- * More personal responsibility and accountability (is currently on all slides but isn't really lived in reality) * Less SteerCos and endless alignment cycles (a straightforward decision can take months and involve external consultancies) * Decide finally what is the right way forward, and stay with it. Currently even the CEO's agenda is "watered down" many times down the chain of command. * Be much more precise at decisions, communication, ownership, etc.
+ FlexWork (from remote or from other locations) is accepted
+ Good salaries and outstanding long-term benefits
+ Good job/industry image to the outside (except to some people who know of Zurich's internal chaos)
+ Change also means chances for some... career rotation and new opportunities, as long as you play the game and contribute to the current mission without questioning
- Lots of reorganization(s), people are informed about them from the media (or not at all... but suddenly two of your friends are gone overnight)
- Chaotic approach to almost everything, with ping-pong responsibility
- Unclear decision making: why are there up to 4 lines of management, in the same meetings, from the same chain of command -- no idea who decides, everyone's busy "aligning" themselves with each other
- Huge and glacier-slow steering committees who are busy with themselves. Org charts on projects have 1-2 developers and 20 "Involved managers" of all kinds
- Nothing changes since nothing has to change - protected industry, long-term customers, so the best bet for many is to do exactly nothing (no new systems, no breakthroughs, no significant evolution).
- Main element of current strategy cycle is cost cutting, the rest is fluff. Cost cutting is awesome for shareholders, but painful and limiting for employees.
