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

    Pros

    Most successful corporate turnaround in history of business, and the opportunity to truly shape the future if aig and insurance

    Cons

    Too much to do. But, come on NYers, who isn't up for that challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers to manage and lead their people. Make that a core competency.

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible with work from home (at least some leaders were), opportunity to take on additional responsibility.

    Overlapping organizations with no clear roles and responsibilities. Job security. Silo approach, with little teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee morale and stop the continual down sizing.

    Pros

    Amazing people, plenty of opportunities to learn. AIG had a vested interest in our success and we got to meet directly with many of the senior level executives.

    Cons

    A lot of change has happened since the summer, plenty of people got fired, I'm not sure what the company looks like anymore.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a climate of insecurity company-wide since management decided to let go so many people. Your best resources are your people.

Build a reputation for being excellent to people, not just a typical Wall St. corporate engine. This is good advice for any company willing to maximize business potential in our world driven by social media
