    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonus Comp for managers is very good but without salary increases, valuable employees will continue to leave.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on shared service platforms that work with marginal efficiency. Then, those platforms are closed down and more people lose their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being lured by the baseless assumption that shared services can work as good as the groups they replace. Wake up to the fact that other companies in this sector give salary increases to their rank and file.

    Pros

    The employees are very professional and dedicated and are always looking to help you advance your skills.

    Cons

    Dealing with time zones when trying to schedule a large group of attendees for a mandatory conference call.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management is that they keep an open door policy for all. Communication is key for success for the individual and the department.

    I worked at AIG full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for; the workload is management; colleagues and management are mostly great.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive with similar companies/positions in the city and it is completely inflexible. Your experience will wholly depend on your manager but there is a good chance you'll have a great one as many of the senior people have stayed for the length of their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Create/develop/allow and credit more professional development opportunities for those who wish to be proactive about advancement.
