too small
Assistant Vice President Inland Marine Manager (Former Employee) –  Summit, NJAugust 30, 2018
The company is too small to play with the big companies in the Northeast market yet they demanded huge growth when the opportunity was not available due to being a startup with limited product offerings.

We perform only WC claims on traveling carnival and the entertainment business. It's face passed and you must think outside the box. Autonomy and collaboration is key. Multi states jurisdictions.
Pros
Autonomy, No micromanagement
Cons
Multi states, Job descriptions and expectations in wring

Good co-workers. Not so good managers
Large Loss Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 18, 2018
I was there for 12 years and when I first started, it was a smaller, more closely knit company. My experience was valued and I was placed in positions where I had the confidence of senior management. As time went on, the company grew, the workload increase, but the staffing did not and there was little time to do the job properly. Once the merger with Catlin came about, the company grew even further, new management was installed and my experience, work ethic and dedication became an after thought. At the end, it ws not a pleasnant working experience.

Productive and fast paced.
Project Coordinator/Project Analyst (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 24, 2018
Typical day at work starts off with checking email and prioritizing for the day setting up meetings to ensure daily tasks are followed.
I learned to be more selective when applying for other positions.
Management was not approachable and set in their ways.
Everyone was very friendly and eager to assist.
The hardest part of the job was knowing their was no room for advancement. The location was great.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
lack of work.

Claims Assistant (Former Employee) –  Addison, TXFebruary 9, 2018
I was a contract employee and only wished the position could have been direct hire. It was a terrific group that I supported. Only negative was that this is a global company which makes for an impersonal touch in matters of HR.
Pros
Great team
Cons
Global company - HR is relatively impersonal.

Friendly and productive workplace
Underwriting Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 1, 2018
I experienced a friendly and productive workplace at Xl Catlin. It is a collaborative environment in which management encourages innovation and teamwork. However, my journey didn't allow opportunity for advancement. The company has become less generous with the benefit package and salary increases, but have maintained a bonus over the years. They have always been very considerate regarding family matters. I always enjoyed Global Day of Giving which set aside one day to volunteer and give back to the community. It afforded you the opportunity to meet your co-workers from different strata of the company. It is a good company to partner with.
Pros
Family oriented, encourage townhalls -feedback
Cons
little opportunity for advancement, negligible increases

A good place to work
IT Engineer (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTMay 25, 2017
XL Catlin was a great place to work for many years. The colleagues, culture, and compensation were all fantastic. The company strives not to be the most profitable, but the most admired in their industry.

Department Specific
Claims Manager (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTApril 26, 2017
Different groups within the company operate by different sets of rules. The overall corporate environment is positive with a good work culture and adequate advancement opportunity. There are certain departments within the company however that are not subject to the overall culture and operate by their own set of rules. This part of the company (a certain underwriting and claims group) does not partake in the overall corporate culture and is closed off from the rest of the company. No dress code, no standard hours, no participation in corporate events, etc... Some people like this and others do not. If you want to work a 9-5 job with good pay and good benefits then this group is for you. If you are looking for advancement within the company, merit based pay or the potential to transfer to another group within the company, then you are in for a rude awaking. Just know what you are getting into...
Pros
Pay + Benefits
Cons
Poor leadership and merit recognition within certain groups

XL Catlin - A company to grow with
VP & Sr Mngr BCM Program Americas and Bermuda (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTFebruary 8, 2017
I had the great honor to work with this company for 5 and 1/2 years in a position that enabled me to grow in my area of professional interest and personally as a leader. The really encourages collaboration, open sharing of ideas and communication. You hear this from other companies, but this one really has it. If you find a good opportunity and there is a solid fit, I cannot stress the value of applying. This company has a bright future in one of the most challening business environments ever. innovation, trust, execution and compassion are the hallmark of the leadership team and the organization.
Pros
Communications, compassion, training, leadership, listening and of course comp
Cons
Complex organization that really can be difficult to navigate
