    I have been working at AIG full-time

    Pros

    AIG provides excellent benefits and fair pay within a global organization. If you are mobile, it is an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    They sell work-life balance, but in reality it is not highly valued in the organization. While the pay is fair, they do not offer raises. The only time you receive a raise is if you are promoted.

    I have been working at AIG

    Pros

    flexible hours
    travel opportunities
    great networking opportunities

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication
    hard to move up
    not much training provided upon starting
    not a collaborative environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the goals, strategic direction, and vision from the top so that everyone knows what they are. Align & collaborate with the internal training teams in order to ensure knowledge retention and reduce turnover. Increased communication, truly ensure that everyone is open to sharing ideas, best practices, and knowledge in a comfortable environment. Poor communication is really a killer at this company.

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

    Pros

    Solid company, rarely worked overtime. the people were mostly nice, fun and cool. Large range of ages, good location with plenty to eat around.

    Cons

    No culture, large bureaucratic organization, you are a nobody there. Wasn't challenged enough, and felt unmotivated a lot of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you want to do and do it. Too much overhaul.
