Today, the director of our HR department of Allianz Global Assistance (or is it Allianz Partners? Or Allianz Worldwide Partners? Can someone call Germany to find out? Or is it France that decides?) sent a note to leadership asking that we write a positive review, and encourage our staff to write positive reviews. This was the last straw for me.
Having been with Allianz for several years, I have seen a steady and consistent decline in the treatment of both staff (at all levels) and customers. In the past couple of months, we’ve lost several valuable leaders due to the mess that has been made of this company. The scary part is, at least 4 people with management positions have quit without other jobs lined up. That’s saying something.
Here’s my advice: If you want good reviews, earn them. Be a place people want to work and are proud to work. Ease the workload of your top performers instead of overloading them with more staff and duties. Stop telling the employees how much you’re communicating - you’re not actually saying anything. People at all levels see through it and it has become the running office joke.
Get your house in order and take care of your people, because without good people this company is toast.
Oh and our CEO quit again. What’s that, 4 in 4 years?
There are a handful of sane, proficient people left.
The atmosphere, the work, the senior leadership team, Abs, head office, shifting priorities.
