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

    Pros

    AIG offers a fast paced, challenging environment where no two days are the same. The Finance team has been engaged in many process improvement initiatives designed to "lift & shift" work from legacy systems and processes to low cost service centers and onto the SAP platform.

    Cons

    Aggressive expense reduction efforts and a desire to meet accelerated short term incentive targets have driven major headcount reductions and a focus on near term results. There are still many inefficient legacy systems and processes, manned by fewer experts. Finance teams are expected to work on quarterly reporting and strategic projects simultaneously, while meeting senior management's desire to issue financials faster each quarter. The culture is very competitive and political.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO and COO have expressed a desire to grow the core business. A fresh look at the systems and process infrastructure is needed and a long term strategy that supports ongoing business and reporting needs should be implemented.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. PTO. Local upline.

    Cons

    Too big. Too many chiefs. No raises. Don't care about the employees. Top execs only care about their goals and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Care and invest in your employees. Give raises. People won't hang around much longer.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with great pay, benefits, and location. Ability to work from home is a major plus.

    Cons

    The workload is more than any other insurance company and management changes constantly. Once you're in a job, don't expect to ever be promoted or moved. Every manager is completely different from the next. The way you do your job changes like the wind.
