    Pros

    CEO is new, no nonsense and saying the right things. Has made some smart hires (CIO). Will take time to trickle down throughout the organization. Technology is old but they are working to change that (can it come soon enough) Open culture, you can bring your ideas but difficult to implement. People are really smart and hardworking. Movement across different business lines so you are not siloed in your career.

    Cons

    A lot of legacy thinking and unwillingness to change. Heavy meeting culture and facetime in pockets of the organization.. A lot of governance and oversight that sometimes makes it difficult to make rapid change. Not much exposure to Senior Management.

    Advice to Management

    Management should spend time walking the floors and getting to know the talent and what the ideas are.

    Pros

    Some exceptional people make for great teams. Free food on Wednesdays.

    Cons

    Being one the 20% that keep the other 80% employed tend to make for a poor work-life balance. Overcrowded building in Fort Worth to the point of being ridiculous. Nearly impossible to track down someone to accomplish something unless you know that someone personally. Very much a "not my job" culture and very little concern on being customer centric.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Don't drop your Project Managers mid-execution then expect them to scramble to get everything done in weeks before they are expected to depart. They will find other jobs and leave the project to whomever comes next to figure out.
    New senior management has touted some great ideas and seems committed to a positive direction. Hope it works out.

    Pros

    I really couldn't tell you what is a pro about this company. There are a lot of good people there, they are just not recognized as valuable by the company.

    Cons

    This company has lost its mind. The CEO's philosophy that people work better when they aren't comfortable is completely off base. When people are in constant fear of losing their job, they no longer focus on the company, they focus on themselves. I remember when we had a CEO who went to bat for the company, and went down to Washington and stood in front of Congress and defended us. Now we have a CEO who receives multi-million dollar bonuses for the performance of the company stock that 99% of the company doesn't own (because they got rid of the employee share purchase program around the time of the stock collapse though upper management still receives stock bonuses). I'm glad I left when I did. I couldn't stand riding the elevator every day listening to gossip about an impending layoff. It seemed like it was every week. That is no way to run a company. I'll never forget that the week I left there was an employee town hall and an employee asked the CEO if we were going to review the process of ranking employees that puts 20% of the company in the lower 20% of performers regardless of how well they perform given that the company had we rebounded and other firms had done away with similar systems AND the CEO's response was to look in his jacket pocket, announce that he had reviewed it, and angrily state that he was sick and tired of people complaining about it. What an idiot. My recommendation is stay away from this company unless you're upper management material...otherwise you'll find yourself pretty unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time with the people below you and figure out what is actually go on. Tell the truth. You don't need $10 million bonus when you're already rich and you could probably preserve a few jobs by cutting that.

    Pros

    Decent health benefits and good PTO policy. Depending on which department one worked in the office culture could be pleasant.

    Cons

    Senior management is concerned with fillig the pockets of AIG shareholders. Company wide restructuring is the method used to achieve this goal via layoffs companywide. AIG's culture is not healthy and should be avoided.

    Advice to Management

    There is one thing AIG employees hate more than anything and that is the performance review process. This process needs to be overhauled. It is unfair!

    Pros

    Large, stable company with a pension plan good benefits paid time off, work from home options, good working hours, occasional potential for advancement.

    Cons

    Multiple levels of management, top heavy leadership environment, senior leadership needs to take the time to observe what's happening on the front lines of the business.

    Pros

    Co-workers where great, made a lot of friends which has nothing to do with the company so on to the company. The 401K plan is great, still have a retirement plan which was nice, decent health benefits, good PTO policies. A e-work environment allowing some to work from home.

    Cons

    Very poor management, found that management spent more time informing us what we needed to do than managing what was coming to us never thinking that if they managed what was coming to us they wouldn't have to inform us what we needed to do as if we didn't know what we needed to do anyway. There is also favoritism within the company which will effect your personal growth. The company is top heavy in all of it's management, there is no support for the workers, therefore not allowing the worker to succeed and working them long hours. There have been no raises in the last 3-4 years but STI, short term incentives, which were small bonuses if you met 100% of the goals on your performance review, no room for improvement. Most employee's thought raises would return after the government was paid back but this didn't happened just the opposite, lay off's began to increase the stock price.

    Advice to Management

    I think I said enough in Cons.
