      Pros

      This is the best company I've worked at so far. Young people. Fresh outlook. Eager to learn and adopt new technologies. Great management. Beautiful offices all over the world. I've only been around for a year and I've learned so much.

      Cons

      Some nepotism. Zurich gate keepers.

      Pros

      SwissRe is a great company to work for. Company values knowledge and seniority. Benefit package is great, 401K matching excellent.

      Cons

      Career development is an opportunity area. Management is more focused on delivery and dates, sometimes does not show a personal level of caring and attention for people who are interested in developing career.

      Pros

      Great company and benefits! For the most part, they really care about their employees.

      Cons

      Most managers are really good, there are a few that are not, including mine. When a manager in the US reports to someone abroad (Zurich) often times they don’t know how their employee operates. It happens frequently.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits, good teamwork and modern facility

      Cons

      Work pace is a bit much. Can be overwhelming at times to get things done in scheduled time. I don't mind working over, but you aren't compensated.

      An extensive amount of very smart people who are experts in their field. International experience allows you to work with many different regions and cultures. Great employer benefits.

      Cons

      Advancement not really available w/o a move to Switzerland. Easy to be seen capable of only doing one kind of job; not a lot of cross training
