Pros

There are many opportunities to experience many different situations and environments. You can really get a lot of variety of experience on the job if you look for it. Since there is so many products and businesses here, you often have the opportunity to work with people normally not in your field of interest. There is alot of good supporting departments such as research and other helpful internal departments to obain expert advise.

Cons

It is often a stressful environment. You usually face sink or swim situations. There is not a lot of mentoring. It is sometimes too big to make real relationships.

    Pros

    Diverse Opportunities AIG is a group of companies and these companies are diverse not only in their organization structure but also in the markets and domains that they operate in - this means AIG is a company of diverse opportunities - this is their greatest strength. Compensates Educational Cost AIG is willing to compensate all the costs related to the education which is job relevant. Work Life Balance A financial services firm on wall street being sensitive to work life balance is almost unheard of but a job at AIG means a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Rigid and lethargic organizational structure means your ability to bring change would be seriously hampered by forces that don't intentionally mean to do so Matrix organization means lack of accountability though it comes with a great opportunity to grow your networking and relationship skills.

    Advice to Management

    Develop Middle level leadership - there is serious leadership crisis in the organization

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity for advancement in AIG; however, it takes a "driven" personality to succeed. At AIG, employees are allowed to freely move between divisions. It is a tough environment to succeed, but, if you can succeed at AIG, you can do well anywhere.

    Cons

    With the current situation, senior management has not given any insight into what the company is planning. As employees, we get our news from the media first, and then, we are offered a reactionary webcast, where no real information is conveyed. The new leadership of AIG has made it clear that they are not going to make any effort to retain talented employees or improve morale.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be more open with employees. They should make an effort to improve morale and retain key employees.
