It is all up to you
Company encourages you to be a creator of your own career. Come up with goals and assess your own development and results.
This helps to develop more generalist specialists, without particular focus on the line of business. Sometimes you are in the meeting with people who don't know you, neither know what you are doing.

I like what I am doing - I am a technical specialist, I know the risks first hand, and I like to raise the awareness, to educate and to recommend to the clients, underwriters and the actuaries.
Pros
Energy is one of the most volatile lines of business therefore this role is very important
Cons
Oil and Gas are getting a bad publicity ( carbon footprint, etc.).

It all depends on your manager / team
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)

Selbständiges Arbeiten
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

Productive workplace with a lot of opportunities
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.

Great company, great benefits
it is a company of experts and therefore upward potential is more difficult for generalists, however networking can help in this regard. Overall a great work environment

Abwechslungsreicher Arbeitsort
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
