    Pros

    Challenging tasks, good teamwork and supervision. It is possible to get a lot of responsibility, even small projects to handle.

    Cons

    There is not really a disadvantage or negative point to make here. Maybe Hannover is not the most exciting city...

    Advice to Management

    For example, data management could be further improved to speed up working processes. Sometimes it is hard to reuse previous stats for analysis.

    I worked at Hannover RE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great place to work with good benefits.
    Some lovely people to work with
    German efficiency at it's finest, at least in my department anyway. They don't do anything by halves!

    Cons

    The opportunities to move up in the London office are very minimal. They will try to keep you in the same place doing the same thing for as long as they can get away with.

    Advice to Management

    You need to do more to look after the good staff in the London office. Stop ignoring the diligent workers and promoting the lazy yes-men...

    I have been working at Hannover RE full-time

    Pros

    Less hierarchy than many large corporations. At early stage (1- 2 years) they let you start talking to the external parties on you own and travel to your responsible market. Flexible working hours and practically no overtime work. You need to work 35 hours a week and any extra time will be logged and you can accumulate to take a day-off or work less the other days.

    Cons

    They sell themselves as an "International company" but it is a very German company in a good and a bad way. Less creative and becoming more conservative with their approach. Very very frugal. Less structured with they way they train new employees so it is better suited for people with 3-5 year experience. It is located in the middle of nowhere so the only option for lunch is at the company cafeteria (not so great but cheap). No real diversity. Majority Germany employees and many of them don't have much overseas experience.

    Pros

    Hannover Re is a great company to work for. The entire experience from interviewing, the first day and long into the role was a pleasure. The company values and it's people make it a strong favourite of mine.

    Cons

    There are no cons. I loved the company and only left due to personal reasons. We all strive to find a role you look forward to being in and this was it.

    Advice to Management

    The staff that Hannover Re have make this company exceptional. Keep the people who do the hiring in place!
