    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Place for start to earn experience and for beginners

    Cons

    Transition period at the company. Layoffs are high as is turnover. Iong term employees are waiting for the ball to drop and reduction in force of current employee pool is high :(

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Inform employees of the direction the company is headed. Allow current employees to keep up with the current needs of the company to allow people to enhance their skill set in order to provide additional value to the company and leverage the existing EXPERIENCE in lieu of terminating employees in order to reduce cost. Seems like age and compensation discrimination

    Pros

    Large multinational company - many opportunities to learn financial services industry -- commercial or consumer insurance or retirement services

    Cons

    Recent (past 2-3 years) of many reorganizations and downsizing

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the job cuts every three months -- it's demoralizing to the employees.

    AIG has some great departments to work for. Some of the younger departments leave room for innovation and welcoming change. Benefits are good, especially with a tenure . Work from home is encouraged

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

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k, healthcare, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Loves you until time to get a raise for a promotion - expects 7/24

    Advice to Management

    Why do you tell people they are great, give them a grade (or maybe two) promotion with no raise. You tell us we'll make up for it with both short and long term incentives.

    Career opportunities without the raises/money.

    Pros

    The company I originally worked for was purchased by AIG before I left. I wasn't there long enough to form a true list of pros after the transition, but in that short time that I was there everything was great.

    Cons

    At my location, it was hard to move up to other positions.

    Pros

    New CEO seems to be a man of good character, which is a welcome change from the last.

    Cons

    Very mixed messages and even hostility from senior management. Company has seemed rudderless since the departure of Benmosche.
