    I worked at Catlin Group

    Pros

    Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    The company has been a bit messed up when acquired by XL, and lots of the good people have already gone. Be cautious if you want to apply.

    I worked at Catlin Group full-time

    Pros

    Reward long term employees well Wages are on average good Transparent/ flat structure - ability to talk to all levels of seniority

    Cons

    Top heavy organisation - very little room for career progression Little direction at current (with merger - so short term issues) Little motivation to raise the bar - Financial reward is not sufficient

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to promote younger talent if the opportunities arise Cement a structure - its almost worse to not say anything than to put in place a structure and have to change it slightly to be a best fit

    I have been working at Catlin Group

    Pros

    Catlin has some great people to work with who live by the Catlin values of transperency, integrity and teamwork. There is a good culture and it's a nice atmosphere to work in. The executives are accessible to staff and with an open floor plan culture, there is a sense of having a voice and being heard. They have invested in updating their offices as well - so it's a nice, modern clean environment. Also a very... strong leadership team and executive team.

    Cons

    Catlin is going through some major changes and whilst it is exciting, there is a risk what makes Catlin such a great place to work will be eroded by becoming a larger organization. I am hopeful it doesn't become too bureaucratic, with too many layers of management and they can retain what makes Catlin such a great place to work.

    I worked at Catlin Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work is generally challenging and there's usually plenty to do. Pay is pretty good. Computer systems and technology are modern and up to date.

    Cons

    The management in the Shared Services department at the Scottsdale, AZ office is very arrogant and stuck up and has nothing better to do than to spend hours and days focusing on very minor issues and figuring out how to get employees out of jams without having to fire them even though it's the employee's fault. If you're a contractor here, you're definitely an outsider as the management here will protect and... side with their employees at all costs in any disputes with contractors even if the employee is at fault in the dispute and lies and makes up stories about the contractor. If you're an employee, you're one of them, and you can pretty much get away with anything without getting fired, but if you're a contractor, you're basically a nobody and cannot win in any dispute with an employee. There are also very few career opportunities at the Scottsdale office, so if you're a contractor, you'll likely wait a long time before being offered a position with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and start treating everyone fairly and stop trying to protect your employees at all costs and letting them get away with anything without any consequences.
