I have so enjoyed working with this company and the employees. I love this job and sad to leave, but relocation to Orlando happened. This job challenged me daily which I truly enjoyed. Every day was something new to troubleshoot and a new relationship to build.
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!

Analyst (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – May 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.
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.
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.
Excellent company that is innovative and proactively changing to meet the future. Good campus life, central location and generally good working atmosphere & culture. Changes in benefits going forward may make some older employees take retirement.
Great pay, OK benefits
Intrusion of German culture where not needed or appropriate
A typical day as an accounting intern at Munich ReInsurance started and ended with entering invoices and treaties into their SAP system. Management was extremely welcoming and helpful to interns and employees. Weekly meetings kept everyone informed and up to speed on what needed to be completed.
Very pleasant working environment with educated, well-respected professionals in a multi-cultural environment. Had great respect for the wisdom and fairness of planning and achieving overall management/business strategies.
Company lacks advancement opportunities especially for their underwriting analysts. Currently they recruit college graduates and put them through the actuarial/underwriting training programs. Future underwriting positions are reserved for them as well.
I been at this company for over 30 years, excellent company to work for. growth opportunity, this company value education and is willing to help financial any employee who desired to advance their education. I cannot compare benefits offer against other companies since I have never worked for any other company.
A typical day at Munich Re America as an intern included working with a mentor to complete various accounting tasks, as well communicating with clients if any issues arose. Interns frequently attended career development and leadership seminars, as well held meetings to discuss how to raise money for the Eden Autism 5k. The staff of Munich Re America was friendly and welcoming, and was willing to teach and help the interns learn as much as possible.
