    ProsAbility to work remote for some. Generally pays bonus.

    ConsProduction pressure bordering on harassment. Low authority for underwriters and underwriters are lowest class of employee with do it all yourself with awful systems. Onus is on line underwriters to make up for general disorganization and poor management. Lots of set up for failure.

    Good place to start

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Munich (Germany)

    ProsLarge company, mobility inside the group is guaranteed. Managers are willing to listen to the employees. Company values are well expressed.
    Allianz employees have access to a wide range of benefits.

    ConsThe internal bureaucratic procedures can be tiring and can slow down fast actions: being a large and old company, some functions could be redesigned.
    Work-life balance is fair but fluctuates pretty heavily according to deadlines.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
