    I have been working at AIG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    AIG offers great benefits, like health, vision, dental, 401K, company paid life insurance. The hours are not bad either, with the weekends off.

    Cons

    The pay needs be more for the work load. I say they need to bring back the yearly raises. Definitely need to higher more people to do the job.

    Good company, however the Senior Management should be more transparent with their subordinates

    I worked at AIG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is definitely work life balance in AIG. Their benefits are definitely good especially for those with family. They offer trainings that can help you develop your career for long term.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't care too much about their subordinates. Their performance evaluation process is flawed so even if you are one of the top performers, if your manager doesn't represent you well then expect to be placed in the bottom pile of the employees. Nepotism is definitely a part of the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the performance evaluation process. Senior managers should be more transparent with their subordinates.

    I worked at AIG as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay, networking opportunities, meeting other interns, not much overtime work,

    Cons

    Disorganized internship program, some managers did not know that interns were arriving and did not have specific projects planned out for them. I did endless data entry all day. Technology is very outdated.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good compensation, good opportunities, challenging work

    Cons

    3rd party applications
    old technology
    comprised of consultants who get paid more than employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring technical consultants. They end up being more costly to the company than having an in house dev team.
    Stop using 3rd party applications. None of them can interact with each other, and a lot of them are maintained poorly. Again, hire developers to create these solutions. It'll make the company more efficient.
    Lack of new technology will steer away young talent in the future. Get with the times.
