Taking care of today
Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz) offers one of the most comprehensive benefits packages in the industry. From the very first day you join our team, you will know that your contributions are valued. All medical, dental, and retirement benefits are effective immediately upon hire, and nearly all other special programs and benefits are available to all eligible employees from the first day they join the Allianz team.
Our base pay program's primary objective is to recognize the value of an individual's skills, experience, and contribution with competitive market pay. Our variable pay programs focus on time-based results. All employees are eligible to receive these awards based on the mix of pay established for their positions.
Our employees work hard and we recognize that they need time away from work for a variety of reasons. To that end, we have created a paid time off program, which can be used for any purpose, such as vacation, child care, eldercare, religious holiday, birthday, parent/teacher conference, doctor's visit, or sick leave.
The company observes 12 paid holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (2 days), Christmas Day, a designated Floating Holiday. Two holidays are determined by you: Diversity Day and Day of Sharing.
Compressed workweeks, flextime, job sharing and telecommuting are all options at Allianz, provided that the needs of the business can be met through these alternative work arrangements.
Allianz provides competitive medical coverage. Each medical plan includes coverage for a spouse or domestic partner and/or dependent children. Our strong medical plans include comprehensive medical coverage and a prescription drug plan.
Utilizing United HealthCare's Preferred Provider network, employees have access to providers and facilities nationwide. HMOs are also available in certain locations. All preventive screenings received by network providers are 100% covered (may be subject to an HMO copayment if applicable).
You may choose from three comprehensive MetLife dental plans. Each dental plan includes coverage for a spouse or domestic partner and/or dependent children. All of our dental plans cover preventive and basic restorative services. You may also choose a plan which includes coverage for major restorative and orthodontic services. And you have the flexibility to choose any dental provider, or use a MetLife Preferred Dentist Program provider to lower your out-of-pocket costs.
Our vision plan offers you a national network of optometrists, ophthalmologists, and opticians for your eye care needs. Your vision benefit provides you with savings up to 40% on your eyewear needs.
Flexible spending accounts allow you to reduce your taxable income by having pre-tax contributions deducted from your paychecks. Allianz offers two flexible spending account options: health care and dependent care. Funds in your health care flexible spending account can be used for eligible out of pocket health care expenses. Examples of eligible health care expenses include medical and dental deductibles and co-pays, coinsurance, prescription co-pays, and eyeglasses. Funds in your dependent care flexible spending account can be used for eligible dependent care expenses, such as day care.
Allianz encourages you to take ownership in the value you create. The Allianz Employee Stock Purchase Plan provides eligible employees a convenient way to purchase shares of Allianz Aktiengesellschaft ("Allianz SE") at a discounted rate.
All full-time and regular part-time employees are eligible to join the plan on their first day of employment. The company will match 100% of your contributions up to 7.5%. Employees become 100% vested in company contributions after three years of service.
The PHSA is a savings vehicle allowing you to save via convenient payroll deductions for post-employment health care expenses. Any earnings realized in your account are tax-free; after your employment terminates, the money in your account is not taxed when you or an eligible dependent request reimbursement for an eligible health care expense.
Allianz provides employer-paid short- and long-term disability insurance in addition to basic life and accidental death and dismemberment. You may choose optional life insurance and optional accidental death and dismemberment for yourself, spouse, domestic partner, or children.
At Allianz, we recognize that our employees have commitments that extend far beyond the workday – which is why we offer a variety of employee and family personal services. The EAP offers professional, confidential, short-term counseling services designed to help employees (or their dependents) cope with a wide range of personal, work, and family issues.
We encourage our employees to keep learning and growing. We also offer in-house training on a variety of business-related topics, including an Online Learning Center that offers over 200 eLearning classes 24/7. No matter what your area of expertise, the Online Learning Center makes the training you need to succeed accessible at your convenience.
