I worked at AIG full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Friendly people, nice office space/cubicle. The location in Houston try to motivate employees by having contest, giveaways and food ect.

Cons

Pay is low. It is hard to move around and there is no clear structure for you to follow if you want to move up. They pay outside employees more than the loyal employees that have been with the company for year. There are people that have been with the company for 15 plus years still doing case coordination
(data entry/customer service) making less then 38K . They have been talking years about starting a cross training program which has yet to go into affect

Advice to Management

Management should start a mentoring program so that they can motivate people to do bigger and better things within the company. I dont think an employee should be working in a call center for 10 plus years. Sometimes the Manager has to step in and start prepping that person for something better. Some ppl are afraid to move around because they are not educated or have a low self esteem. I think this is where a mentoring program would be great.

    I have been working at AIG as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are awesome.

    Cons

    The SDLC needs to be expanded to ALM.
    Tools are old, but there is a plan in place to upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the people on the front line what they need to do their job. Don't take for granted that a few people in management positions can make an informed decision without assessing conditions in the field every so often.
