    Pros

    Co-workers are great! Benefits are alright, some perks, vendors bring in lunch and thank you for the job you've done.

    No Raises or Bonuses.

    Treat your employee's BETTER and be more available

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were fair to pretty good. There are pockets of very talented people to learn from although not many.

    Cons

    Senior management and execs more concerned with themselves and their comp than employees. Lack of competence by some senior leaders seems to go unrecognized. Morale is tough (24/7 on call). Senior leaders not organized in what they are trying to accomplish as they run from fire drill to fire drill.

    Advice to Management

    Need a top to bottom 360 degree evaluation of all senior and mid level managers that is reviewed and shared transparently.
