    Pros

    office location central in Zurich

    Cons

    Depending on which team you work for your experience will vary tremendously. Claims at Axis Re (Zurich) has a very high turnover and has difficulty retaining its people due to weak management and broken team relationships. If you are interviewing to join this team, ask interviewer WHY they are looking to fill the position and WHY the person before you departed.

    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings

    Pros

    Pay and benefits, peers and personalities of other members of the staff.
    Hours are 'family friendly'.
    Very little personal stress.

    Cons

    (My personal view)

    This is a good place of work for an established professional or one who is happy to remain at their level or thereabouts as they tend to recruit externally for the better job opportunities.

    Very 'American' e.g. a lot of pep talks about how great it is, not sure this is a common view.

    Very little guidance on progression/feedback on performance (apart from the annual review).

    What you are able to do varies from team to team regarding aspects like acceptable hours, being late and work attire - confusing.

    Computer systems are pooor.

    Senior management did not seem to be widely approachable.

    A lot of 'authorisation' required from higher up the ranks even for basic tasks - which takes away employees self-value. This makes it harder for the junior members of the team to prove themselves to those higher up in the organisation. (You are reliant on your own boss to champion you and your cause) which in some instances seems not to have happened for a few years.

    Office is exceptionally quiet - layout most likely to blame as opposed to the individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the teams.
    Have clear career paths for employees with real goals set to achieve the next level.
    Acknowledge those who go above and beyond.
    Try and get involved / support an external social aspect so all employees are able to participate.
