    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The one reason I decided to work at AIG were the endless opportunities. I keep my eyes open and ears perked for projects that I could get involved in or I come up with new ideas that create buzz. I work on a great team that values diversity and agility in opinion and creativity. Each day is an adventure .... in a good way. I would recommend AIG as an employer to consider.

    Cons

    As in any large corporation, 'process' always gets in the way. Process has slowed my role down more often than not. Patience and collaboration is necessary for this to work well.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The experience is great, the benefits (401k, healthcare, vacation, etc.) are generous, and the work environment is friendly and inviting. The opportunity to begin working from home several days a week (up to 3) after a year in the position is also a plus. Work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    The salary leaves a bit to be desired, and promotions/raises are not regular.

    Advice to Management

    Regular raises would be nice, even if maintaining the structure for promotions stays the same.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Global scope of projects and numerous lines of business provide great variety and experience. Many areas are very generous with flex to WFH.

    Cons

    Business is in a great deal of transformation as is leadership and structure. Even newly created roles and hires could be at risk as the evolution changes direction. Results are not at plan.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your associates aware of what's happening as well as the WHY. Get to know your internal talent and their capability before eliminating people who can do other roles and already know the business and culture.
