Manager COO Office (Current Employee) –  Zürich, ZHNovember 20, 2018
Functions within Swiss Re have very different cultures and work attitudes. This will also vary a lot regionally. Swiss Re can be a great place to work - if you work for the right people ;o)

Technischer Angestellter (Former Employee) –  Adliswil, ZHNovember 5, 2018
Die Swiss Re hat sich negativ entwickelt. Als Mitarbeiter wird man ausgepresst wie eine Zitrone. Dazu kommt noch die Auslagerung verschiedener Tätigkeiten.
Pros
Sehr gutes Mittagessen

While I only worked a temporary job as a trainee, it provided me with several interesting tasks and allowed me to experience the typical working life in a company. Working hours are very flexible.

Prozessmanagement und Int. Auditor (Current Employee) –  Adliswil, ZHOctober 2, 2013
Durch die Erfahrung als Sachbearbeiterin und anschliessend zweijährige Führungsaufgabe als Sektionsleiterin habe ich mir ein fundiertes Fachwissen der Prozesse (wie Beschaffung, Kommunikation, P&C, Rechnungswesen, Projektmgmt) angeeignet. Was es mir nun ermöglicht, diese Prozesse in meiner täglichen Arbeit zu hinterfragen und in Zusammenarbeit mit den Schnittstellen aller Stufen zu optimieren.
Die grösste Herausforderung ist alle notwendigen Bedürfnisse zu berücksichtigen und die Prozesse in einem realistischen Zeitrahmen durch alle Instanzen absegnen zu lassen und anschliessend zu implementieren.
Am meisten schätze ich an dieser Arbeit meine eigenen Ideen einzubringen, die Arbeitsprozesse zu vereinfachen und für alle verständlich darzustellen.
Nebenbei erledige ich alltägliche Arbeiten wie die Abwicklung von Beschaffungen, Projektmitarbeit, allg. Administration.
Pros
Flexible Arbeitszeit, freie Arbeitsgestaltung (inkl. Home Office), breites Arbeitsgebiet
Cons
Komplizierte/auswendige Arbeitsprozesse
