IT Technician (Former Employee) – Swindon – 9 January 2018
A good company to work for, you must be prepared to be flexible as there is constant change, which is what you expect from a global corporation. Options for employment outside of the U.K. are also possible
Great company but poor middle management. Too political
Senior Underwriter (Former Employee) – London – 2 January 2018
Great place to work and great job. Poor choose for middle managers / team leaders that block career path if you are perceived as a threat. Also lots of dead wood that are kept because “they know the systems”. Flatter structures are needed, too many chiefs that dont produce anything. UK offices having a good shake with exaig management, still need to get rid of all the dead wood and poor team leaders. Also can become too political and you have to watch ur back. Otherwise a great place to work
Various Positions and locations (Former Employee) – Whiteley, Hampshire – 12 December 2017
Typical day varied depending on the role. Zurich were always supportive re training, and the roles I carried out offered me variety and challenges to develop from. I had some excellent managers along with some not so excellent.
Very nice working environment with nice open office layout, dynamic working so you can go and sit wherever you want. This can be annoying as you may come in one morning and someone is sat in the space that you class as your own and you cannot leave any belongings on the desk overnight. Amazing company to work for, I only left as it was a summer job while at university.
Claims Handler (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 30 May 2017
The company always preaches about going above and beyond for the customer and striving to provide market leading customer service however at the same time reduces customer service roles across the business meaning customers struggle to speak to someone who can help and when they do they get a basic, quick service which often lacks in quality.
Support professional qualifications
fragmented and constantly changing executive strategies
Policy servicing Clerk (Former Employee) – Park Street, Cardiff – 2 May 2017
Very friendly co workers, everyday was different. It's not your average office job, we had fun and fully worked as a team. We decorated our corner every christmas, and throughout and enjoyed ocassional quizzes & games to boost productivity. The personal lines office is now closed but Zurich Commercial is still ongoing based in Cardiff City centre.
Pension, flexible hours, bonus- work related & Share options
PA /Business Change & IT Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Shurdington Road, Cheltenham – 19 April 2017
I joined Zurich Insurance & Endsleigh on a 3 month contract to assist with a project. I was fortunate enough to be offered a full-time position elsewhere in the company after just one month of my contract.
I've worked hard to progress within the company, and within the 2 years of being with Zurich and Endsleigh, I've had 4 promotions.
Due to a company restructure, I have unfortunately been placed at risk of redundancy.
I have enjoyed my time within Zurich and Endsleigh Insurance, although I believe now is the time for a new adventure.
Professional financial workplace but looked after employees
Executive PA to the Chief Marketing officer (Former Employee) – Farnborough, Hampshire – 17 February 2017
Always busy, focusing on providing the best service to stakeholders. No two days were the same with changing priorities requiring a change in directions but this created an interesting atmosphere to work in. There was an excellent workplace culture in which employees were encouraged to develop their skills and talents. The company benefits were excellent too.
Employees' benefits were excellent
Work life balance was sometimes difficult to manage during busy periods
The people who work there are incredibly friendly and social - often arranging departmental social events and are extremely welcoming to new staff Training for the jobs you do is extensive Managers are flexible and do their best to make working as easy and enjoyable as possible Career advancement is frustrating - not a lot of opportunities and tends to be given to those who have been there a while rather than on ability
QA Tester (Current Employee) – london – 26 January 2017
As an organisation the company is currently striving to automate most business processes as it has understood benefits of automation in view of cost reduction. Nice place to work as organisational culture is all inclusive
