    Pros

    Good place to start with acquit training programs and ability to underwrite complex accounts. Random scattering of good people.

    Cons

    Current compensation system does not include annual raises, your salaries is fixed within your job grade/title with no opportunity for increases unless you have an offer from another company or you are promoted, if you are promoted the company will not give more than a 12% raise.

    A "man-behind-the-curtain" system of evaluation you against your peers to determine your bonus.

    Gross company attitude towards other markets and brokers. Many still have an outdated "we're AIG, take it or leave it" superiority complex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the compensation structure.

    Pros

    I would like the benefits and paid time off. Good philosophy for customer service. Flexible work schedules and work life balance is okay.

    It is an American company and they appear pulling jobs into the US or sending them to India. Some departments are over using contract workers.

    The focus should be more on the people working in the company and not on how profitable they are or can be. Happy empoyees are productive and loyal employees.

    I worked at AIG

    Pros

    The work environment was very friendly. The people there were always willing to help me when I needed help. The higher management team was very approachable and took me out for lunch a couple of times.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of negative things I can say about the firm but I wish people wore ties more often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have that many suggestions to management as a former intern. It was an excellent intern opportunity and thank you very much for providing me the chance!
