Organization of Personnel Requires Serious Improvement

Business Analyst (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

ProsMuch 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- Outdated hardware/software impedes work flow (and is occasionally embarrassing when consultants/executives visit)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- Training sequence for new hires is inconsistent, outdated, and riddled with errors; management has not taken the time to define the sequence in advance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 Senior Management- 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    AIG is rotten from the core -- avoid working here if you can!

    Actuary (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at AIG full-time for more than a year


    Pros: International opportunities, good pay (to offset the terrible culture) Cons: Upward management is only considered, not how well you treat your employees -- people are treated like dirt, overworked,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
