    Pros

    generous vacation policy
    flexible WFH

    Cons

    no future in Axa IT as an FTE
    the best

    Advice to Management

    not much to say.
    their long term plan for the org is based on little more than reducing size & cost of IT.
    no amount of 'happy talk' is fooling anyone.

    I worked at AXA Equitable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is full of smart, hard working people. Good benefits, flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    I'll start by saying I am not a disgruntled former employee. Major complaint with AXA starts with senior management and the highly charged political environment of being a subsidiary company within the AXA group. Senior management has a "do more with less" attitude like I've never seen before. They want a world class business operation without putting man/woman power behind it. Plus you have to deal with rediculous demands and requirements from the parent company. 10 to 12 hour days are the norm, and that won't even get you ahead of your work load. You will always be behind.

    Advice to Management

    You need more people to meet the requirements you are asking from your employees. You also seriously bundled the charlotte strategy.
