Underwriter (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 7, 2013
My experience with the company has been a challenge for advancement. Little to no diversity. Very little room for growth change or advancement. I was not told that we were able to obtain pay increases for receiving the government bailout. You are penalizes for presenting ideas or if you questions ratings for end of the year reviews. When ask how can we help the company save money I suggested using technology vs travel. work from home. Ideas were shot down.The plus is the company offer a pension but of course not guarantee.
Working at AIG taught me alot about work life balance.
Underwriting Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – October 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, MO – October 16, 2017
Enjoyed working with colleagues, management was terrible. Micromanaged to the extreme. Was terminated a month after contacting HR about manager and the way they treated advisors. Would recommend the company, but not the St. Louis office.
Processor (Current Employee) – Amarillo, TX – October 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.
Active Directory Administrator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 11, 2017
American International Group is the largest insurance firm in the United States that has interests in commercial and industrial assets. Project involved day to day server administration maintenance and periodic system upgrades to ensure high availability and minimum downtime.
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.
-Management with poor EQ unable to coach frontline staff to success -Pay not competitive -Lack of defined career paths and ability to advance -Clear disconnect between management's perception of the business and reality of day-to-day operations
Regional Underwriting Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 9, 2017
It was a great place to start a career. I learned a lot and very quickly, as the culture is that of survival of the fittest. The hours became overwhelming as I moved into a management role, but the work was enjoyable.
Job Security, Company Strength, Opportunity to learn
Regional Vice President (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – October 9, 2017
AIG is a great global company which offers opportunity for an abundant number of career choices. Management is fair and the company offers very competitive compensation. The AIG name is solid again. The offerings from the company are amazing and help change peoples lives every day.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 4, 2017
Had an overall great experience. Lots of opportunities to network and meet other teams within the company. At the end of the day, make sure you are on good terms with your direct manager. They have all the power to make or break you!
