    I worked at XL Group Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small company with a good group of people to work with. The culture is unique but in a very good way. There is a draw each Friday to award people for being compliant on their daily work activity tracking which is part of the culture. The owner is a really great guy.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement to further your career due to it being a small company but if you are happy with where you are at it is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing. You are headed in the right direction.

    I worked at XL Group Inc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a draw for money for entering your daily activity. There is a breakfast on Fridays and pretzels on Monday.

    Cons

    Employees work on teams and those teams don't always cooperate with each other. There aren't many "company" initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Look at employees more equally. Rewards are given for doing a job for some and not for others.

    I worked at XL Group Inc full-time

    Pros

    The people (outside of the owner & his family) are very nice and people you would talk to outside of work.

    Cons

    The owner, Paul. He's the worst. Not many career advancement opportunities. Lots of nepotism with the owner's family working there. The owner would always post nasty things about employees in his blog which he refers to as the XLerator instead of confronting the people so he's a coward. He creates a poor work culture that is very hostile.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the passive aggressive nonsense. Treat employees with respect.

    Pros

    Breakfast on Friday and a drawing for $500 under the counter.

    Cons

    Doesn't honor agreements, cutthroat, doesn't do yearly reviews/raises and cheap. Does "sheath" layoffs, people just disappear.

    Advice to Management

    Give reviews and raises.
