    Compensation was ok. 7 hour work day. Lots of holidays.

    The culture is antiquated and fear based. Nothing is ever put in writing. Sr managers are arrogant and hostile. Unprofessional behavior is tolerated and sometimes encouraged. It is simply an intolerable environment.

    I have been working at Starr Companies

    Pros

    Challenging work, work independently, good benefits

    Cons

    IT is inferior to similar companies of same size and revenue. Majority of managerial staff share small offices. Sr staff are AIG old timers, who are close minded. Extremely political. Big Egos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open minded and let AIG go. Stop behaving like a bunch of high school girls bashing each other.
