    I have been working at AIG

    Pros

    People are great, people are bad. Just like any large company. New leadership making changes to improve mindsets and technology.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible for the folks who care. It is excellent for the folks who do not.

    Advice to Management

    We need to get better people so that the people who care don't work themselves to death.

    Very generous with vacation time, very flexible when it comes to changing work schedule around life events

    Management is horrible at communication, blatantly lies to employees and asks employees to lie to each other

    Open and honest communication, stop playing favorites and expecting your employees to lie to each other about it

    Pros

    Large firm, good hours, lots of vacation and great benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Wrong sti incentives create too many of the wrong kind of projects. Change management and HR are an enormous weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Change STI. Manage expenses and strategic change more effectively. Stop hiring upper level management without insurance experience. This is a different industry than banking.
