    Pros

    Dynamic environment, allows underwriters to underwrite, be creative and take risks. Supportive of career goals.

    Cons

    compensation is weak in comparison to the rest of the market - difficult to hold onto good coworkers, managers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    invest more in people and technology to help people do their jobs better

    Pros

    *Good opportunity to manage a book of business
    *Competitive Pay and excellent PTO

    Cons

    *Lack of structured training and communication by managers made work a lot more stressful than it needed to be
    *PTO was generous, but it was always hard to use since you are essentially managing a book of business. Even taking two days off in a row would lead to a mountain of e-mails and plenty of other issues to attend to upon your return.
    *Very slow IT system that is not conducive to business.
    *Micromanagement and high employee turnover resulted in low morale for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on training their employees and understand that micromanagement starts hurting the business goals of AIG.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flex time and holiday schedule. 4+ weeks PTO time the 1st year.

    Cons

    Managers breathe down your neck constantly. Not treated like a professional, but like kindergarteners. They lie to employees. Low salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up. We don't need 4 managers to report to.

    Pros

    - good benefits (paid time off pool of days), option to work from home, flex time

    Cons

    Some managers are better than others. Performance review process is not transparent. Over the past few years, there were rolling layoffs. Management was trying to fit all NY employees into one building to reduce real estate costs. They also started outsourcing many positions. There was not much job stability. There was a group called WOW (way of working) that infiltrated each department for a certain amount of time. Their goal was to understand the department's purpose, determine any inefficiencies and how to reduce those inefficiencies....which usually resulted in layoffs.
