    Pros

    Allianz is a great place to work. They believe in treating their employees fair and present them with opportunities to climb the corporate ladder and promote within.

    Cons

    The shifts are not forty hours per week. The insurance is not costly however it's not one of the state's better plans for the number of people working there.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice for management. I believe my manager does a great job with our team and keeping us wanting to come back every day.

    Pros

    The people really practice the company credo of "be true in everything you do". Not only are the people authentic, but they are caring, considerate, intelligent, positive, and great to work with.

    Cons

    While the organization is HUGE globally, there may be limited opportunities in some career paths depending on your willingness and ability to move around. If you're a dynamic individual that knows how to leverage your skills into different areas of the business, you can easily overcome that obstacle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. It's a great place to work!

    Pros

    The finance organization is a very fun and close knit group. There are at least 2 full day social events per year and also quarterly meetings with a few hours of social event tossed in. The company is very stable and secure. The company is very generous with travel around the world if you want to.

    Cons

    There are some questionalble promotions. Since this place was basically built by poaching people from other insurance companies, they hired those who could not advance at prior firms. Thus, many of the managers, although very competent workers, are terrible managers in terms of managing, hiring the right people, organizing and delegating tasks, and fairness to all employees under their watch.

    Advice to Management

    Management has made this a very good, fun place to work. Salarys seem competitve, and there are very often town hall and other social events. The company definately cares about its people and show it.
