    I have been working at Allianz Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The career development and opportunity to meet/work with very senior people is really good. Everyone values grads undoubtably have a quicker route to the top management positions that those who are not on the grad scheme.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a placement in the London City office. All placement in head office (Guildford) or scattered around the country. Pay could be more in line with other insurance grad schemes.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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!
