Have a look on what she has to say about her experience:
In Allianz, there is a slogan that goes, ‘Allianz is the home for those who dare’. I cannot agree more and find this even more true at the Global Digital Factory.
I first started working at the GDF as a working student in the Communication team. Being passionate about digitalization and communications, my role as a communication specialist could not be any more perfect. I was able to interview Product Owners on their latest innovative projects in Allianz’s customer journeys and subsequently write articles on these interesting topics.
Karen's switch to UX Research
In my journey with the GDF, there was a point where I wanted to dive more into User Experience Research as part of my professional learning growth. My manager agreed without hesitation and a couple of weeks after, I was moved to the UX team, working on User Research project of Allianz Reinsurance. Such flexibility in a big corporation like Allianz is refreshing and it shows that my managers and colleagues strive to make a direct impact by giving me the possibility to grow professionally and personally.
