    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Financial Group for more than a year

    Pros

    Good starting point - maybe 1 year here and you will need to leave if at the company any longer.

    Cons

    The issues with GAIG all lie within their company structure. One employee may have 7 managers in their division alone. The amount of micromanagement is insane. Also, IT will take 6 years before it will be developed. Slow moving company with unfair practices. The pay gap is real here and this company is unwilling to take any risk. Conservative company with poor management. Don’t recommend working here unless you have to.
