I have been working at AIG full-time (more than a 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 have been working at AIG full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Time off plan is good but there's so much work you really can't use it. Working from home has been good but it's how AIG traps their employees.

    Cons

    No one has had a raise since 2008. Scaled back on pension plan. No promotional opportunities. The attitude is if you don't like then leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize everyone will be leaving at the earliest opportunity. When the market turns everyone will remember how they were treated. To say "be happy you have a job" is not enough.
