Pros

Challenging work, work independently, good benefits

Cons

IT is inferior to similar companies of same size and revenue. Majority of managerial staff share small offices. Sr staff are AIG old timers, who are close minded. Extremely political. Big Egos.

Advice to Management

Be open minded and let AIG go. Stop behaving like a bunch of high school girls bashing each other.

    Pros

    The company sticks to its core business, understands their products, and how their products fit their client's needs.

    Cons

    The lack of an adequate financial/accounting reporting system doesn's allow the company to make quick and accurate decisions about their products.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Basic salary is ok but overall remuneration (incl bonus, other perks etc) is 4th quartile, London offices are well located.

    Cons

    Exceptionally high turnover of staff in London, set up new lines of business only to close them down soon after, focus is entirely on enormous and unsustainable growth in the most competitive stage of the cycle.

    Advice to Management

    There's little you can do if everything is driven from the US
