    I have been working at AXA as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You are given a lot leeway to learn, grow and provide your inputs to what you think is the best way to tackle a particular issue

    Cons

    Although in official work are all in English, employees indulge in French among themselves. It's perfectly fine for people who know french, but for someone still learning, it is a bit of a setback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything seems fine till now. Just keep it up

A top-manager was recovered at work, but director of Ukrainian subdivision every way prevents to execution of decision of court and refuses in payment awards by judgment. Such sort of actions laed to new trials. On initiatives by adjustment of disputes nobody reacts. Appeal to complaints officer of АХА group in also were not given any results. Position of АХА group surprised with possible negative reputation risks for a company.
