    Pros

    Great work experience. HR does an excellent job with intern training and preparation. A lot of depth and variety at a large company that provides both insurance and investment product.s

    Cons

    Some mundane work at times. Sometimes slow deal flow during particular weeks or seasons. Not as much transparency among underwriting product-specific departments and other divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recruit young talent in an industry that typically has workforce of an older generation.

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

    Pros

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

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

    Cons

    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

    They allow you to work from home even if that means you work longer hours. They also have some great people. Their corporate matching is great 2 for 1

    Cons

    They do not compensate you for all the work. Promotions and raises are inconsistent across functions and not fair at all.

    Advice to Management

    more team building and people, create a more cohesive corporate culture and make sure people are happy.

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hopefully Brian Duppereault can save this company.

    Cons

    A mess of a company. Former CEO Peter Hancock was a disaster and morale is at its lowest since the financial crisis. Promotions and salary increases are rare as budgets continue to be cut. Unless you are desperate for a job, you are best to avoid this company. You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    Get competent people in place in key support functions at HQ (this will not be easy as few would consider joining AIG).
