      I worked at XL Catlin full-time

      Pros

      Nice environment with plenty of inner office social events

      Cons

      Remote training by someone that was never in the office and was a horrible trainer/teacher of a new process. No performance reviews even when requested and promised to be given to know work status.

      Advice to Management

      Don't lie to your employees and actually have three person that is going to train people be someone I the same office, who isn't an arrogant idiot. Don't punish your employees for telling the truth.
