I was a coop student there for 4 months and it was a good experience. Overall very monotonous job, with repeated tasks everyday. The industry itself is not exciting but the company made an effort to do outside activities such as baseball games and beer parties and Christmas celebrations.
I have worked at since I graduated college. I am approaching 8 years. I believe that is a testament to how much I enjoy being an AIG employee. I work with a team of people and a very helpful manager on a daily basis. I have a book of business & brokers that I have built very good relationships with. AIG allowed me to work from home. However, working from home can sometimes be very difficult. I have slowly moved up in the company through my 8 years which means I have gained knowledge of several areas within the company.

Large company with lots of different departments. Management is not really supportive. Should be able to multi-task simultaneously and meet goals. The job is not hard and it's fun to learn about planes and go to air shows.
Reviewing accounts and interacting with the broker in regards to clients needs for personal lines insurance. I have a great working relationship with peers internal and external. The most enjoyable part is satisfaction handling a difficult account leaving the broker with a smile Underwiting Analyst is my offical title
Ability to work overtime
Merit not available
My everyday work has been extremely busy which I feel busy is good. I have learned many different type of systems within the different departments that I have worked in. My experience working within various departments I feel that the management part of the company can be improved by excepting others opinion. As for my co-workers I never had a problem communicating with them. No part of the job is hard. Is hard if we make it hard we need to know how to work around difficult situations and get the job done. My most enjoyable part of the job is knowing what I am doing, working independently and helping others.

The company provides opportunities for advancement but you have to drive your career development. The process can be long and discouraging but if you can find a good mentor it can be much quicker. Senior management has good ideas for the direction of the company but mid-level and front line management sometimes are very slow in adapting the new ideas. The company offers flexible working hours and good benefits which is extremely helpful if you have a family. If you do not have any experience in the industry AIG is a good start. You can learn a lot about the industry and variety of products but you have to be eager to learn. People are very friendly and willing to help.
Training, benefits, flexible working hours, friendly work envieronment
Difficult to find a good mentor, many changes in a short period of time
I worked for this company for one year. This division is trying to compete with the "BIG" boys in the private client market. They do not want to invest in technology rather make the employees work like dogs until they have to go on stress leave. Stay away from this division of AIG at least in Canada as it's a sinking ship.
Great pay and benefits
Incompetent middle management.
Worked on at least 3 renewal quotes per day and 3 new business quotes. No guidance from management. In a span of about 4 years; we had 4 different managers. Hardest part of the day was trying to make sure; we kept up with expectations of management. Most enjoyable part of the day was talking to brokers and making deals.

No christmas parties; no summer picnics
This was a great place to work, there was lots of fun experiences and room for advancement. I met and maintained many friends from this company. There was a good deal of work at times, and we tackled it as a team. I learned how to deal with diverse group of clients. Regrettably, the company was caught up in the financial crisis of 2008, and contracted. We lost a lot of our work due to this. That was very hard for the staff and myself. Nevertheless it was a memorable growth and learning experience.
Employee team work, advancement, dynamic workplace.
Company struggled in financial crisis, stocks went down.
Quoting 2-3 renewals per day/ quoting 1-2 new lines of business per day. I have learned how to manage high volumes of work on a daily basis I loved my co-workers and everyone got along with each other. The hardest part of my job was working with new management team every six month because people were leaving the company. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I owned my work; whatever I brought in was a reflection of my work ethic. I treated my job like my own business.
