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

    Pros

    Amazing atmosphere, new modern building, opportunities for growth, learning while you earn, unlimited possibilities, great coworkers, amazing benefits, flex work.

    Cons

    The hardest part of my job is balancing my work and social life. I have to learn how to balance both of these properly.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for creating an apprenticeship in a white collar industry, and paving the way for the rest of the industry.

    Pros

    Able recognition for a job well done. Great management. Room for movement and flexibility and a pretty dynamic corporate structure.

    Cons

    Pretty easy to get caught in the corporate-world trap and not move up at all. Many people seem overly content with putting in their 9-5 shift and going home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving towards the model of consulting firms by allowing more team-based initiatives, where vibrant and dedicated individuals are rewarded with opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    The people at Zurich are wonderful. Everyone shows care for fellow employees and there is never a problem in asking for help or advice on any issue. The newly designed workplace is accommodating and allows for great collaboration. The senior attorneys are all very knowledgeable and reputable.

    Cons

    If I absolutely had to create a con, it would only be that sometimes the work got monotonous. But overall there were many various experiences.

    Salaries plateau at each job grage and promotions are slow to devlope because many people stay in the same job for many many years

    Advice to Management

    Hire more younger employees...marketing dep has done this successfully and brought energetic and creative people into a team that collaborates well, advances new ideas and is entreprenurial. Also, rotate job rolesso employees are challenged to learn new skill sets and build broader networks within the organization.
