Current Employee - Business Analyst in Parsippany, NJ

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

Pros

Much that's already been said: decent pay, decent PTO, superior benefits (i.e. pension, 401k), and a true sense of camaraderie among (some of) the groups. As a Fortune 500 company, it's also a great resume booster too.

Cons

- Frequent misallocation of tasks to employees results in a persistent feeling of 'burn-out'

- Outdated hardware/software impedes work flow (and is occasionally embarrassing when consultants/executives visit)

- Project initiatives are rushed, so everyone ends up, 'covering the same real estate twice [or more]'

- Training sequence for new hires is inconsistent, outdated, and riddled with errors; management has not taken the time to define the sequence in advance

- Capable managers are sorely lacking; the more senior staff has to assume responsibility for carrying out poorly defined directives/requests

- Poor utilization of vendor product capabilities result in much wasted time, especially regarding data queries/collection

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Overloading your employees with tasks without providing more calendar will only diminish quality; either hire additional workers or add more calendar for task completion

- Upgrade the hardware and software platforms to sufficient levels

- PLAN your project initiatives before executing them, so you're not wasting time down the road with error fixes

- Improve all aspects of the training sequence, including the presentations, scheduling of instructors, and workshops to increase familiarity with knowledge/application of concepts

- Quit playing politics, and fire the managers who act like they've never even heard of the word

- Properly train your employees in all aspects of the vendor product, so as to save time on tasks

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good pay, occasional intelligent coworker

    Cons

    everything else; culture of meanness, division, silos; too many managers, not enough workers; lack of innovation or opportunity; very low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 75% of yourselves; rebrand shouldn't be just about a new logo (putting lipstick on a pig) but fundamental values change -- favoring compassion over meanness
