    Pros

    Allianz is a great company to work for, great benefits, understanding employer

    Slow progression. HR Support is virtually nil! Having a virtual HR team is awful. Also a little bit "old boys club" throughout the business.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the HR function and culture, its not great. Start at the top!
