I have been working at AIG full-time

Pros

Neptune NJ location: pleasant area. Underwriters here are knowledeable and share their knowledge freely, as do a number of other staff.

Cons

Merged this year with Medical Excess, and now we are in zonal silos, with very little communication between zones. Two out of the three zonal VPs know very little of Group underwriting, so they have unrealistic expectations. Crushing workload and no understanding from management. No raises. Company tries to limit bonuses. Too many scattered, faulty administration systems, too much manual/clerical work to underwrite cases.

Advice to Management

You need to care more about your employees or you will continue to lose them. We need to act like we're all one company - not 3 separate ones.

  1. "Some super talented people to work with, but a lot of disorganization plus extreme bureaucracy and terrible HR policies"

    I worked at AIG as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented people to work with and overall positive work environment (i.e., flexible hours when needed, work at home when needed but not ever day, family flexibility, etc.). There are SOME great businesses with challenging positions if you are in a business that is growing and profitable.

    Cons

    Extreme corporate bureaucracy -- every decision requires layers upon layers of approvals. You often get approval to take action then 3 months later are told to stop because someone 5 layers above has a new strategy or new rules. HR policies are ridiculous and HR staff are either overloaded or incompetent to say the least -- found it downright impossible to hire people to work for you, even for approved positions that are in the budget.

    Advice to Management

    Give executive managers more power to make decisions and eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy. Replace the entire HR organization with one that supports employee growth and develops talent versus the current staff that just enforces rules and provides zero valuable support.


  2. "This is an AIG company. It's a low paing job..."

    I have been working at AIG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many health/dental/vision benefit options. Health insurance costs $300/mo for a family, but there are good retirement account options. Training is provided.

    Cons

    Very production oriented for $10-12/hr. Basically your benefit options will eat up your paycheck. Also, you must always push out the numbers. Quantity is valued over quality. Don't try to make a contribution or improve practices just keep on the treadmill to produce your numbers- work harder and faster- not smarter...

    Advice to Management

    Remove some of the layers of upper management. The org chart is too top heavy to get anything done. Everyone has their hands tied which leads to inefficiency.
