    I have been working at Zurich North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I stayed with my prior employer for quite a long time because I dreaded the process of attempting to find a new job. I only applied for a couple of positions before coming to work at Zurich, and I can say that this has been the easiest on-boarding experience I have ever had. I started with an initial phone interview where I was given an accurate description of the position, followed by an onsite interview, and then received an offer. Through this entire process Arianna, the person from the talent acquisition team that I was working with, stayed in touch with me through calls and text messages. I also felt comfortable joining the team after receiving calls from several members of the leadership team before my start date.

    I work for a new area of operations in the company and our leadership has developed a strong team that has been afforded the opportunity to have an impact on the program that was being developed. Almost everyone I work with feels personally invested in the work we do every day. This is largely due to the support we receive from our leadership and the fact that everyone here actually fits in with the company culture. Since we were developing a new program there were some long hours and a lot of flexibility required - everyone from the top down worked together and I always felt appreciated, whether it be through a thank you card or a gift card as a thank you from management.

    Cons

    While there is good work life balance, and there is a good bonus program, the health insurance benefits are high deductible health plans, not the greatest, but could be much worse.

    I worked at Zurich North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved my colleagues in NY, Zurich, Schaumburg/Chicago and Owings Mills. Sharp talent all around, good managers and leadership at the helm. Warm and friendly staff. Finance team is extremely strong.

    Cons

    Decision making can be slow in some cases. Must be willing to work within and appreciate the culture. Top-down targets should be handled better as they create morale issues.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Very bright management and good core values. Excellent retirement and pension plans, progressive benefits.

    Cons

    Short term goals don't always line up with long term goals. Have been known to go all in with an idea that was not really well thought out.

    Pros

    I like the organization of the company. They truly promote well-being for their employees. I always feel like I am kept in the loop of whats going on with the company. Pension along with a 401(k) offered, which is fantastic. Health Benefits are not fantastic but its better than a lot of other places out there.

    Cons

    I don't believe there are much for cons at this company.
