      Limited Growth Opportunities

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A pro is the AIG name, the name opens many doors with brokers and is a strong item to have on a resume. There are also lots of very intelligent individuals to learn from. It is an environment of highly driven individuals who want to succeed. A big pro is the time off offered is definitely appreciated.

      Cons

      Little room for career advancement. The company is all too happy to give you additional responsibilities however do not expect this to come with any promotion or raise. It is not uncommon to hear the phrase "the only way to get a promotion is to leave". external hires are routinely offered more money than internal hires to the same position because of unreasonably strict internal rules on promotions and salary changes.

      Pros

      Standard benefits. Supportive coworkers and direct/middle managers.

      Cons

      Slow and broken technology. Everything broken needs tech tickets. Expect staff turn around after bonus season and have your work plate filled with their left over work.
