    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The office has great work-life balance and is very flexible. Great hours and very low stress.

    Cons

    There is limited upward mobility and positions have the potential to stagnate in growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for talent to grow and develop, working towards a vertical career move.

    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.)

    Current Employee - Tax in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Tax in New York, NY

    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

    Cases are interesting and challenging, which ensures a continuous learning environment and promotes job satisfaction. Despite the lack of pay increases over the past 3-5 years, they have instituted performance bonuses.

    Cons

    Compensation is at or below industry level, technology is far below industry standard, admin layoffs resulted in increased burden on technical staff, HR issues (unavailable, unhelpful), etc.
