    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, a good amount of PTO, and the pay is great for the area.

    Cons

    You will absolutely work mandatory overtime when it is necessary. If you're looking for something that has set hours, this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone can always benefit from open communication.

    Pros

    Midwest region is top notch. Tries to balance needs of customer with long-term profitability. Benefits are generally good. Many people are talented and highly professional.

    Cons

    Home office is fractured and politicized. Middle management is often trying to figure out which way the wind is blowing and does not always align with overall messaging, but execution is always difficult in this area for most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the regions more and the product line managers less.

    I worked at AIG full-time

    Pros

    Diverse, value good talent, promote good talent. Fair pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Ever changing management at the top trickles down to reporting changes every two years to the "front line" employee base. If you remain open minded and embrace change, you'll flourish.

    -Work is easy, people typically work about 35 hour weeks and pay is pretty good

    Cons

    -Middle management is awful. They promote subject matter experts (those who have been there the longest) and not necessarily the best person for the job. Both managers I had had minimal people skills
    -Boast about flexible work arrangement but then don't follow through
