    I wonder why AIG would move jobs away from NY. We all know it is the center of the Universe. Perhaps they will move Ins 102 there so he won’t post his nonsense to us again.

        Ughhh why would anyone want to live in New York, especially NYC?! It’s arguably the most oppressive state in the nation.

          Destro, I think they exchanged one Socialist Dictator for another in NYC. Weiner, the peter tweeter would have been even worse. The people up there get what they deserve. Progressive Socialist governance has never worked in the history of the world. They can have it.

            Neither has a government run by teabaggers.

            It looks like Karl Rove and the GOP establishment have come to realize that, and they are putting forth candidates who are competitive in general elections….even if they are RINO’s like Jeb Bush!!

            You’ve never answered my question Agent? What are some of Dr Carson’s thoughts on foreign policy? For example, what does he view as the largest strategic threat to the well being of the US?

            Let us know agent!

            Another Weiner joke?

            Food for thought Agent. Wasn’t it a GOP Congressman who was cited for trying to solicit sexual favors from male congressional pages? Also, wasn’t a GOP senator trying to engage in homosexual sex in an airport bathroom?

            What are your thoughts on this?

            Family values? ROFLWMDHOLAA!!

        I hate to tell you Excite, but companies do business by the Internet now and it doesn’t matter what city they locate an office in. If Amarillo has the facilities and people to handle it, it wouldn’t be any different than in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio or some other Texas city.

    As I have had terrible experience with off shore “service center” with HP, Visa and others as a Agent/ Broker I will find it difficult to endorse AIG to my clients.

    Have we not already drained “jobs” from the U.S. already to the point of higher unemployment, lower wage jobs to U.S. workers,,,,,.

    Thank you for doing your part to make it worse!

    Working here I can tell you Bobby B. and Peter Pan Hancock have destroyed a once great company, but thats what you get when you bring in people that have never worked an underwriting desk or in the P&C marketplace at all.

    Funny how they dont mention getting rid of their corporate jets that fly petey around for ribbon cuttings and allow other “senior” management to fly around at moments notice to berate employees on expenses and cutting expenses at cost of everything but thier over blown salaries…

      They may have been great 25 years ago, but some very nasty people were hired and started their demise. They started with bid rigging with Marsh and continued right on with the sub prime mess which cost the taxpayers $182 Billion. While they were owned by the taxpayers, they were doing business with companies with Cuban connections and got caught at that too and recently had to pay fines. It is a culture of corruption and very much like our Federal Government on a smaller scale.

        Wrong Phoenix, try Senior Underwritre who has seen over 50% of the teams across the country leave as a result of the incompetent decisions made by these clowns along witheir biz school grads in Senior positions that spew biz school theories with no real world experience.

        40 hours a week would be a luxury, and drone for now, leaving soon as a result of the antics of these boobs.

        So perhaps phoenix you can get your head out of yoru rectum before posting such uninformed drivel…

            102, did I say this happened in the past few weeks? AIG has been going down for some time and the fact is that the talent pool has been exiting the building. Who cares if it happened two weeks ago or a year? Get back on the subway and keep on going.

    Having been responsible for an international operation which crossed over several countries I can say that it is tough to provide service from a distant service center and get high CS marks. Not just from a distance standpoint (that is not the issue) It is language, culture issues, authority vs. referral issues etc. Real problem challenges.
    Texas, I understand. Lower wage and benefit cost, no state income tax which helps offset lower wage cost for employees, A business friendly state, English and culture are not problems. Best IT companies and support are close by.
    If it were me I would keep it in the good ol USA.

      Sergeant, glad to see you back on the forum again. I thought maybe you went to the VA for treatment and didn’t come back out. It is interesting what the trolls say about Texas, isn’t it? Gee, I wonder if State Farm made a big mistake expanding their operation to DFW. Also, apparently Toyota USA made a big mistake by moving from Torrance, Ca to DFW. How can us country hicks possibly serve the needs of technology? Why is Texas attracting business? I am still scratching my head. Hope you are doing well up there. By the way, Prince Fielder is gone for the year and he wasn’t hitting his weight when he got hurt. Maybe Detroit knew something when they traded. I understand Kinsler is doing well with the Tigers.

    If the area your working in is high cost, you have a limited future. NY is getting kicked in the butt everyday because of the high cost of doing business. Look at Bermuda. The place is in economic turmoil. It’s depressing. People have left the Island in droves because companies have found efficiency by moving to Ireland. Bermuda politicians have been talking about finding new incentives for new business and new people. Well, it’s a bit too late for that with their $400. lunches. But, companies have to be careful. Efficiency is great but it puts more people out of work and the benefits of efficiency is translated into higher executive compensation. The spread of the have’s and have not’s is growing at an alarming rate. Companies need to realign their priorities to First are your employees, second is your customer base and third, your stockholder. Putting stockholder first above customers and employees get you one thing. Impossible call centers in Pakistan. Give the American college kid a break and keep jobs here in America.

      Hey Rocket, I am not sure who the worst posters are on this site. It is pretty much a tie between Ins 102 and Boogereater. Neither can put together a complete sentence and make any comment on an insurance article that makes sense. That is why we call them trolls.

          The only thing I know is that it’s not necessary to delve into someone’s sexuality, race, or religion in order to make a point. Resorting to personal attacks only diminishes an argument.

          102, I have been to NY and my first impression getting off the plane was how bad it smelled. Perhaps I was getting a whiff of your body odor. I would never ask someone like you to show me around. I would be afraid you would try to fondle me since you seem to have a fixation on men. By the way, I have been married to a woman for over 40 years. I will leave the man thing to the likes of you. Now, you can go back and troll in the subways or Grenage Village for your next partner.

            Agent,
            I truly feel sorry for you. While everyone is known to make spelling and grammatical errors from time to time (I know I do and admit it), you sometimes embarass yourself too much on this site.
            As someone who has lived in New York City for over fifteen years, there is no “Grenage” Village. However, there is a “Greenwich” Village. I truly feel sorry for the tour guide and/or company that gave you such poor information. If you come to NYC again, I can refer to you to tour operators that will give you tours with accurate names of people and places. I really think you should ask for a refund.
            Moreover, your educational shortcomings are becoming glaring to so many people on this site as well as other places where you blog. However, they probably aren’t noticed on teabagger.com. I think you need to ask your alma mater for your tuition back, and you can invest some of that money back into the complete Hooked on Phonics collection. It would really help you Agent.
            Again, as a rude New York Democrat I can thank mindless tea bagging Texas Republicans like you. With voters like you voting for Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, we could run a chimpanzee as our nominee and still keep the White House.
            Have a great afternoon Agent. I am no longer posting on this article. Stay out of the sun please! The Texas sun is frying your brain, and it having deleterious effects on your train of thought.
            Cheers!

    Please take the crude and childish banter off line. It doesn’t contribute positively, nor does it reflect well on any of you. Why does internet anonymity bring out such unnecessary ugliness? Sheesh. Perhaps IJ should require actual identities for posting. That would end this nonsense pretty quick.
