Inspired leadership in Financial Lines claims
Claims Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 20, 2017
All levels of leadership are competent, fair, and empathetic. Some did not care for employee forced rankings during performance appraisals, but I was consistently a high performer, so I enjoyed it.
Pros
Large company, lot of growth opportunity, upward and some laterally
Cons
Like most large companies, they have outsourced a great deal of shared services, and went thru a period of downsizing

OK place at best

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 18, 2017
Company has been in a state of flux since CEOs retirement in 2015. Sadly, the CEO that was put in place (Hancock) was asked to retire. Company is going thru a lot of organizational changes.

Working at AIG taught me alot about work life balance.
Underwriting Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 16, 2017
I was the assistant to one of the CEO's. He actually had 2 and we split the work load. Under him I learned how to work hard (not that I didn't know how to prior to him) and balance life and family. The culture was so diverse. The work itself was easily mastered making room for new challenges.

FINANCIAL ADVISOR (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 16, 2017

Valic Processing of Retirement Accounts
Processor (Current Employee) –  Amarillo, TXOctober 14, 2017
Work is stressful with time and quality regulations.
Every key stroke and mouse movement is recorded for productivity purposes.
Requires a lot of knowledge of different policies, federal and state laws in order to complete tasks correctly.
Each request is rechecked for quality and scored a Pass or a Fail.

However, AIG does give to the employees some benefits like free popcorn on the last Friday of the month. Free drinks such coffee, tea, and fountain cokes.

AIG likes to give to charity, we on occassion will have jeans week. We pay $5 to wear jeans all week in which the money goes to a charity that was selected for that week. Participation is optional.

Times have changed
Director, Worksite Operations (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 10, 2017
It’s a large corporation with many rules that make it hard to get job done and compensation is always a concern. Short term insentive plan is a joke. Hopefully with new CEO things will change, now looking at growing the business instead of selling off.

Good company but unstable job security. Company and departmental changes are constant so job stability was often uncertain. Great benefits and vacation.
