I have been working at Zurich North America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Corp. balance sheet. Able to u/w international to large contractors. Company is filled with vast industry experts who have been u/w surety for 30 to 40 years. Decentralized corporate structure with high local underwriting authority to make deals happen quickly and get new business.

Cons

Internal IT systems/ infrastructure far behind industry standards and competitor. Limited upper mobility for yournger workers. Overly aggressive growth targets.

Advice to Management

Sometimes no growth is the best risk mitigator.

    I worked at Zurich North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Stable company

    Cons

    After two years you will still not understand the pay plan. Regional managers only micro manage and do ZERO to coach and develop front line field staff

    Very long and exhausting interviewing and onboarding process

    Held very highly accountable for exceeding goals without getting the necessary resourses to accomplish these goals

    Growth goals are set each year and can be unrealistic

    Job security

    No loyalty from management and Regional Managers will use front line field staff as the fall guy for their own personal failures and lack of production

    Advice to Management

    Tried before I left, and got no response so it is unlikely they will care any more by seeing it here.
