    I worked at Allianz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Various opportunities, upward mobility, good benefits

    Cons

    Allianz is buying non-American companies and then transferring American jobs to those companies to avoid being viewed as offshoring. The American side of company is very regional and managed as the personal businesses of managers. Subject to nepotism and personal connections more than skills and qualifications.


  2. "Account Technician"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits are about the only thing going for the company. The insurance is good so that makes many people stay

    Cons

    Company has been in “transition” for YEARS. Hiring people for months only to make them train people from India to basically take their job, then fire them. They will tell you that your job is safe, then the next week call you into a meeting to tell you that your job ends in 60 days and they don’t have to give you that long of a notice so you should appreciate it. They have laid off hundreds of jobs in the last couple of years due to bad business decisions. Don’t waste your time. This company has been going downhill for years and they are still laying people off!!

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest with your employees. You know in advance you are sending jobs to India. Don’t hire people just to get current work done then give them a 60 notice months after being hired saying they will no longer have a job
