    I worked at AIG as an intern

    Pros

    Solid intern salary
    Friendly coworkers
    Networking events with brokers

    Cons

    Very unstructured internship
    No formal training, you just get whatever your manager is willing to give you
    Lack of transparency between upper management and interns
    Insurance industry has limited exit ops

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with your interns. Do routine check ins and list their pros and cons so they know what to improve on if they seek a return offer. Don't hire an intern if there's no spot/need for a full-time role after the internship.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are ridiculously over inflated.

    Cons

    Too many stagnant lifers are preventing a culture of innovation and change.

    Don't focus on being your clients' "most valued insurer" and instead focus on being "the smartest way to prevent loss."

    Pros

    AIG allowed the investigator to complete their work without micromanaging. This worked well for investigators that could schedule and manage themselves.

    Strong presence in the marketplace
    Competitive products and services
    Company has a good reputation especially after the $8B government bailout.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Proactive in employees training and development. Revamp their compensation and benefits packages. I did not see a merit increase the 5 years I was employed there.
