    Pros

    - Decent salary
    - 21 PTOs
    - good benefits in terms of health insurance and 401K (compared to other companies)
    - relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    - corporate work culture, so no jeans or casual shirts.
    - Still uses lot of traditional software's so not techno savy company, end of the day its an insurance company.

    reduce the corporate hierarchy and give more power to the lower level employees who do the actual work.

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

    Pros

    Great IT team to work with; Challenging business problems to solve; Somewhat flexible work schedule

    Cons

    No opportunity for career advancement; management does not invest in developing their employees; Always asked to take on significant responsibility beyond your formal job role, but with no possibility of advancement, so there is no chance of compensation for your additional efforts, so basically you are providing free labor; IT VPs and above are not qualified to run an IT organization as they have basically no understanding of technical domains; Projects are disorganized leading to a feeling of constant failure

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your people, not just on paper, but through action. Lead, don't manage. Invest in your employees if you want to retain them. Don't say something to your employees unless you mean it and are prepared to deliver, otherwise you become untrustworthy

    I worked at AIG full-time

    Pros

    The company is very large and run by competent management. I enjoyed my time there as the work is challenging, diverse and moves at a quick pace.

    Cons

    The company is going thru a lot of changes which calls for the reorganization of many departments. The company in some cases is almost eliminating departments and there is very little support staff remaining.

    Advice to Management

    The company for many years was known to have many of the most talented, experienced and tested claims professionals in the business.
