    Solid company to work for, at least from an IT perspective. Most employees were nice.

    Former Employee - QA Software Eng in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at AIG full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Steady job, solid company, good benefits. There were a few idiot co-workers and a director, but I managed to outlast them all.
    If I found myself age 60 and without a job, i'd sweep floors there just to get fully vested in the pension.

    Cons

    Got laid off, company went bankrupt...one of the main reasons I liked working there was that it was not a tech focused company and it was very solid. But all that came apart....there are some SR managers that should have done jail time, but they're too busy taking golden parachutes and making millions more at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The AIG Auto division never really made any money...no real advice for management.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good and "work from home" policies suit many employees.

    Cons

    High level change and reorganization to maximize shareholder value are constant. Job instability and demotivated employees permeate the organization.
