    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, you have challenging work.

    Cons

    Unless you roll the dice in your favor and get lucky, there is no chance of growth opportunity.

    The communication is ineffective. I don't care about flashy pomp and circumstance comm pieces. All we, as employees, want is to be kept in the know from the top down. Dazzling and expensive c-suite road shows that are not hitting all employees are not impressive when you preach "cut costs".

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to your team.
    In a company where every third employee has a "VP" in their title, it is time to stop taking and take action in re-evaluating your internal situation.

    I have been working at AXIS Capital Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company had pros but under new direction there are currently not any.

    Cons

    This company should be called CNA not Axis. Upper management is bringing over 'everyone' from CNA and getting rid of true talent.

    Due to saving bucks for the merger people didn't get raises or promotions. Now that it has happened they still haven't taken care of employees.

    I have been working at AXIS Capital Holdings as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was above average
    Benefits package above average

    Cons

    Almost one third of the workforce is contract workers and they are viewed as second class citizens. No respect, ignored, talked down to, dumped on with the tasks/projects no one else wants to do. Morale is poor, no one cares about others or the company or doing a good job. Behind the times in technology, work perks and old fashion values. HR department is the most unorganized and cliquish group I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Blow up HR department and start over. Company will never correct morale or turnover issues with the current HR team.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are competitive

    Cons

    The corporate culture rewards bullying, back stabbing and other shady behavior, HR policies are applied and enforced inconsistently. Some employees are golden and can get away with constant absenses. Other employees do not have the same luxuries. A lot depends on which team you are on and if you are drinking buddies with your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the good employees who have left under questionable circumstances and ask why

    I worked at AXIS Capital Holdings (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AXIS pay very well but there is an expectation that employees will work at over 110% utilization.

    Cons

    Different teams within AXIS play by different rules. For example, telecommuting is not allowed across the entire organization even thought most work may be conducted remotely.

    Advice to Management

    See what departments are not providing value

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    Bürostandort mitten in Zürich

    Cons

    Abhängig vom Team, in dem man arbeitet, können die Erfahrungen ganz unterschiedlich sein. Die Schadensabteilung hat eine hohe Fluktuation und Schwierigkeiten, die Leute zu halten, aufgrund des schwachen Managements und zerrütteter Verhältnisse im Team. Fragen Sie beim Bewerbungsgespräch für dieses Team, WARUM diese Position besetzt werden soll und WARUM der Vorgänger gegangen ist.
