    Pros

    Great community involvement - fast to do the right thing during times of crisis

    Cons

    POLITICS. Culture is dreadful. Relo'd leaders are not ready for changing the culture and those that are cannot do it alone.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. People are joining, people are leaving. It's a great success when you can lure talent yes, but can you keep them???

    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 have been working at AXA Equitable full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Co-workers are capable and friendly
    * 24 vacation days/year for everyone is a HUGE plus
    * benefits in general are solid
    * the company genuinely seems to want to create an inclusive environment
    * work at home opportunities are abundant, at least in IT

    Cons

    * company is in flux now. Most people are being moved out of the NY metro area
    * if you're salary is already at least in the 40% percentile of the market range, then you shouldn't expect a salary unless you do something "transformational." This is a new olicy.
    * most IT work is outsourced to vendors either in India or the U.S. Opportunities for interesting IT work as a US employee are limited.

    Advice to Management

    * start treating the employees with respect and dignity again
    * take a critical look at whether it's really worth putting all the systems knowledge in the hands of people outside the company

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits are provided. The ability to work at home at least one day a week is a great plus.

    Cons

    If you are a satisfactory worker, which they believe is 70 percent of all workers, then your salary is capped at 40 percent of the market value.

    I worked at AXA Equitable (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great pay and generous PTO. Very flexible work from home policy

    Cons

    In IT everything is project driven, and if your project ends and you can't jump on another project your in jeopardy of being laid off. There is constant of being laid off or your job being outsourced. I've never worked in a more fear driven environment.
    The new senior management is cutting jobs faster than i have ever seen a company do cuts - all in a capricious manner.

    Advice to Management

    Create sustainable budgets for the year and stop the shell game project driven approach.
