    Current Employee - Contractor Human Resources in Alpharetta, GA
    Current Employee - Contractor Human Resources in Alpharetta, GA

    I have been working at AXIS Capital Holdings as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was above average
    Benefits package above average

    Cons

    Almost one third of the workforce is contract workers and they are viewed as second class citizens. No respect, ignored, talked down to, dumped on with the tasks/projects no one else wants to do. Morale is poor, no one cares about others or the company or doing a good job. Behind the times in technology, work perks and old fashion values. HR department is the most unorganized and cliquish group I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blow up HR department and start over. Company will never correct morale or turnover issues with the current HR team.

    Former Employee - Business Process Analyst in Alpharetta, GA
    Former Employee - Business Process Analyst in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are competitive

    Cons

    The corporate culture rewards bullying, back stabbing and other shady behavior, HR policies are applied and enforced inconsistently. Some employees are golden and can get away with constant absenses. Other employees do not have the same luxuries. A lot depends on which team you are on and if you are drinking buddies with your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the good employees who have left under questionable circumstances and ask why

    Experience at Axis Re Zurich Depends on Which Business Function/Team You Work For!

    Pros

    office location central in Zurich

    Cons

    Depending on which team you work for your experience will vary tremendously. Claims at Axis Re (Zurich) has a very high turnover and has difficulty retaining its people due to weak management and broken team relationships. If you are interviewing to join this team, ask interviewer WHY they are looking to fill the position and WHY the person before you departed.

    Rough corporate culture

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    AXIS pay very well but there is an expectation that employees will work at over 110% utilization.

    Cons

    Different teams within AXIS play by different rules. For example, telecommuting is not allowed across the entire organization even thought most work may be conducted remotely.
