I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Overall good working environment with inside and outside IT. Generally helpful attitude to get the job done, even when priorities are not lined up between the two groups. In process of revitalizing their technology stack, so you can be exposed to newer technologies and build systems from the ground up.

Cons

For last few years, in a constant state of change. Lots of pressure for increased profits and decreased costs. Changes in work and personnel mean increased workloads.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep driving for results, but minimize large shifts in priorities as there have been so many over the years.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you get into the right work unit with leadership that is CONNECTED at the top (either through relations or relationships) then you can have a career for 25 years.

    Cons

    If you get into the wrong work unit where your leadership is not CONNECTED you will probably have 15 bosses in a 5 year period. This is my experience. Very unorganized and chaotic. Archaic systems that don't speak to each other. You also will probably have bosses and bosses of bosses that know half of what you know but be put in these positions due to 'knowing someone'. Very hard to get ahead unless you know someone and you are willing to work 24/7 365 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BLOW IT UP!
