    Benefits are good. 401k 6% + 3% is good.

    Sr. Leadership has hired grown-ups - I really hope they impact culture sooner rather than later.

    HR organization is terrible to work with and in.

    Lots of good people leaving realizing the culture will not change.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture, stop the politics

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits: generous vacation, 401k matching, work from home (more of a directive since dedicated desks were removed in favor of hotly sought-after hoteling space). Generally nice people, but as in all large corporations, there are bad apples that make coming to work a drag (somehow those folks are propped up and lauded by leadership).

    Cons

    Salary increase and internal transfers are rare. In my two years there, I didn't sense much meritocracy if at all. Highly political, and senior leaders have egos that get in the way of showing respect to employees. The project you're working on will probably not get implemented. This ends up being a waste of funds and resources for the company. Highly paranoid culture; many of my colleagues were secretly praying to get laid off since the severance benefits are generous.

    Advice to Management

    People were high on the new CEO. Hopefully he can raise morale, but that will only be possible if leaders of various business groups and their direct reports are evaluated across the board.

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

    Pros

    AIG is surprisingly adaptable considering its size, reshaping itself a number of times in the aftermath of the 2008 housing crash. The people here are resilient and dedicated to doing good work.

    Cons

    With a constant churn in leadership, it requires grass root efforts to keep momentum for worthwhile projects.

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers manage

    I worked at AIG full-time

    Pros

    Salary, coworkers, occasionally bring in lunch for department, work from home option is available but not guaranteed

    Cons

    Work expectations are unbelievable, there is a disconnect between the goals and actually how much work is required to implement. At times they had lost their minds.

    Advice to Management

    Don't plan for enough IT support personnel to support business.

    Pros

    Nice work space
    Colleagues are wonderul

    Cons

    Management is incompetent
    Long hours
    Low pay

    Advice to Management

    Management needs training in ways to motivate their employees. Management tends to rule by fear and turnover is high due to these tactics. Upper management needs to do a better job of choosing middle managers. Not everyone who is good at their current job is management material.
