    Pros

    Great Work Environment. Managers are willing to train you to do work above your current job level to prepare for promotions.

    Cons

    Lower-level peers don't seem to want to work as a team, and try to be the the "#1" by withholding information that could help you.

    Advice to Management

    Lead your subordinates to work as a TEAM to be #1, not every person for themselves.

    I worked at AIG

    Pros

    Meeting and working with former employees as a team player that worked.

    Cons

    Having other employees leave like me because of former changes in the company.

    Advice to Management

    I have been in the business world environment and have been with team players in this company. I and the co-workers had the accomplished each task that have been put in front of us. That part of each task put before us, was rewarding to me and my co-workers.

    Education is a plus but if you have the business know how you can make.

    Respectfully must be heard.

    Best regards,

    Pros

    Extremely supportive work environment. Challenging work, and very smart, innovative go-workers always look at how to improve. People are generally open, direct and very helpful. I have an incredible manager - best in my career and I see that all the way up my chain of management. So many ways to meet people - through Employee Resource Groups, to Employee Volunteer and community outreach groups - and at our location, we have Toastmasters and "hidden hobbies" at lunch. Very happy with my job.

    Cons

    It is large so you have to be very pro-active about getting involved - but there are lots of opportunities that cross business groups. There is still segmentation between the claims groups and the underwriting groups that could be improved. Some combined team building activities would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep paying attention to those employee surveys - number's matter - but income is generated through happy employees and thus clients.
