Challenging work
Pros:
Work is challenging but manageable

Many opportunities to seek out learning opportunities and job rotations, if desired

Great benefits and ability to work from home once a week

Cons:

Management is not the most transparent and not the best at communicating changes internally

Culture is sub-par

You have to create your own career path to move up in the company

If you manage up you will succeed
If you manage up you will succeed. gone are the days where longevity and loyalty are valued. Many Underwriters have left the company in just the last year.Seems impossible to hit the numbers necessary to continue in the organization

Good company, prone to change
Amazing company for job flexibility, including working remotely. You need to be a self starter and be willing to learn through self motivation and asking for help

Not like it used to be
Many years ago it was the place to be BUT not anymore. Hard working employees should be acknowledged and it doesn't always have to be monetarily. A thank you goes a long way. Also your ideas and suggestion will be stolen therefore make sure you present as yours to the correct person.

Flexible schedule, Zurich bureaucracy
If you are on a global team, the bureaucracy from Zurich will make work difficult. Good work/life balance. Used to be a fun place to work but cuts over past few years and minimal raises and lower bonuses have hurt morale

Work life balance needs to be reviewed
I learned a lot while working at this company about all aspects of the insurance industry. Overtime is required to keep up with the demands of the job. The job can include lots of travel. Some of the middle managers were difficult to work with. Pay is good.
Pros
Good Cafeteria, salary, healthcare
Cons
Long hours
