    Former Employee - Director in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Good Work/Life Balance: Good Time Off

    Cons

    Lots of quiet large lay offs; constantly changing executive management plans; executives constantly providing promotional opportunities for themselves; lack of promotional opportunities or opportunities to move around the company laterally; lots of dead end departmental positions; executive management has no interest in knowing the real talent within all levels of the company and making sure they are in the right position rather than just performing lay offs; good salaries going in but lack of performance based increases (lots of "you performed exceptionally well this year but no one, but the executives, are getting raises this year".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note the cons and don't be afraid of getting to know all levels of your staff especially your longtime employees (most of whom you have already laid off) because you are sending a lot of really talented people to your competition.

    I worked at AIG

    Pros

    The work environment was very friendly. The people there were always willing to help me when I needed help. The higher management team was very approachable and took me out for lunch a couple of times.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of negative things I can say about the firm but I wish people wore ties more often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have that many suggestions to management as a former intern. It was an excellent intern opportunity and thank you very much for providing me the chance!

    Former Intern - Summer Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Intern - Summer Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at AIG as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    senior leadership seminars. there are 6 or 7 seminars presented by the C level executives in various departments of the company, specifically to all summer interns. very good way to help us understand all aspects of business. work hours are typically 9-5, with low stress. Great pay for interns. $35/h.

    Cons

    lack of company culture. people here just come to work and then go home. very few social events to engage employees. Office is always quiet and uptight. few opportunities to get to know ppl who are not on your team, which is typically the size of 5 or 6.

    Pros

    Most successful corporate turnaround in history of business, and the opportunity to truly shape the future if aig and insurance

    Cons

    Too much to do. But, come on NYers, who isn't up for that challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers to manage and lead their people. Make that a core competency.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with some great people at AIG. There are always challenges and something new to do and learn. The work has been interesting.

    Cons

    Management in the tax department is poor. Way too political. Too many people just trying not to make a mistake and afraid they will be fired. Over the years there have been too many consultants running the show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management in the tax department. They have wasted millions and millions of dollars in transformation and have nothing to show for it.

    Pros

    Growing business, strong senior executive vision

    Cons

    Too much reliance on historical business and technology practices
    Slow to change
    Limited growth opportunites for internal candidates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some fresh perspective on how to get things done. There are LOTS of qualifed internal candidates but the selection process does not seem to be focused on qualifications. There is a need to be much more nible in getting things done.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment compared to other call centers.
    Good pay.
    Friendly management.
    Able to make yourself at home.

    Cons

    Call center therefore, very scripted and mentally exhausting.
    Management was more focused on the business side and had little knowledge of the CSR's daily job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more of what the CSR's actually do (e.g.: the systems, the solutions to client's questions, etc.)
