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

Pros

Great atmosphere, fantastic colleagues all of whom are friendly and helpful. Good location for quality of life. Working hours not excessive.

Cons

Slow pace. Outdated technology and lack of drive to innovate or change quickly. Employees dont have access to up to date tools and lack of budget is always an excuse to not do something

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

    Pros

    - As a large group, there are fairly good opportunities for mobility.
    - Interesting job with possibilities to work in international teams.
    - Most entities in the group share the same vision and values.

    Cons

    - Some bigger entities are too old fashioned and move too slow.
    - Smaller entities are sometimes neglected. Better be big and French than small and... not French.
    - As in any French company, there are two types of citizen: the French, and the rest.
    - Too many pointless reorganizations that add no value and serve only the interests of the top management.
    - Too much politics in Paris HQ. Better stay away from there.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more agile. Things are moving fast and new markets will not wait for us.
