I enjoyed working at AIG as i could balance my work and personal life. A healthy lifestyle was encouraged and the company allowed us time to have bootcamp classes after work at work premises, three times a week,which i thought was one of the cool perks that came with the fun part.

I also learned a lot and will always be grateful for the amount of experience the company afforded me.

We were always worried about retrenchment, year in year out, a lot of manual work, ancient systems that makes it hard to produce quality work. Great international exposure

It's all about numbers and dead lines at AIG and reporting timeously to Managers regarding the progress for the day and plan of action to tackle each day as it comes with various challenges from Brokers and what is required of Business Development Managers and also the turn around times from SASRIA to Underwriting.

From Marine, Underwriting, SASRIA and Property I have learned at any given time it's all about customer satisfaction and turn around times. Great opportunities arises often and internal employees are able to get enough chance to move around and enhance their growth. Managers travel across the globe for meetings and or work shops to better the company operational issues as AIG is a global company.


There was no hardest part of the job, it just needed some one who embraces change at all times as the way of working changed often and had to adapt asap to new changes.


And the most enjoyable part of the job was to be given a chance in acquiring Underwriting Experience combined with Client Services / Broker Support and SASRIA Administration.


However, as I was on contract through a recruitment agency but placed at AIG on contract basis, I came to realise getting a permanent job internally is very difficult after attending 3 interview internally but without luck but yet one of the most or best performing individual within our Broker Support Department.
Pros
N/a
Cons

I enjoy working because i love what i do and i love speaking to clients enjoy helping them and listen to there stories.
i learn is very important to listen to people and speak less and have empathy and tolerance. Management is great but mainly my team leader is fantastic,understanding, loving and caring for his team, he make you fill like you are part of a family and supportive. My co-workers are very great we support each other in good time and bad times, i can say these are my family are have in South Africa. The hardest part of the job is selling something intangible and selling to someone you cannot see. The most enjoyable part of the job is reaching target and been rewarded for my hard work.
Pros
Free Lunch, Free Vouchers, Free Holiday with family etc
Cons
Medical Aid
