Pros

Solid benefits. Rich history. For people starting their career here, its a good place to learn your craft. You will have opportunities to learn and gather knowledge. Work hours are not extreme.

Cons

The company is undergoing a lot of changes since 2008 financial crisis. Like other large companies, cutbacks and internal depts striving to survive in the new "AIG" by asserting their own will against each other are commonplace now. Monetary increases/bonuses and job stability is unsatisfactory these days as AIG is pulling itself back on its feet.

Advice to Management

Redo employee review compensation policies. Roundtable reviews where employees are compared to other employees of similar functions aren't beneficial especially when other managers not in your dept have a say in your review.. Employee ratings and job grading are too broad when determining increases and bonuses. Go back to the old system where your primary manager and his boss controls your review.

    Pros

    Long-term view (willing to invest in markets that may not be profitable for decades). Local expertise (NOT a US company doing business overseas, but truly global). Improving balance sheet and (once again) a good long-term outlook.

    Cons

    Not an insurance business inside of an insurance company. Short-term prospects are still unknown. Given 2008 near bankruptcy, tentative management view is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course -- this is the key client acquisition strategy to snare people earlier in their financial life.
