I worked at AIG full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The managers were nice and willing to work with agents with anything they might need. The break rooms were nice and moderately stocked. The pay is good and the hours aren't bad. Never had to work a weekend.

Cons

They were slowly letting go all of their temporary employees under the guise of "they weren't the right fit" even though all of the reviews about the agents were on par. As the numbers in the U.S. support desk dwindled the numbers in Malaysia (Kuala Lampur) grew. As the numbers overseas grew the comments from the english speaking employees that were being supported grew very negative. More time was wasted on trying to get through the language barrier than fixing the issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I get that hiring people overseas is infinitely cheaper, but that also makes the quality of support that your employees get go down the toilet.

    I worked at AIG full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn and advance - they pay for training such as actuarial exams, CFA, FRM and the like. Good work-life balance- although you are expected to work hard, you can actually get away at the end of the day.

    Cons

    The company went into federal receivership, which resulted in losing some of the international companies. FP lost billions of dollars, which resulted in major organizational changes and the diminishment of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on being an insurance company, not finance.

    I have been working at AIG full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity of pay increase and promotion are definitely there, if you are a good friend with upper management.

    Cons

    Keep cutting manpower without replacement, no paid increases for the past two years. Claim doing very well every quarter but not taken care of the employees. When feedback like no increase in pay is hard to keep up with living standard; answered from the company is "AIG paid you to do your job, not to pay you to keep up with the living standard". But this statement does not apply to every one in the company. The performance evaluation system forcing certain percent of employees at the lower rate; good workers/performers with bad rating to meet the "system requirement". Grading/Rating is not transparency at all. No voice will be heard unless you are in the "Management Club". HR is ridiculous helpless, too much politic, low morale, Everything is last minute fire drill. No plan, not organize, Not encourage self development in professional life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have few advice in mind; but then why wasting my time as they only want to listen to what they want to hear but nothing else.
