    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.
