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

    Pros

    close to the short pump mall

    Cons

    management does not care about your health or work life balance.
    management is uneducated
    they steal customers money through their event protector product on ticket master. The director stated that it was good for revenue, when people make a purchase and have no idea.

    Advice to Management

    close

    Good pro, 401k and healthcare HSaa

    Cons

    Training isn't well done. Systems and business training isn't put together for successful orientation

    Advice to Management

    Create a business analyst oboarding that is well put together and followed. New BAs know basic ba deliverables but learning the business ops and systems is what we need to be trained on.

    I have been working at Allianz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is flexible regarding work hours and they'll let you decide at what time you start and finish your work day.

    Cons

    Bad I.T. Systems and way too many of them. This company is top heavy on the management side and does not have enough worker bees in some areas. That creates a bad experience for many people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that actually do the work and develop processes around them instead of what you think is best.

    No matter who you are you have to work weekends and holidays.

    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.

    I have been working at Allianz full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits; opportunities to move around the company; great work life balance; able to work from home as needed

    Cons

    Constant fear that you will be laid off. Upper management is leaving in droves. Poor morale; expect us to work cohesively with Allianz India even though they will take our job.

    Advice to Management

    Management is in the same boat as everyone else so good luck to keeping your job as well. Be transparent and stop dragging us along when answers are already there
