almost completely absorbed or even dissolved most of the American operations here.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Nobody with any intelligence is buying it

    Pros

    Great pay, including weekend and shift differentials. Lots of overtime. Good benefits

    Cons

    Very very mundane, boring work. Short breaks. Angry callers that your supervisor wont let you forward to them. Airlines forward angry callers to you when they don't want to deal with them.

    -good pay

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Have some fun eh? Hire people instead of keeping them on as contractors for years on end. If you care for your people, prove it!

    I worked at Allianz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Benefits
    2. Paid on time
    3. A (really ) small smattering of the employees are friendly and helpful

    Cons

    This place is toxic. AGCS in US is primarily made up of ex FFIC employees who at best can be described as incompetent. I mean it needs special skills to be merged with a firm that’s 1/10th of what you were at your peak. AGCS Munich and London is comprised of “management” who only need the next scapegoat.

    Advice to Management

    Stop referring to yourself as leaders. At best you are bullies. And seriously , when hiring , make it known that you are looking for highly political individuals who can work with you in throwing people under the bus.
