    • "Could have been much better"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Test Consultant in Cobham, Surrey, South East England, England

        I worked at AXA UK full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Work life balance, salary okay

        Cons

        Ridiculous amounts of nepotism and really short sighted IT strategy.

        Advice to Management

        Stop getting all your IT ideas from Microsoft. They make software, you sell insurance.

        Pros

        Private healthcare, nice view from the office

        Cons

        In its healthcare division there is no learning and development, managers wing-it and are very cliquey, ego over results. The culture is nothing like what AXA advertise it to be and there is very little commitment to its own values
