    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.
