    Pros

    ability to control your career path; great fellow employees; fair salaries and supper bonuses.

    Cons

    iffy former senior management. Thankfully they have passed on. Rough time with current financial ratings although there is tons of money in the bank! Seems all a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wake up, where have you been the past five years besides feeding at the trough raking in the bucks. I am sorry your stock is now worthless, but it is your own fault. You should have stopped the silly whooping it up years ago and actually gone to work and done your job.

    I worked at XL Group

    Pros

    The division I worked in allowed me to get exposure to all sides of the business rather than repeating the same tasks. I was given a lot of freedom to get my work done without my manager always watching over my shoulder. I also worked with some of the smartest people I have ever met.

    Cons

    The company as a whole does not have much spirit or life to it. It is very much a company where you go in and get your work done, then you go home. There was not much corporate culture and it did not offer many functions outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn to invest our money in better funds and rework IT so it more functional for the smaller business units.
