    Good people, great benefits, amazing opportunity.

    Graduate Trainee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsWell compensated and fantastic benefits. Lots natural growth is leading to increased opportunities. Good time to begin with Catlin because the potential for growth is enormous. Employees tend to be nice individuals and hard workers. Catlin has a set of values that it appears to actual follow and makes a point of informing its employees about what it is doing.

    ConsCurrent employees and management are very entrenched and are lacking of new/young blood.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in younger employees who can be brought up within the company, don't just hire older established employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company, great people

    Underwriter (Current Employee)

    ProsFeel of small entrepreneurial Company despite being a market leader
    Work flexibility
    Amazing global franchise

    ConsSenior Managers hold themselves in very high regard and sometimes seek ways to elevate themselves even further creating an insider mentality, particular with information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat your leadership role as a reason to become complacent about your skills and experiences. The managers we have are not all equipped to lead the size Company we are becoming. But they are good smart professionals who will excel if they focus on their own development needs.

    Great Spot for Executives

    Underwriter (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company attracts talented people and the results reflect that. If you are already at a high level position, it is a great place to work.

    ConsSenior management lives within its own little bubble. Those with friends in high places fail their way up. For those with less experience, opportunities for growth are very limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in some different points of view to the US management team. Working at XL should not be a prerequisite.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Contractor

    (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsExcellent location! Great culture, excellent benefits, very smartpeople, very diverse, great experience.

    People are friendly and helpful (they really believe in teamwork).

    Employees are generally happy and actually care for the company's well being.

    There are a lot of older employees here who have already established their careers. You can learn a lot from them.

    ConsThe company is still growing so at times you might feel over-worked and a little stressed. They need to hire more people to spread out the workload.

    Company with nice corporate culture but very little opportunity for career growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood work-life balance
    Nice corporate culture
    Good benefits

    ConsVery small salary increases that do not keep up with the market. Not a good place to work if you are looking to grow and advance your career. As others have mentioned this is a better place for highly experienced professionals who are looking to settle down. Salary increases don't keep up with the market, 2-3% salary increases are the norm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in technology, make salary increases competitive with the market to prevent an exodus of talent. Consider cost of living increases plus merit increases to retain the best and brightest.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company

    Database Architect (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe Atlanta office is fantastic. The views of the city from the high-rise building with no walls on the outside are great. The people at the company are all friendly and easy to work with.

    ConsUpper management is not quite used to IT and they have some odd constraints on software developers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, great job. Let the IT department have more influence over the company's Information Technology.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
