    Pros

    The culture without a doubt is what makes the company. Team oriented, family and community focused.

    Cons

    Home office in Los Angeles so lots of Lakers and Dodgers fans. I'm a Knicks Yankees guy.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of the company's mantra... Caring, Driven, Ethical. It's what makes AAG an amazing place to work.

    Pros

    I loved my team and my manager. They were like family. Leads are provided, which is great.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth in ATL office. The reverse mortgage industry is volatile and a lot of changes take place without first informing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great environment and relationships but be candid with employees and provide more emotional support.

    I worked at American Advisors Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salaries offered are very competitive

    Cons

    Lack of support and consistency from senior management, constant turnover, poor work culture, low morale

    Advice to Management

    Many talented people work at AAG - recognize their talents!

    The recruitment team is wonderful. Unfortunately the culture introduced during the interview process does not carry over. A lack of morale and cohesiveness was apparent within the first 3 months. Senior management in various divisions are not on the same page, resulting in inefficiencies, lack of moral and disagreement between stakeholders.

    During my time at AAG, numerous employees left within 1 or 2 years of employment. The turn over is high at all levels, ultimately continuing the cycle of inefficiency. Additionally, unprofessional behavior is not addressed. Some of the team hired to address negative employee relations (Human Resources) partake in the very behavior they were hired to mitigate. All of the above does not make for a pleasant work environment.

    While I feel the CEO’s intentions to help the community are commendable, the skeletal framework holding the company together makes AAG a challenging place to work.

    Go start a collection agency. Your management style and company culture would be well matched for that field.
