    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Variety of assignments and opportunities. New CEO says all the right things. Solid business strategy. Change in CEO was needed.

    Cons

    18+ months of staff reduction has led to further turnover after bonus payout. Morale low, people overworked and burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many strategists and not enough focus on executing.

    AIG has a nice work environment and the people are very friendly. They have many work location options in the NY/NJ Area.

    co-locate teams to build synergy

    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.
