Pros

It's growth in the marketplace, it's competetiveness with other companies, it's relationships with the brokers

Cons

The salaries are not competitive, they favor hiring kids straight from college for higher position versus promoting from within. They frown upon employees using their sick time, even though they give us 8 days of it a year, we have a VP in client services who is fantatical to the point of bullying/harrassment in his attempts for us to be healthier as a means to not call in sick. We have managers who try to make us give them reasons we are using sick days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that you have some talented people working for you already. Stop hiring children for jobs they are clearly not ready for.

    AIG is a good place to work and a great place to gain experience if you're not "faint of heart."

    Pros

    AIG is an excellent place to work if you want to gain experience handling very complicated matters for very high profile accounts from "Day 1". The experience you gain in a couple of years at AIG would take you a decade or more to acquire anywhere else. You have ALOT of freedom in most positions to make your job truly "your job". Overall, the company is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The downsides are really the flip-sides of each of the best reasons for working for this company. As noted, you gain incredible experience handling very complicated matters for high profile accounts from your first day. The down-side is that you really need to learn alot on your own. There is little training and even less in the way of established procedure and process. The breadth of experience you gain in a short time is impressive, but it can be stressful, too. AIG is so huge that it is easy to feel like a small cog in a giant machine and to lose sight of your role in the overall success of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff and organise work so that people can specialize a little more. the work product quality would improve as would employee morale and customer satisfaction.
