Some super talented people to work with, but a lot of disorganization plus extreme bureaucracy and terrible HR policies

I worked at AIG as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Talented people to work with and overall positive work environment (i.e., flexible hours when needed, work at home when needed but not ever day, family flexibility, etc.). There are SOME great businesses with challenging positions if you are in a business that is growing and profitable.

Cons

Extreme corporate bureaucracy -- every decision requires layers upon layers of approvals. You often get approval to take action then 3 months later are told to stop because someone 5 layers above has a new strategy or new rules. HR policies are ridiculous and HR staff are either overloaded or incompetent to say the least -- found it downright impossible to hire people to work for you, even for approved positions that are in the budget.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give executive managers more power to make decisions and eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy. Replace the entire HR organization with one that supports employee growth and develops talent versus the current staff that just enforces rules and provides zero valuable support.
