Not bad for remote working

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Once you get the hang of it and the nature of the work it's fine. There's pressure from managers to meet targets but it's a private firm so as you'd expect. There best part of working here was the feeling part of a team with your co-workers even though they could be at the opposite end of the country to you.

Was great until outsourced

Good company, highly skilled motivated employees, until outsourced. Now the company is losing its core people and skill base. Remaining staff are disgruntled, unmotivated, feel let down…..consequently leaving in numbers.

Stressful

Poor upper management led to stressful working conditions. Definitely a "if your liked then you advance" environment. Made to pay back minutes if you are late but have to accumulte time to get it back at a later date if you work over. Be prepared to be put on a guilt trip if you ever have a day off sick. All in all a very toxic environment to work in.

Pros

Some shift rotations are good

Cons

A very clique environment to work in, poor managment, poor reception of critical and objective feedback.

Decent

Good pay and opportunities for progression which are the best factors. The customer service advisor role has strict targets, very intensely monitored and not advertised accurately to what it actually is, training is 12 weeks and intense, you will have to learn a LOT. Calls are checked and the people who assess them are very picky.

Would not recommend working there Worst place I have ever worked

No support from management at all Can’t trust anything you are being told by management Not professional Old boys club I could go on but it’s boring Have found the perfect job now where my talent and hard work are recognised and rewarded

Pros

Can’t think of any Other than my colleagues we supported each other

Cons

Lots, long hours, expected to do three peoples job, don’t listen to any constructive feedback, work hard for no reward and promised things that they can’t deliver

Always behind with keeping up with average pay for the role

Fast paced, stressful but Full time is only 35 hours and good benefits I.e pension and holiday purchase. However quite inflexible for part timers and having to work some weekends.

Pros

See above

Cons

Underpaid, undervalued, overlooked.

Bournemouth seems to be completely overlooked by the executive committee. There is little integration within the bigger company. Unless your face fits or you push your way to the front, don't expect to even be acknowledged.

Pros

Perks are good if they suit your needs, If you're not into a pension and healthcare then maybe not, Hybrid working (can choose to be in the office if preferable)

Cons

You are a number. Pay isn't good.

Axa was a good place to work

It is one of the best places to work. The organisation is very friendly and professional. Except for very few of the employees not many stress you. But the work is challenging. The technology teams are global. You can move across countries if you have the right skills. I would recommend AXA to my friends. I would always recollect my days in AXA UK as the best days of my life. It was my best times of my career.

Customer caring company

Although AXA PPP healthcare is part of a global company, the work ethics are second to none. The staff are taught that the care of the customer is very firmly the most important thing and it's not unusual that a member of staff will go above and beyond what is generally considered good service. The company ensures that the staff are also cared for properly with many support programmes available, both physical and mental wellbeing. AXA PPP healthcare is in the forefront of developing a better and better holistic approach to a person's wellbeing.

Pros

A forward thinking, all encompassing insurance company.
