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

    Pros

    Aside from all the terrific perks and benefits, for which there are many, the leadership is continually listening to associates, making improvements throughout the organization and winning new strategic partner accounts (we just won Priceline). C-level execs are taking on more global responsibilities within AWP - exciting to be a part of such a fast-growing company with solid financials and employee rewards. We are quickly becoming the most valuable and undisputed leader in the travel insurance and protection market, and we're expanding in other areas/markets as well.

    Cons

    Keeping up with the growth is the only real challenge that is consistent, although the company is much better at that lately - making management changes and dealing with the real issues that hinder growth. IT concerns and slowness to adapt can be problematic and add frustration when trying to accomplish big goals but execs are aware and are tackling those issues head on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Love the thoughtfulness for which leadership approaches questions and feedback. Continue to help the teams eliminate some of the day-to-day frustrations in not getting some basic resources to increase productivity, efficiency and effectiveness throughout.

    Pros

    Room for growth. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Ask a lot of questions to see about the turnover in your department and those you will work with. Difficult to get a raise, make sure you get hired at a good salary.

    Pros

    They try to provide you with ample breaks to break up the call volume. The call volume is not as much as other call centers.

    Cons

    Team leaders need to work on coaching associates a little better. Also it would be beneficial to send out more reminders to associates so they know how to better handle certain situations.

    Pros

    Before becoming a parent, Fitness was a huge part of my life. Now as a single parent, I have very limited time for anything outside of work and taking care of my child. I started to become depressed and defeated because something I love so dearly had been taken away. I decided to take action. I spoke with my manager, and I asked to come in 30 minutes early for an hour lunch. There was no hesitation on her part. My permanent schedule was updated before the end of my shift. I now have an hour to take care of myself. I am truly humble and appreciative of this opportunity.

    Cons

    No downside. I appreciate my employer.
