    I have been working at Allianz full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Work Life Balance
    Unbeatable 401K match
    If you like to travel, you get to see different part of the world (and since most of the offices are in the business district, you would travel to metropolitan, urban setting)
    You get to learn a lot

    Cons

    -Politics; German vs US approach, NY vs Chicago vs Munich vs [whatever office location], could be unending, tiring, and honestly petty
    -We are big (although limited brand recognition in the US), however we are little bit of everything and it is difficult to make meaningful changes unless you are the top mgt or close to their circle (but see my point above)
    -If you are not in the circle, good luck in getting their attention. Tried so many times to get their time to talk only to be rebuffed. Best example was when I made a special day trip to NY only to see (one of) my boss across the hall walking to washroom and I got a waived of recognition :-)
    -For a company this big, I am surprised at how limited the opportunity I can get the more I move up. At times, the message I got is rather conflicting: "You are too expensive", "You may not have the expertise", or "Development is your responsibility so you figure it out your own" or sometimes I got no response whatsoever. Keep in mind, I step up when my predecessor got let go, grew the team, integrated the team w/ Fireman's Fund, participated successfully in Navigator, DDI training for Executives, etc. It's astonishing how the accomplishments meant nothing or how much support not received when I wanted to learn more.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the aspiration to grow, but we are losing our focus by trying to be a little bit of everything. Also, not that this is big news, but if you want to retain good talent, well might want to dare to take chances. I have proven over and over that I qualified, but in reality I'm still not good enough.
