  1.  

    One of the best companies to work for.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Allianz

    Pros

    Known for their best HR practices, employee engagement and career growth. Diverse work culture, extra curricular activities, Flexy timings etc are other attributes

    Cons

    Mostly BPO in nature. Hence the stability of the company depends a lot on stability of the industry. There are hardly any more cons to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on going the same way..

    I have been working at Allianz full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Have worked for Allianz for 7 years and cannot speak highly enough of the company. For me it's more than a job, it's somewhere I feel valued and actively enjoy spending time. First and foremost Allianz cares about its people; there are incomparable training and development opportunities for staff and in 7 years I have never once been denied a training request. Wellbeing is a key topic and Allianz allows employees 10 hours paid leave per year to undertake a volunteering activity of their choice. The benefits are excellent; from discounted insurance policies to discounted gym membership, a dry cleaning service on site and numerous other facilities. There is an active Sports and Social club and a robust Reward and Recognition scheme. The culture at Allianz is extremely friendly and many staff have either worked here for years or left and returned to the company - a strong indictment of what a great company it is to work for. The Graduate Schemes are well organised and allow our graduates unrivalled opportunities in training and qualification. Above all, I enjoy coming to work each day and count myself lucky in this respect.

    Cons

    Not always the fastest paced environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have a wonderful company which the majority of employees feel extremely proud to work for. We just need to encourage a more experimentative and innovative culture to ensure we keep pace (or indeed keep ahead) of our competitors.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good compensation, super diverse and great colleagues. Great package especially when based in Germany.

    Cons

    Slow moving, risk averse organization. Sometimes too German centered. German colleagues "seem" have an advantage over non Germans, especially when it comes to management positions.
