I interviewed with several company managers individually and in small groups at several corporate offices around the country. The process took several weeks and extensive travel. My final interviews were in the Chicago, Illinois home offices. My interviews were with several corporate officers there and their staff. The job offer came from the division president .and..mmanager
Great place to work. Everyday is something new. The job is very fulfilling, you will meet new people everyday and help them work towards achieving their goals. You will be in charge of making your own schedule as well as maintaining and surpassing quotas. Job is fast paced and fun. Great trainings and coaching from management.
If you are just starting as a financial advisor, this is not the place for you. You need to have a lot of contacts and clients in your funnel on day one so you can ensure success. It is commission based, so get used to living off your savings.

Customer service organization was a godsent! Most co- workers were friendly and professional. The culture was antiquated but was trying to improve. There was plenty of training available but not for the day to day task. There was a get it youself attitude. Politics was the hardest part of the job. It was enjoyable to network amongst some peers.
I was told the job would cover a certain area and when I got hired the area was completely different. The person that hired me left the company. I was working with clients that did not want to talk to an advisor
Office was in a great location
Little team work. Working with clients that didn’t want or need your help
I was initially hired as a financial advisor that would receive certification during the training program. Subsequently I found out that I was the first person in the district that was hired and successfully completed the program. AIG was not equipped to train, coach or promote for the job that I was hired to do.
Very poor management carrot and stick approach to managing advisors, poor compensation. Lack of opportunities for advancement. The district manager needs to retire and let someone who really knows how to grow a team take over. Bad job choice.
Setting own schedule
Financial Services Team - Their heart is in the right place, but way too difficult to get anything done. Company should really work on streamlining workflow.
Make your own schedule
Very little support
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.
