Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

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

Pros

Compensation is good, 401K match is good, lots of vacation time, relatively intelligent staff, Brand is gaining respect, Charismatic, driven and smart CEO

Cons

Everyone works hard - but leadership mandates 20% of people get a bad rating so the culture is super competitive. Rather than teamwork, people just stab you in the back all the time. They take credit for your good work and call your manager on any minor mistakes. It is a corrupt, cancerous place. Managers don't know how to manage. Add on continued restructuring and lay-offs - and a fantastic CEO who is irreplaceable and about to retire - and it is not a healthy climate nor does it have a good future. The Property Casualty dept which is huge component of AIG's business is not doing well. Steer clear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on driving revenue and business growth. Strive to build a teamwork-based culture and a meritocracy based on a more effective 360 degree review process and set expectations for managers. Set benchmarks for what success looks like in each role. Right now it is just a 'free for all' with no standards or guidelines for success so people are evaluated based on hazy wisps of nothingness.

    I worked at AIG as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management cares about staff. Exciting projects. Teams genuinely show teamwork here and there is no perceived back stabbing going on.

    Cons

    Very fast pace and high pressure with long hours. Perfection is the goal and if you are not that type of person, then. ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more Work life balance would be good.
