    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent bonus
    Decent pay
    Solid brand for resume

    Cons

    Company talks about diversity but has laid off almost every high performing African American leader

    Many people in positions that don't deserve them and lack the experience

    Lack of people management

    Low morale due to frequent layoffs over the past four years

    Advice to Management

    If diversity is so important stop laying off top diverse talent

    Diversity is "important" yet ERG budgets were slashed almost 50%

    Everyone is on pins and needles wondering when they will be laid off. It's not a good culture

    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people and good managers. Distribution of work load out of balance because of high turnover. Some people do way more than others. Overtime not available.

    Cons

    No raises, no overtime. High turnover rate with constant need to train new people.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the workload out more evenly, better training, offer overtime and raises.

    If there is a gym inside of the company building, that would be awesome.

    Pros

    AIG has good employee benefit programs, offers flexibility in terms of telecommuting and the internal audit IT department has a great team.

    Cons

    Since AIG is a big company, there is constant change going on at all the time. In my two years tenure, two CEOs have changed and they bring their new team with them .. forcing constant change.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit top management with a vision

    Pros

    Large company with many different departments in one location allowing for the potential to cross train to translate to new learned skills

    Consistency, follow through and open communication
