    Pros

    I'm constantly challenged by my colleagues and boss to be innovative - turning ideas on their head and doing something different from our competitors. I also like the global reach of XL (22+ countries) as I'm constantly engaging with colleagues around the globe. I previously worked at another global company, but never got the day-to-day engagement with global colleagues like I do here at XL. I specifically like engaging and collaborating with our colleagues in India - we learn so much from each other.

    Cons

    The firm has grown rapidly so there are a lot of processes and procedures that need to be put in place. That provides a great opportunity for me and others to "add value" here at the firm, but it requires a lot of work. Sometimes that excites me and other times I feel overwhelmed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a rotational program for junior-to-mid-level colleagues to spend 6 months in one of our international locations.
