    Approves of CEO

    I worked at XL Group Inc full-time for more than 6 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.

    Pros

    Free breakfast on Fridays. That's it.

    Cons

    I worked here for five years. Over my tenure I was lauded (mostly privately... more on that later) for producing results very quickly and very efficiently; I busted my butt to get projects completed. I worked late, I put in 10 hour shifts when necessary, I helped out on more projects than anyone else in the company. Quite frankly, the last one I completed was a work of art... one manager who wasn't directly involved...

    Advice to Management

    Knock it off with the time-wasting meetings. For god's sake, cut out the micromanagement lunacy. Get some people in management who aren't related to each other, so that you can finally hear someone else's viewpoints. They don't have the balls to say it to you, but NOBODY likes the useless, antiquated xlerator, paul. Get over yourself.

    I worked at XL Group Inc

    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.

    I worked at XL Group Inc full-time for more than 4 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.
