    Pros

    Large 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.

    Cons

    The 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.
