    I worked at AIG full-time

    Pros

    Very supportive immediate teammates, helpful training process, great local salesdesk management.

    Cons

    Senior salesdesk management changes their interests on a weekly basis. This is constantly changing the narrative of the sales team. What you are speaking about can literally change Monday to Monday. The service departments inconsistency make your job more of a challenge than it should be. Not enough opportunity to work remotely.

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, such as higher than regular matching 401K, bonus, work from home capabilities, generous PTO

    Cons

    Job security, constant worry if you gonna have your job the next hour or next day

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate with employees more often and minimize job security concern so they can focus on their task and perform their best, rather than worrying constantly.

    Pros

    Decent salary, yearly bonus, ample PTO and holidays, 401 K match, decent health insurance

    Cons

    Great starting salary but was never told there are no cost of living raises

    Advice to Management

    Salary increases will give good employees more of an incentive to stick around longer.

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, vacation and benefits.

    Cons

    -There was little interest in promoting or hiring from within because the grass is greener on the outside.
    - Training and meetings budget was 0. If you wanted/needed new skills it was on the employee.
    - Annual reorganizations make it impossible to get anything done. In 5 years I went through 6 reorganizations.
    - budgets were set in September but not approved till the following April which gave us 6 months for a years work before the next budget cycle to prove you could use the allocated funds.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it till you reach the goal. Constantly changing or moving goals is counter productive.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and good atmosphere

    Cons

    Managers play favorites, the pay needs a lot of attention and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your managers about the underhandedness and the unfairness within the office. You lose a lot of great employees with these antics.
