    I worked at AIG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Given a lot of responsibility
    -A lot of respect from management
    -Easy recruiting process

    Cons

    -Main downside was that not every intern was able to get as great of an experience as me. Some people ended up shadowing full-time employees for the summer, which would not be very fullfilling

    Advice to Management

    Try to plan more events more interns. Not necessarily paying for events, but maybe give all interns in the office the day off to go to the beach, or check out the AIG suite at a sports game, etc.

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AIG is an amazing story of turnaround. Large company with many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Sloppy senior leadership and execution of clear plans for effective decisions to impact the top, middle and bottom line and stick to growth objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision. Make sure the senior leaders that are put in place have more to them than a past story. I've seen to many bright people who have a good past. The need to be able to adapt their past to grow the future. I've seen to much recreating of the wheel over the past few years. Bring back Hank Greenberg!

    I have been working at AIG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome pay for an intern, the all expenses paid NYC information session was great too.

    Cons

    Internship wasn't organized, the managers didn't know what to do with the interns and what to train them on. There were days I sat at my desk and read the news for 7 hours because there were no work or training available. The final project was very disorganized and was unable to be completed because the data didn't exist-- it also had nothing to do with underwriting.

    Advice to Management

    Create more structure to the internship program, offer more advice and guidance to interns.
