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

    Pros

    - international scope and exposure - some of the foreign country offices can be nice places to work; avoid NYC office.

    Cons

    - culture is to avoid touching problems, and be sure you can blame someone else - very low ethics, low morals, high rate of deceptive people work here, very dysfunctional. - is not pay for performance; is pay for what you can make others think you did - not professional; is a culture of yelling and intimidation (from the top down) and those people are promoted. - if you are not in sales, you have no value to the company and will not be rewarded. Non-sales functions (finance, IT, etc) are viewed as being of no value and are paid accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    - CEO came on board to stabilize AIG so as to stabilize the insurance industry so as to save the value of his own shares in MetLife, his prior co. Once it was stabilized, he began coasting.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not many. They are trying to turn the company around and have succeeded financially but they just can't renew the company the way they really need to. If they don't make it, they will be back in the bucket again in 20 years - would be sooner but too much money in insurance.

    Cons

    Don't accept a job here unless your manager has less than 3 years of service. Everyone with longer service are the reason the company got in the mess in the first place and they really don't have good managerial skills and don't care to change. They also want you to work 60 hour weeks with no hope of it ending.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to let go of the old culture and accept the fact that was part of the reason you needed a bail out. Cleanse any managers that have more than 5 years of service. I have yet to meet one that isn't crazy.
