    Cons

    You get to understand about insurance, What makes the company grow, What it takes to bring the compayn to where it is today

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I fell upper management should get more involved with the employees who work under the. I felt at times that upper management does not always know and understand what we the employees do to keep things a flow.

    Pros

    benefits are good
    work from home option

    Cons

    Values of the company has gone done dramatically over the past several years, as it pertains to staff knowledge and experience, as employees who are very innovated are being let go and newly hired senior management are not on the same page, so the company is stagnated and floundering.
    Training - needs improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal career paths are very hard to come by. It is out with the experienced staff and in with the new non-experienced staff, who feel they can find a better, faster, and more cost effective way to get work done better, only to find out, it already is.

    Lack of effective leadership and constant change

    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA

    I have been working at AIG full-time

    Pros

    work from home option is a plus

    Cons

    outsourcing partners selected to reduce staff however they can not complete tasks properly causing additional work, which management ignores. In the past 2 years there has been constant changes with no final vision or plan revealed to the staff, causing many employees to leave due to uncertainity with the future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate & be honest. Pay your employees fairly

    Current Employee - Program Manager in Boston, MA

    I have been working at AIG

    Pros

    Energetic atmosphere, opportunities and career advancement are self-driven. These are great assets of the company if you are a self motivated, professional, driven and competent individual. There is a great level of professional development available by senior level professionals, for any employee willing to raise his/her hand and ask. The internal training opportunities are tremendous. Access to exceptional information is readily available.

    Cons

    Tough environment, competitive but rewarding. AIG will take what you are willing to give it. Long hours are expected and needed to accomplish the corporate goal. Young professionals early in their career should take notice to speak up, advocate for their ideas, these are championed by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay special attention to your 'coaching' ability in order to retain and attract young talent. We need to train and retain.
