    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.

    Pros

    Incredible advancement opportunities.
    Amazing work environment.
    Very enjoyable and satisfying job duties - I absolutely love what I do.

    Cons

    Training isn't great, if you can't just "fake it til you make it." It might not be a great place for you.
    Quite a large number of the employees are "consultants." (Temps) - So no paid days off or holidays while you are a temp.

    Advice to Management

    Training and post-training support would go extremely far.

    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits package is good. If you are in technology, you are going to be further behind coming here. There is a lot of talk and hiring to move forward, but your project will be cut and you end up supporting old neglected applications.

    Cons

    Very outdated technology in most groups. There is a very old club culture and constantly changing top nothing really moves past planning into action.

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in new methods if you are going to cut long term expenses

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

    Pros

    It's a good place to work. The co workers make it wonderful. HR is the reason that so many good people leave and find jobs that pay more.

    Cons

    People who work hard don't get recognized for it. Once you start helping another team your always expected to be doing your job and helping everyone else with their job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to their own teams. Some people slack off while others who get paid less are working hard.
