    Legal Dept

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGenerous vacation, bonus and great coworkers.

    ConsCompany is going through a transition. Management doesn't work to retain talent and dismisses employee complaints. People who have been with the Company 10+ years are leaving at an alarming rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat workers like adults. Appreciate the people that are left. Listen to our complaints.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very Good

    Inside Dales (Current Employee) Syracuse, NY

    ProsGood pay and benefits, work environment is good.

    ConsPoor training on the multitude of computer systems required to perform job successfully and timely. Most often an "oh you'll figure it out" attitude.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRamp up your training programs please.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good people, challenging work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood office culture and lots of staff motivation events. Salary is reasonable if you can prove your worth. Like any large company, there can be a bit of turnover and depending on your department, this can mean uneven workload.

    ConsBought out, and the new company changed lots of things, made the office a pretty negative place to work in. I think AXA has been selling off quite a bit of its locations in the past couple of years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour staff are your greatest asset, try to remember that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great experience - wonderful company

    Senior Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWell managed, financial strong, world leading property, casualty, life insurer. Great, world class benefits, many locations to work from. Strong training programs. Well diversified.

    ConsCan be very political. Strong focus on Paris Home Office. As you rise in the ranks, speaking French, or better, being a French national will greatly improve your chances of success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to focus so much on Paris. Good ideas can come from outside of the city of lights.
