    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Product knowledge, pension plan, collaboration opportunities...Bonuses for grade level 20 and up are nice.

    Cons

    Little to no pay increases and promotions for even top performing employees. Constant shake-ups and changes continue to occur...Not a good place to target for employment at this time...More changes likely to come as company continues to restructure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight harder to increase employees compensation. Especially when they are top performers...

    Pros

    The pay was decent, as were the facilities. Flexible when it comes to working from home. There's always the free coffee too.

    Cons

    Horrible culture. People are treated like office supplies. Not at all confident that upper management has any idea what they're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating people like... I don't know... PEOPLE!

    Pros

    SunAmerica/AIG SunAmerica/AIG Retirement Services is a great company; great people; great product/service and gave back to the community. The executive management were great.

    Cons

    The Financial Services Industry is hectic, fast paced, and at times, unforgiving. Mistakes can directly cost the company money, reputation damage, and quickly cost an employee their job.

    The tasks at hand were mechanical, thus repetitive.

    Pros

    If you're concerned about status, then titles are pretty neat. Plus, there is a high emphasis on networking, so there's a large allowance for dining.

    Cons

    Repetitive workflow and lack of interaction with other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need cross-department collaboration.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at AIG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked at the Los Angeles P&C location for 10+ years before finally quitting. Benefits were good. Flex time opportunities. I would have liked to stay had the management been fair.

    Cons

    Management is really weak and refuses to address problems. Some employees take total advantage of the lackadaisical management oversight. Management discriminates (does not support) against minorities way too often. This happened quite often in my last few years there. The work environment was really unfair and led to so many minority employees grumblings and departures. I finally had enough and quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone fairly and evenly. Don't discriminate. Many employees want to work and work hard but not if favoritism is rampant.
