I have been working at AXIS Capital Holdings full-time

Pros

Generally, the company is a great company- great pay and benefits. If you land in the right division and location, I would advise to stay with the company long term.

Cons

Depending on which office you are located in, will depend on whether or not you think the company is great. Management can be extremely reactionary, "good old boy" network, and manipulative...or incompetent. Other departments, from my experience, can be absolutely exceptionally wonderful departments. The company brags at having the best underwriters, and they do have great underwriters. However, none of them are home grown. They typically recruit from other companies because they lack in training within the company. If you land in the right department, you will enjoy yourself and I would say this company is by FAR a long term company you would want to stay with for years to come; the exact opposite if you land with a location where they deem "you do not fit in." They will smile to your face but have no qualms of breaking each and every HR rule possible. They will constructively find a way to force you out. They just need a good lawsuit and the toxic portion could be resolved. It is a shame because it is an excellent company.

Advice to Management

Why? Good old boys network, especially certain regions.

    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.
