Pay below par

Information Security Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at AIG

ProsThe people are generally really good folks trying to do a good job. Depending on the department, it can be rather a family-like atmosphere. However, some other parts of the company are extremely uptight and inflexible. There is potential for the person who can learn and play the political game well.

ConsTechnical skills are not well rewarded and any job outside of the NYC area is paid at less than equivalent jobs in the same market. Getting chewed out by my neighbors when the market imploded and having some of them resent me just for working there for 8 months was extremely trying.

Advice to Senior ManagementI had excellent reviews and only got a 2% raise...that is why I did not stay around. My compensation was below normal even in my local market for my skills. Just because I am not in NYC does not automatically devalue my skills and work. And yes, sometimes it is correct for the technical folks to make more than their management when the skills demand it. It should not be a requirement to grovel for professional training - yet it is frequently the case.
