    I worked at Allianz Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very responsive to changes and recommendations that employees and supervisors see. No red tape here! Value employee engagement - always bring in free catering for employees, free coffee, free parking, points system that you can use to buy things, annual performance bonuses and merit increases. Very easy to move around and apply to other jobs (want to promote from within first), easy to job shadow, great benefits, pension matching and paid time off. Great training too.

    Cons

    Fast paced - Not really a con, some people might see it that way, BUT it makes the day go by so much faster and you learn so much!

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

    Pros

    Hardworking employees, engaging work, understanding supervisors, some middle management in operations with limited management experience receiving unwarranted promotions.

    Cons

    COO, CFO, and CEO always changing. The company is losing money and reported that they would be for about 2 years before slowly moving themselves into a position of profitability. Its global office has limited knowledge of how to run a travel insurance company in Canada as they continue to provide poor insight to the Canadian business. Generally the sense around the company is a sense of fear of losing their jobs and the management they bring in from other countries is doing little of solving that problem and letting some of the more skilled employees and managers go as a result of poor office politics.
