It's a big brand, that's it. They look good on the internet and linkedin but that's not how it is behind closed doors. Technology really out-dated. Too much duplication in processing. Staff been there longer do what they want. No real progression. Internal interviews for progression always formally carried out but they still look outside the company for new staff. Too much sickness between all staff. Can't moan too much, could have been worse elsewhere.
Very poor management who do not support staff. Very "clicky" for the last 2 years I was there made my life unbearable due to the fact I took time off work while having chemotherapy - they expected me to continue to work full time, then when I went part time I was still expected to do full time work. The management want yes people and those that stand up for themselves are outcast If your looking for a job I would go somewhere else
My experience at Zurich was on the a whole a positive one. My managers were supportive and encouraging to my personal development. The work was varied and interesting although the workload was often in a state of backlog and the pressure was often felt within the team.
Had own portfolio of motor claims to handle from inception through to fruition. My manager was always keen to offer guidance and what I loved he'd seek to get me to come up with solutions rather than give you the answer. I had a great manager that brought the best out in me.
I work was enjoyable
Professional fun and flexible working environment. Light and spacious building, restaurant on site, career progression, emphasis on personal goal setting, friendly teams and general sense of purpose. Good benefits with flexible working and opportunities for both full and part time colleagues. In providing a balanced review, it is fair to point out some constructive points in the interest of improvement. With the UK headcount halved in less than a decade the workload for remaining colleagues has increased by at least a third, therefore focus is required on innovation aligned to keeping key experienced staff members. Short term cost cutting exercises detract from the company’s long term customer centric strategy and there is an increasing acknowledgment that Zurich is not the ‘great place to work’ it once was.
Great benefits and flexibility, but poor management, poor HR communication and mixed executive message. It's a big company which needs to rectify it's ground level staffing issues. There have been constant redundancy warnings in the 7 years I have worked here.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
always place for progression. Management does a lot for the employees , they hear you when you raise your concerns and wok on doing it better and providing a much better environment to people to work in. great working area, and people are nice. always busy but great place to work .
Everything was Great
Within 3 months of starting a role I was looking for the exit. Poor transition of role to another team on day 2 of my start date. Poor training and dropped in the deep end on other responsibilities that were not in my job role. Bad management skills, didn't take advice from experienced new starter over degree based Indian Intern.
Lack of coherence & skills in Management Teams
A really great company to work for. The work at times was challenging but made bearable by excellent management and so many great people around you. Lots of development opportunities and good perks. Thoroughly enjoyed working here.
