A great place to work and grow professionally. The most enjoyable part of the position was working with great co-workers and working business to business. Management always encouraged career growth. The company really cared about their employees.
great location and people
division was sold in 2009
Assessed and evaluated moderate to complex risks for the accident and health, group travel and special risk plans. Determined risk acceptability, pricing, coverage, terms and conditions by evaluating information and exposure on risk. Increased sales by applying effective pricing and underwriting in accordance with the Company guideline and personal authority.
My experience with the company has been a challenge for advancement. Little to no diversity. Very little room for growth change or advancement. I was not told that we were able to obtain pay increases for receiving the government bailout. You are penalizes for presenting ideas or if you questions ratings for end of the year reviews. When ask how can we help the company save money I suggested using technology vs travel. work from home. Ideas were shot down.The plus is the company offer a pension but of course not guarantee.
Typical day at work involves speaking to insurance brokers regarding insurance policies; generally renewal increase discrepancies, coverage accuracy, inspection changes, coverage questions. I underwrite renewal policies and endorsements to existing insurance policies. Interact and work with the underwriter daily to ensure proper policy pricing or to seek approval to release renewals & endorsements.
Flexible, benefits, co-workers
Not much room for advancement, job security
Alot of hands on learning and production. I have a great repoire with my coworkers and management. My typical day consists of renewals and new business. Breaking down account and prepping them for the underwriters to review to have quoted or declined. The most difficult part is gathering enough information on time from the broker in order to have the accounts prepped. The underwriters have also taken me on client meeting/luncheons to meet with our clients to put my name to a face and vice versa. It has been a pleasure meeting the people I interact in person than just through emails and phone calls. I've learned a lot about insurance and how accounts are analyzed. the experience has been great.
AIG was a great company to work for. I learned alot in the workers comp. department and gained great experience working as a underwriter assistance. Unfortunately due to cut backs, i was layoff along with 170 other employees...
management made it fun to work for the company
lunch break was only 30 minutes.
As a long term Commercial Property Underwriter for Chartis (Prev. AIG) I worked on numerous large accounts, dealing predominantly with renewals, liaising between clients, brokers, property management teams & surveyors.I built rapports up with many big names throughout the companies I underwrote & have always strived to stand out among my peers.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Very political environment. Management was difficult to work with at times.
difficult to move up with in the company.
. A typical day used to start with the checking of the mail, routing it and ensuring that the required action istaken. In AIG I've learned about Accident & Health Insurance, Travel Insurance and the famous amongst the corporate client the product Voluntary Group Accident (VGA). Management in AIG was generally good until a new Manager came in our department from a totally different field. He made decisions that were not truly very productive. My co wrokers in AIG were the most helpful. Almost all of them were highly qualified and had the most professional ethics deeply inculcated into their activities. Yes I miss them a lot.. The hardest part of thejob was to counter the Manager who in order to secure himself was ready to sacrifice others (my) career. Othrwise all things were just wonderful.. AIG gives the employees to be on the forefront and that gives the sense of partcipation, the sense of being important. That was most enjoyable.
the colleagues, workenvironment, the get togethers
mangement at times was simply dosile
