    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.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at AIG full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    good career opportunities if you can navigate the autocratic office politics, many 9 to 5evers make it easy to progress, large scope for on the job training

    Cons

    reluctance to increase annual salary year on year or match the industry average, a tendency to run the business on skeleton crews means long hours for relatively low pay, management focus on the bottom line instead of investment in growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest more in employee salaries, wellbeing, and systems and watch your business flourish instead of seeing a revolving door of employees
