I worked at XL Group

Pros

XL is a great place to start. There are a lot of opportunities to take on responsibility and grow. The other employees, particularly the actuaries, are all very friendly.

Cons

Senior management used to be fairly incompetent but with McGavick this seemed to be changing. Responsibility was not always clearly defined.
