What is Zurich North America sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
You start at 19 days of PTO (Sick + Vacation) and can roll over up to 5 days at the end of the year. You can also buy / sell up to 5 days per year. I felt that the vacation time provided was quite generous, but there was rarely a time when I felt like I could use it, as there wasn't a work backup system in place. If it was there when you left, it would most likely be on your desk when you returned.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Zurich North America a better place to work?
Stop hiring unqualified people. Lately they have also been on a women and other minorities kick. the best candidate should always be the number one choice. Otherwise you are just reinforcing the vicious circle.

I'm sure the company will do great from a stock perspective, but they're succeeding by overworking and outsourcing their employees. Not my kind of fun!
