    I worked at AIG as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work environment - nice office with big kitchen and very nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Working as a long-term contractor (over 16 months) does not lead to permanent employment because of a hiring freeze.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good contractors who have been trained and have years of job experience at AIG as full-time employees so you don't need to re-train others who may not work as hard or do as good a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I fell upper management should get more involved with the employees who work under the. I felt at times that upper management does not always know and understand what we the employees do to keep things a flow.

    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.
