    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zurich North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. New shining Headquarters, I think that is it. Not to many good things about the company

    Cons

    Lack of executive vision. Too much favouritism in the workplace to workers who have been with company over 10 years. No matter how hard you work or how smart you are, you talent will be overshadowed by stupid older employees. Also partiality among female employees. For e.g. I worked in a team where one lady was promoted to manager position and that lady doesn't have bachelors degree not even associate degree and she...

    I have been working at Zurich North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Competitive Salary. Global exposure. Management is flexible with Work/Life balance.

    Cons

    Positions with global responsibilities will find promotions hard to obtain. Most happen in Europe. Not much opportunity for upward mobility. Changes to management happen so often you never develop a relationship with a manager that can be helpful to your career.

    Zurich is a company that has a strategy and a plan to go from good to great. It also has a focus on its employees and customers.

    Company is implementing an open seating arrangement and must insure that it provides enough group meeting space and privacy.

    Keep the lines of communication open.

    I worked at Zurich North America

    Pros

    Zurich still has some good front line employees that try to do their best for their customers.

    Cons

    This company is only about cutting costs/consolidating operations, with little regard for employees or customers. They are moving any job they can find offshore in an attempt to cut costs. Many of the senior managers are 'yes' men that are only interested in protecting their job, with little encouragement for creativity. Employees have been told that 'if you don't like it, we can find someone else' and discouraged...

    Advice to Management

    Back off the outsourcing and start rewarding employees for doing a good job. The outsourcing has introduced massive beaurocracy, huge inefficiency, and is ruining your customer service. Also, properly staff your front line staff.
