AIG was an amazing company to work for prior to 2009. After the financial market crashed of course there were many changes with the company. But for the most part AIG tried their best to keep employees employed and conduct business as usual. The benefits were excellent and management supported diversity.
Enjoyed flexible hours, going to conventions, and getting to know brokers. Old software (excel) led to large amounts of data input. Worked as a team, but there was competition between teammembers, and performance was strongly based upon numbers of sales.
*Great work and life balance *Great Employee Resource Groups *Great benefits *A lot of restructuring through out the company which involves several employee riffs mainly in three and four quarters *The compensation is not always alignment with current job markets
Great benefits and work life balance
several employee riffs, constant restructuring of senior leadership which can appear to be an unstable enivroment
I loved my job, my clients, my co-workers and my direct manager and his manager. But from the day I started, there was the constant threat of being let go due to organizational restructuring. The financial constraints led to less development and customization of our systems which would have dramatically improved the user experience and our competitive value in the marketplace. I loved that we were given 16 hours of paid volunteer time and that our region was so active in charitable events and diversity and inclusion (education and awareness).
Benefits - intelligent co-workers
Salary, constant threat of RIF.
Very typical of a large insurance/financial broker. Brings in young men and women and trains them for a week, then sends them out on their own to sell 403b and 457 retirement plans to clients. Not a lot of support after the first week of training. Top producers are rewarded with sales manager roles. Not all top producers are management material.
The culture of AIG changed as I progressed in my career. Promotion from within was strong, but as I went into a niche market there was little room for growth. Depending on the manager the experience with the company could be great or sour. My last job title I was not compensated at the proper salary grade because I came from another office. Instead of increasing my salary and salary grade, it was left three grades lower. I'd applied for positions with the same job title and the same job description but was told that I could not get the salary grade three levels higher.
AIG was a challenging, yet rewarding place to work. While the work environment was fairly conservative, the people were friendly and approachable. Things do tend to move slower at such a large company, so pack your patience. You do, however, learn a great deal of business sense, competitive insight, and power moves at AIG.
