"The possibility of moving up the ranks varies a lot depending on job function."
Graduate, Zurich
"It depends on what unit you work in. From my understanding it is more common to move horizontally into different functions at the company rather than directly move up bands."
Graduate, Zurich
"There is a very low turnover of employees so it is hard to move up the ranks."
Graduate, Zurich
"Competition is tough as there are many capable people in the company. Even though good work is being recognised, it is still somewhat difficult to move up."
Graduate, Zurich
"Your career prospects depend on the division. In the core business (underwriting) moving up is harder than in operations. Promotions are based on meritocracy more than seniority."
Graduate, Zurich
"Tough competition on all levels; the successful candidates have to really go above and beyond the work that is anyhow expected from them in order to move up the ranks."
Graduate, Zurich
