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

Pros

Great campus. Good benefits and vacation policy. Very professional and corporate work environment. Free parking at Houston campus. Very intelligent and talented workforce.

Cons

Commute - the campus is located on Allen Parkway and has limited connectivity by metro bus.
The HR department is manned by space cadets for the most part, full of contractors and interns who lack clarity of thought and have no authority to share information with candidates. The exit interview was a farce, they only wrote my employee number on a perforated notepad with comments saying keys returned, blackberry returned with charger. No questions asked, none answered.

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

    Pros

    The managers were nice and willing to work with agents with anything they might need. The break rooms were nice and moderately stocked. The pay is good and the hours aren't bad. Never had to work a weekend.

    Cons

    They were slowly letting go all of their temporary employees under the guise of "they weren't the right fit" even though all of the reviews about the agents were on par. As the numbers in the U.S. support desk dwindled the numbers in Malaysia (Kuala Lampur) grew. As the numbers overseas grew the comments from the english speaking employees that were being supported grew very negative. More time was wasted on trying to get through the language barrier than fixing the issue.

    Advice to Management

    I get that hiring people overseas is infinitely cheaper, but that also makes the quality of support that your employees get go down the toilet.

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

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn and advance - they pay for training such as actuarial exams, CFA, FRM and the like. Good work-life balance- although you are expected to work hard, you can actually get away at the end of the day.

    Cons

    The company went into federal receivership, which resulted in losing some of the international companies. FP lost billions of dollars, which resulted in major organizational changes and the diminishment of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being an insurance company, not finance.
