    I worked at AXA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a great strong company

    Cons

    They downsized considerably. Wound up wearing many, many hats. Long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build up, don't keep taking away. Employees are worn out and culture is suffering.

    Pros

    Solid company, with great products and good people.

    Cons

    Be prepared to learn by lots of trial and error. Not the best introductory place to learn or develop the necessary skills needed for the industry. Definitely need work on what they do for their new employees. Basically "welcome to the company, now get out there".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your managers have decisive plans prepared for their new employees. Need to take another look at their intro program to help guide the new (especially younger ) newbies.
