Intern

Intern In Financial Management (Current Employee)
Munich (Germany)

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

ProsMulticultural and team working environment, good work-life balance, you get in touch with all the other interns and working students during a "student lunch" organised every 2 weeks, but also with upper management with a monthly department lunch

ConsNo job opportunities at an entry-level position, rough competition concerning the intern position (only 2 positions available each year), long "quiet period" during summertime

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Varied

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Allianz full-time for less than a year

Pros- opportunity is not dependent on prior experience
- learning academy has good some good training. The downside is that opportunity might be given to the select few.

Cons- backwards in terms of technology
- experience and job knowledge was not valued or compensated for some positions.

Advice to Senior Management- Prior experience and having the technical knowledge is crucial for some positions. However, current hiring and salary may not be based on technical competencies for some of these positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Am outsorcing way to go

Training Administrator (Current Employee)
Bucharest (Romania)

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

ProsThe company is a startup in Bucharest and by the time i left they only had 6 moths going, in which they mannaged to grow from 4 employees to about 20, with plans to go to 50 by the end of the year. They pay prettty welll and there are plenty of oportunitiess for advancement.

ConsThis is still an outsorcing business, and you will be a gear in the giant cog that is Allianz. If you like detail work and working with office all day you will fit in. If not, you will find the work boring and without satisfaction. The woking hours can be long and you will get a hard time form some of the management and the clients.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut more care into your human resourcess, especially the ones that are outsorced (not in Munich) Motivate and develop a relationship with them, they are not just some man hours to be used when needed.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
