"Great opportunities and support for professional and personal training such as communication skills, professional degrees (actuarial qualification, CFA, CPA, etc.)."
Graduate, Zurich
"It's a great program, at first seems hard to cater to all the people as we hold different functions. I think for the more group and internal functions it is structured well. For underwriters and client facing functions, more specialised training at the beginning would have been more useful to pick up technical skills."
Graduate, Zurich
"You are taught the basics of reinsurance, how to make the most of your careers networking skills and tips for developing your personal strengths and working on your weaknesses, etc."
Graduate, Zurich
"I have received three months of full classroom training during the graduate programme. Furthermore, I was given the opportunity for two job rotations within Swiss Re in order to see different fields of work as well. Even though I think that the graduate programme is quite demanding (besides of the aforementioned rotations it includes several tests, the writing of a paper, and a group project), I have never seen anything comparable anywhere else."
Graduate, Zurich
"As part of the graduate programme you have in total 50 classroom training days, where you learn about the industry, company and different lines of business. Also on the job training is performed as you are assigned a 'buddy' the first months whom will help and support you."
Graduate, Zurich
"Informal training with colleagues is really efficient. The internal training programmes offered by the company have a really high quality with extremely prepared conductors."
Graduate, Zurich
"In the programme for university graduates, you will spend some 11 weeks on dedicated trainings in the company academy. These courses are really helpful in providing you with a jump-start."
