Pros

Telecommuting option a few days per week, good benefits, capable coworkers

Cons

There are too many layers of upper management and bureaucracy. There are not enough social activities to bring employees or departments together. The hiring process is a joke. A consultant still has to jump through hoops just go get hired fulltime and it takes the company years to convert them. The company need to reign back on offshoring IT work that requires more critical thinking skills just to save cost. It does not save cost when a project that's handled offshore ends up taking 2-3x as long to complete because the offshore folks struggle to understand business requirements and can't translate them into quality output.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the hiring process. Don't make a qualified consultant wait years before converting them. Hold more social functions and foster better relation across different departments. Upper management should strive for a more open door policy. Stop sending jobs offshore that require critical thinking/strategic/innovative skills. Not all jobs can be outsourced. This is not a cost cutting measure that will succeed in the long run.

    I worked at AIG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits. OK work-life balance. Flexible work hours. Overall decent company to work for for a while.

    Cons

    No training for new hires. A lot of outsourcing to Asia. To many managers...some brilliant, some know half of what you know. Telecomuting not for everybody. To much favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No more "good old boys clubs"

    There is still some dead-weight hanging on, but it appears that the company is certainly headed in the right direction.

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

    Pros

    Good visibility with management. Communication between teams/practice groups has greatly improved.

    Cons

    Miserably antiquated systems make everyday work difficult. Whatever is left of the anti-AIG sentiment born from the 2008 bailout. New offices are cramped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep improving and restoring the public image of the AIG brand and the rest will follow.
