    Pros

    Great people, excellent vacation package and benefits, flexible work environment and ability to work from home, and tries to promote from within.

    Cons

    Shifting of U.S. jobs to India is a constant theme, goal is to move most offshore in what they call "co-location" seeing as AXA ABS is a subsidiary of AXA Equitable. Executive Management looking to cut expenses especially staffing to the bone in U.S. leading to unstable work environment and low morale of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, AXA ABS is NOT as successful as you think, it only works because those employees left behind work their tails off. Keep jobs in the U.S. where talented and knowledgeable staff reside. Stop letting go of good dedicated people to save a buck, in the long-run AXA will lose out big time.

    Pros

    Work with great people, providing a valuable service to customers. Pay is good, benefits are good and there is a fair amount of work life balance.

    Cons

    Senior Leaders are out of touch with the reality of the operation. Instead of holding individuals accountable, they go to others in the organization to do the work. This causes a culture of frustration and finger pointing. If I can get them to look at what you're not doing right then they will leave me a lone.

    Advice to Management

    Value and Appreciate your front line. Ask them where the barriers are. Hold VP's and Directors accountable, make improvement plans and stick to them, demand action.
