    Great place to learn - sadly the financial crisis may make other options more appealing.

    I worked at AIG

    Pros

    AIG is about the best company in the industry to learn and gain exposure to challenges beyond your expectations. The challenges will guarantee you success at any other company in the industry.

    Cons

    Regretfully, AIG has been hit hard by the financial crisis in the U.S. The P&C insurance companies have performed well over the years, but, the challenges that face the parent company and financial exposures may be difficult to overcome. This places a tremendous amount of pressure on all employees. The environment was demanding and challenging before the current financial issues and it has only escalated now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be completely honest with your employees. The business is based on the personal relationships of front lines mangers and they need to know exactly what is going on. The managers communicate directly with the clients and control the revenue of the P&C "crown jewels" of the organization. .

    I have been working at AIG

    Pros

    AIG is a great place to get experience and learn some survival skills. They keep you on rollerskates. It's a little bit "Do or Die".

    Cons

    too siloh-ed and there is much to be desired from Human Resources..from the Top Down! They also need better training programs, timely reviews, and better career planning programs within AIG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on HR. Work on keeping your Employees. It's expensive to continue to replace people and retrain.
