    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..

    Pros

    The people are excellent. The front line staff is very helpful and cheerful and very hard working. The cab facility is excellent there is a good work life balance if you are part of a business division

    Cons

    Corporate functions is like a sweat shop. You work tirelessly without reward. HR managers are not helpful at all and have poor leadership qualities. Working for the BPO is the best as the head is a nice person, very helpful and is a strong leader as are the heads of the other business division.
    Pantry food can be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at the attrition rise and introspect as to the actual reasons, some of the managers hired are not upto the mark

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The money was good. Decent salary plus very good variable pay which is up to you to make. Realistic targets which could be achieved with a reasonable effort. A fun place to work with.

    Cons

    I felt that the growth cycle from a CSA level1 to the Assistant Manager post is very long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can stand up to their British bosses a bit more in terms of being realistic in their expectation rather than to just nod for everything and then think of how to get the thing done which they nodded for.
