Pros

You can easily succeed by just being above average. If you like being pigeon holed for you entire career it's great. Also if you have no ambition this is the place.

Cons

Blatant favoritism, No stock. Bad review process. No salarie increases. Poor benefit packages.

Advice to Management

Say what you mean and mean what you say.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The job paid well and I liked my bosses very much. AIG has many very bright and talented professionals from whom to learn. I highly value the experience I received there.

    Cons

    I worked REALLY hard and long hours. My project was successful but for some reason I don't think management saw that. There is significant functional compartmentalization and it's difficult to determine where to go for explanations on how to accomplish everything.

    Advice to Management

    Top management has an extremely difficult job based on the financial issues which apparently stemmed from a financial division that took very high risks that led to the near collapse of the entire company. Benmosche and most of his predecessors appeared to be honest, intelligent, hard working people that appear to have been successful at saving this very large and disparate institution. My more direct managers were fantastic! (Despite the fact that I was laid off I am really glad to have worked there for as long as I did.) As for advice I'd suggest that, if it's possible, to clarify to employees how to get things done and whom to go to in order to do so. The bureaucracy is formidable and frustrating.


  2. "A good place work with great coworkers."

    Pros

    The working atmosphere is great, the people are even better.

    Cons

    The only con that I can see, the limited opportunity in certain careers.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to keep communicating with employees.
