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
My experience at this company was after spending 10 hours per day of hard work,I would have to experience disrespect from the Director who criticized everything I did every single day.The first 8 weeks were horrible! I watched people get let go without warning after they have been doing phenomenally well in their job performance.No reason given.
As an account engineer doing account reviews, the replacement work software (GRASP) often required four to five times as long to accomplish account reviews. Little consideration was given by management for the increased burden in establishing work loads and due dates created by this software.
Grasp. Grasp. Grasp.
Company has a strong reputation and a great place to learn the insurance business. It has been somewhat unstable in recent years and has had a lot of employee turnover.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

the old AIG was a great place. the CEO got screwed by politicians and a couple of people in Westport Ct. that were getting involved in things they had no idea about. Greenwich (AIG Trading) was great and went on to great things, AIGFP took the whole place down
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.
Unfortunately there were massive layoffs. Reviews were no longer done on an individual basis. Each title was reviewed across the National instead of the department. Only a certain number of positions could be graded, so you were rated against others versus what you did for the department.
Salary competitive; worked 7 hours
Reviews were no longer for the work you provided; it was ranked on a National basis, and only a few could be in a specific catergory.
High paced environment included live trading with many companies and independent traders making trades in the commodities market. Great place to work, however due to electronic trading, the physical pits have since been closed.
free lunches, lots of after parties
Cut throat environment
