    I worked at AIG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great medical, dental, glasses and the cost was very affordable - it was just me on coverage but family rates were very fair also. My department manager was awesome, she knew her stuff and when she didn't she would let us know and would find a solution for us!

    Cons

    They were really a stickler for clocking in and out. You couldn't clock in before 8:00 and you had to clock out at 5:00 . Your minutes were very closely monitored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your worthy department managers credit!!

    I worked at AIG as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers, salary comparable to others. Flexible hours: as long as your work is done and your billing is on par, you can go home early, or work from home. Good part is you get to bring a laptop home to finish your work if you have to leave early.

    Cons

    What used to be a pleasant place to work has turned into a who said what atmosphere. Management is constantly walking around the office to see who is chatting with whom. They will walk around the office 10 times in an hour rather than say anything to the employees. Absolutely no managerial support and you will get thrown under the bus so their jobs can be safe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and give your employees support. You may be the chief but you need Indians to lead a tribe.

    I worked at AIG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work life balance is good and the fact that they give you a base salary while you are learning/training. Another plus is that you get your benefits on day one of your job.

    Cons

    Overall postive....if i had dto put one minus it would have to be the opportunity for upward mobility.

    I worked at AIG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It used to be If you work hard, create opportunities for your self, and can navigate big company politics you will be promoted and rewarded. They didn't pay the best but people loved to work there. This didn't even change during the crisis.

    Cons

    The working environment slowly became intolerable the last few years. They now pay better than ever and everyone is unhappy. Constant lay offs and reorgs. No job is safe there anymore. Demeaning review practices. Need to be cut throat to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending so much on consultants who don't understand the business
