    Pros

    Learn things everyday; All colleagues have excellent background at Science Team. People are nice, and the pay is competitive.

    Cons

    As a software engineer, you couldn't find many people to discuss with about technical questions. Most of them are scientists and researchers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more engineers here.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to gain loads of experience. The pay is ok, and I appreciate the Performance Bonus.

    Cons

    Worked to death. The number or hours we are pushed to work are ridiculous. I am a mid-level employee that must work a minimum of 10+ hours OT M-F, then must work almost every weekend. And work every vacation at least 20% of my "Paid Time Off" .

    Performance Ranking: Although I rarely receive less than a "2" Ranking, I feel that the % of great employees forced into a "4" Ranking is not fair or representative of the actual level of work performed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the percentage of folks receiving a "4" Ranking to no more than 5 % of all staff. We have already let go most of the true 4's.

    Investing in analytics and growth.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong leadership, heavy current investment to improve systems, technology and training. Opportunities are plentiful due to the worldwide scope of operations. Market leaders in many business lines with emphasis on customer relationships, innovation and greater reliance on science and analytics.

    Cons

    Current technology is poor. Entrepreneurial spirit is dampened by new regulatory oversight requirements. Heavy workloads coupled with the infamous "RPR" rating system. Can be quite political at times due to seemingly constant business reorganizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer focus and communication on strategies.
