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
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 worked really hard for this company for 16 years. Even pursued my degree with the hope that it would open doors for advancement opportunities, which was never the case. I was able to advance to various positions within the company, but could never get to underwriting. Underwriting positions are now being reserved for young college recruits. This is currently a great company to work for if you're a young college recruit.
Broad experience and always involved in various tasks to meet departmental need.
System Administrator/Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 21, 2014
I enjoyed my position at Munich Re as I was always asked to perform various tasks to meet departmental needs. I was involved in all aspects of the department's workload including training other underwriting assistants and managing the company's internet based submission system.
I went to Munich Re from another company and was totally floored. The location is great; the people I worked with were phenomenal; it was better than where I came from. I really loved working there. The holiday party is unbelievable; the free barbecues are terrific; the company store has almost everything you could ask for; it's an amazing place to work. I was extremely unhappy when I left and I was there for 12 years.
Amazing holiday party, free barbecues, company store, dry cleaning service, gorgeous building and grounds, so many pros
