    My first job was at Philamlife more than 20 years ago. I don't know if times have changed now, but they used to pay average salaries. Not too high, not too low.

    Back then, working at Philamlife meant job security. One could count on having a job until old age. The only reasons they would fire you was if you stole money or got convicted of a crime.

    a friend told me that hidi nga daw mataas pay pero maganda daw benefits...

    still waiting for other feedbacks/reply :)

    I wonder what those benefits are. Back when I was with them, the most important benefit was low-interest loans (for housing, autos, etc). They were so cheap that many officers couldn't afford to have them refinanced at market rates when they were considering moving to other firms. That kept many of them loyal (read: stuck) to their positions for quite a long time.

    Kuya Danny:

    yun yata (housing and car loans w/ low interest) yung benefits na sinasabi ng kaibigan ko...

    kung matatali ako ng matagal sa company eh parang hindi rin pala maganda... :(
  • Hi! Would anyone know how it is like to work for PhilamLife / PhilamCare / AIG Group as to training, advancement, satisfaction, benefits, compensation, and the like? Are you happy working for this company. No bashing please. Just be objective, frank, and diplomatic about your experiences.

    How is it like to work in the claims and underwriting section? Ok lang kung slave driver ala SGV basta training solid.

    ako kse I'm under Philam Asset- mutual fund division ng Philam. So far, ok naman dahil fully guided kme ng mga boss. Even Mr. Cuisia the Pres of Philam checks up on us evey few weeks or so.. tska stable ung company ok ang benefits dahil may healthcard and mga bonus. Pinili ko dito kahit maliit lang ang salary kse may growth ka sa company tska alam mong di ka mapapahiya dahil matatag na kse.
  • Hello.

    Zeratul, I just joined AIG-BPSI in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. The parent company here in the Phils. of AIG is Philam. My job btw is call center specialist. Frankly, I joined this company because I am tired of switching jobs already. I wanted to grow and really start developing a career. I can see that I can achieve that with AIG-BPSI. As for solid training, they do send people abroad for training so if you will be one of the lucky ones, you get to spend a month or two for trainings abroad however, do expect to work with the company for about 18-24 months if you get sent abroad as they will spend a lot for you.

    I can't really tell how it is in the claims and underwriting section but I think the company in general has a very promising future here in the Philippines.

    wala pa rin tatalo sa Philam when it comes to insurance and other pre-need services....
  • My dad works in Philamlife (he's in HR) and I work in AIU MRTC - the management and technology consulting firm for the non-life division of AIG. :D It's a family affair, I tell you. :lol:

    Anyway, if you guys have questions on compensation, benefits, etc, give me a PM and I can answer your questions. :)
  • Sa underwriting, ang average entry level (say underwiter I, for training) is mga 8++K, pero 16 months naman, plus may increase after regularization, and the benefits package is one of the best in the industry. Very competitive... plus, inhouse training, stability, good career growth (syempre, performance based =) )
  • i work for Philam Savings Bank AIG. Office ko ay sa Philam Bldg sa may Dela Rosa. Ok naman ang pay (pag single ka, fresh grad). Pati yung Philam Care Benefit. Tsaka ok ang culture (pasa sa standards ko ha). Sa baba, may Philam Plans and Life. Pansin ko lang, parang ang pangit ng culture nila dun. ewan ko ha. parang walang professionalism (in my own opinion). I just dont know with the Head Office.

    The most coveted position by college grads at Philamlife is their management/officer training program. This rotational program is a combination of classroom and on-the-job training where participants rotate around different departments for a period of 2 years. This provides an excellent opportunity for those seeking long-term careers in general management. When I was still in college, Philamlife would usually participate in university job fairs to recruit for this program.

    rabbaddal's information is new to me. When I was there the management training method of choice was BKSBM*. I guess times can change, after all.

    *BKSBM - bahala ka sa buhay mo.

    By the time my batch was jobhunting, Philamlife had been conducting its management training program for quite a while. I'm not sure how long this program has been running though.
  • The MAP has been going on for more than 7 years now, give or take a year or two. It's interesting hearing about some of the horror stories my dad tells me when he interviews some of them. :)
  • Hi!

    cno po may alam kung ano ang nature ng wrk ng position ng "Customer Service Asst - Backroom Support". sa philamlife sa may UN ave.

    tnx!:confused:
  • my bestfriend is the recruitment officer of philamlife, sister ko din is working there. Dami nilang social activities- may kidie party, family day etc. Daming benefits, I think 16th sila, may discount sa insurance, waived ang annual fee ng AIG cc, insurance (80% ata, i'm not sure), may car loan and you can study-its reimbursable granted you maintain a specific average.
  • 16 months nga sila...yung ang sabi nung HR Personnel nung interview ako....di binanggit specifically yung benefits....
  • KuyaDannyKuyaDanny Moderator PEx Moderator
    Huwag basta-basta maaakit sa "16 months". Kilatisin ang buong package. What is better, 16 months at P8,000 monthly or 13 months at P10,000 monthly? Sometimes these "extra months" are given out as a way of keeping your nominal monthly rate low. Retirement, separation, insurance, and other benefits are often based on the monthly rate, so your overall compensation is affected.
