    I worked at AXA XL full-time

    Pros

    Best working hours, flexible shifts, good perks, employee centric

    Cons

    Expect quick growth only if you can chit chat with the management and sit with them all the time. Those who know how to work have to wait for long-long time for growth Too much favoritism and lack of respect for hard working and SME's

    I worked at AXA XL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people work there!

    Cons

    If you like micro management and passive aggression, then this is the place for you. If you know insurance - this is not the place for you as management themselves don't, but believe they do and you'll have to forget everything you thought you knew! They also don't do internal promotions because that may mean you know what you are doing and even more than management!
