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.
The managers tend to micromanage the employees and there are not any positions open. No one ever receives a raise as many employees have been at the same rate since being hired and individuals stay in their positions, as open opportunities are typically lower salaries.
M-f and latest time worked is 5pm
Micro management, insufficient training, lack of growth and advancement
We worked hard and had very supportive relationships with the other employees. Management was always trying to restructure The overall philosophy was constantly changing
Had layoffs and restructuring frequently like every few years
I enjoyed my coworkers, the job function in itself, the flexibility to work remotely when necessary, my mentor and assistant manager were both great as educators and as people. The main drawback, and it was a big one, was an incompetent, recluse manager who did not much enjoy being around people, seemed dismissive of female opinions, talked about women's attractiveness in the work place, and really lacked expertise in the field we were in, and was in the office what seemed like three days a week on average.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

I love AIG!!!! I love my teammates, my mentor, my pay, my paid vacay, my ability to work from home the benefits and to top it off AIG loves its employees! I live in the great City of Houston and when Harvey hit, AIG STEPPED UP! AIG treated its employees like our customers, like we were invaluable!! There was an entire team dedicated to locating each employee and sending boat and helicopter rescues to employees, customers , and anyone we knew!! Yes, helicopters!! They provided loans and grants to employees impacted. They donated over a million in relief to the city! We were notified not to worry about our jobs to worry about family first! At AIG , our company statement reads something like “ we promise to be socially responsible, to go above and beyond for our clients so they know how important they are to us”.....AIG and all who represent this company from the top down truly live by this... I experienced it first hand.
Great pay benefits work friends
Have not come across one
The people are great.. Hardest part of the job would be the irregular hours of work. Everyone is willing to help everyone. They have open door policy for those in management positions where you can readily approach a manage should you have any questions or concern.
free coffee, high salary
Stressful, not family oriented and no job security. Difficult to know who to contact within any given department and no real cohesiveness between home office and the branch offices.
Large company many departments
Large company, difficult to maneuver
Every big company has their good ways and uncomfortable ways of handling employer/employee relations. From the lower - paid employees up to the highly compensated ( whatever that means ) no one is equal in dollars on any level. In many big companies today employers are looking to cut back. They call it: hard decisions:All in all, big and small companies today, are making more demands on would be hires that simply are not realistic to the cost of living and the wages and the wages that they are offering. $45,000. sounds like a lot of money but not in today's world.
I was employed.
Answers sometimes take too long for a required resolution.
A lot of autonomy and independence within my job. They are supportive of education and promotion within the company. There is a great sense of teamwork and ambition, but the downside is raises and bonuses. Unless you are promoted or advanced in the company it is very hard to get a raise within your own position
supportive of advancement; vacation time; remote work
raises and bonuses
