    Former Employee - Service Desk Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings as a contractor (less than an year)


    Everyone I got to meet in the NYC office are exceptionally kind and respectful. Although there are some really high income earners, the executives treat you as an equal. Free coffee and tea on every floor. Safe working environment. No paid holidays for contractors


    When some users create support tickets for themselves, they tend to stalk you for an immediate resolution. AXIS has money to hire AVP's, SVP's, and department CEO's but not IT staff. Small focus and budget on IT. Outsourcing service desk to India and Phillipines as of 2015.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay contractors on holidays. Consider a better system to track inventory. Don't outsource Service Desk to India, users will be getting upset with tech support quickly.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings.

    Interview Details

    Initially had screening call which was brief with no difficult questions. Second, face interview with dept head who did not know how to interview and didn't ask me any skill or experience questions just wanted to get to know me as a person. Third round of interviews was with the team (4 people). Again, it felt like it was an interview for a sorority - as I was told in preparation we want to see if you can get along with them. The office space was nice - well maintained and newer furnishings, the people I met all appeared friendly on the surface but there was an undercurrent of feelings that I couldn't identify. Filled out employment application, they did background check (no credit check) and no other tests. Easy process, but the decision took 4 weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    Set my rate and they accepted. Normally I was told they do not negotiate. Take their offer or leave it! (Which is very inflexible and full of themselves.)
