Great place to work!
HR Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJJune 28, 2018
Munich Re America (Princeton) is truly a wonderful place to work. Everyone is friendly, genuine, and always willing to lend a helping hand. Management is very involved and wants to help/see you grow and succeed. It is busy, but work life balance is a priority here and work hours are very flexible. Benefits and salary are good, and PTO is excellent. There are also many perks to working here onsite such as gym, cafeteria, doctor's office, dry cleaning, etc. All in all, Munich Re is awesome!

Needs Work
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJMay 7, 2018
Culture spouted at interview differed drastically after employment. Apparently, everything depends on the department you work in. Some allow wfh, comp time and others don't. Management has no coaching experience and would rather take the easiest way out rather than explore reasons why your work may be taking longer than expected. In my case it turned out to be IT settings but I had to find that out on my own. My boss just wrote me off as slow. As I said, the management team should all be required to take coaching classes to help cultivate and grow the talent on board.
Pros
on-site gym
Cons
limited benefit choices, poor management

Innovative and challenging place to work
Facultative Certificate Underwriting Analyst (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJJanuary 15, 2018
Innovative and challenging place to work. Employees were given all the tools needed to complete their jobs. The work culture and Management - were always open and willing to learn new ways to make our job more efficient and better the company. My days were fast paced- always a full work-load. This was the hardest part of the job- we always had a full workload which sometimes posed a challenge. Although, this was also the most enjoyable in the sense that we were not stagnant and unproductive.
Pros
Job remained challenging.
Cons
Short lunch breaks.

Relaxed place of work
Reinsurance Intern (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJOctober 2, 2017
For an intern, the days can seem to drag with usually less work to do than would fill up your day. Very slow paced work environment with not a huge sense of urgency. However, very friendly atmosphere and good management. Typical day is just sitting in your cubicle.
Pros
Great lunch options
