Training Specialist

Zurich is an organized environment. Difficult to have career advancements as most of the business is in the US or in Europe. Overall acceptable working conditions and good colleagues.

The 80/20 Rule

Job Work/Life Balance - 20% of the employees do 80% of the work. If you are one of the 20%, you are rarely thanked let alone rewarded. 60+ hour weeks are not uncommon. Salary / Benefits - old pension is gone which was a huge motivator for employees to endure this place. Salary is below market average. Regardless, you will earn every penny. Job Security/Advancement -company is notorious for restructure and lay-offs almost annually. They prefer appointing external management over promoting from within. Management - some good, some bad. The good ones are at the mercy of an erratic and ever-changing corporate strategy. Job Culture - majority of staff is miserable and over-worked. There are fundraising and pizza-day events every once in a while. Morale has been so low for so long that it's somewhat trite, but the gesture is nice nonetheless.

It's a fun place to work in. Very friendly and job was very easy to do.

Zurich has a strong balance sheet and a well-balanced portfolio of business — geographically and by line of business. Zurich consistently maintains strong financial ratings.When customers and brokers select an insurer, they need to know the company will be around and in a position to pay claims this year, next year and in the years to come

A great place to work!

I was welcomed as a part of the team from day one, and the supportive environment amongst my co-workers has not changed. The management is excellent and does not micro-manage. Finally, I am given a chance to make decisions and supported when I am right and effectively coached on how to make better decisions if I should happen to make an error. I would recommend working for Zurich as I am happy to be here!
