    Pros

    The pay for an intern position was a good rate. I was given a number of responsibilities on a project and was working side by side with senior employees. My input was listened to on the team and regarded well, which may not be the case typically for an intern position in a group with mostly senior employees.

    Cons

    The work place environment seemed to deteriorate during the time that I was there. There was a lack of morale amongst employees which seemed mostly due to a lack of trust in the leadership. Employees seemed bitter about leadership decisions and didn't believe re-organization efforts would benefit the company or fix the root problems.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time into employees so they feel included and heard even during the difficult times.

    Pros

    Allianz SE is a great company trying to make presence in the US. I enjoy being a part of that. Allianz Life needs a lot of work, but I believe it's headed in the write direction. It could be an exciting time for the company.

    Cons

    Lack of technology. Allianz Life is way behind the times in technology and it inhibits growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in technology and hiring top talent.

    Small team, flexible schedule, decent salary, small number of clients.

    Small team can also make it difficult to balance a heavy work load

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to have had more clients to get a better range of work through the door.

    Pros

    Allianz bietet einen guten Ausgleich zwischen Arbeit und Freizeit, die KollegInnen sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Weltweit vertreten und sehr gut aufgestellt.

    Cons

    Kein Ausbund an Dynamik, die Karrierechancen in dieser Firma lassen sich vielleicht auch anderswo finden. Manchmal sind die Mitarbeiter weder sehr qualifiziert noch sehr dynamisch.

    Advice to Management

    Das Management hat das Unternehmen sehr gut durch die Wirren der Finanzkrise gesteuert. Die Vorstandsmitglieder verstehen ihr Handwerk sehr gut.

    Pros

    Friendly peers, senior managment's willingness to listen to employees, global company with opportunities to travel and explore opportunities around the region, many functional areas to explore to fit everyone's tastes

    Cons

    There seems to be at times redundant work being done, information needs to be chased after, at times work is very repetitive, compensation not up to par

    Advice to Management

    Despite the organic strucutre of Allianz companies, there seems to be lack of coordination behind major agendas. Felt that some agendas pass by unattended..

    Pros

    Good comp & benefits package

    Cons

    Terrible new HR team. The old HR regime was much better at representing employees to management. Huge politics between Germans and Americans. The Germans have taken over every aspect of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Forget it...they will not listen anyway.
