I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Leader in financial services. Unrivalled suite of products and services. Hard working colleagues. Too Big To Fail.

Cons

Since Hank Greenberg left it is no longer a place to build a lifelong career. The place is overrun with consultants who out-earn employees, and the new "rank and yank" performance evaluation system is badly implemented and has destroyed morale.

Advice to Management

Congratulations - you're now just another badly run large company. You lost the "vision thing" a long time ago.

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

    Pros

    PTO, well known organization. Personal growth under the right leadership

    Cons

    You might merge into a department with a manager who is uncomfortable with you.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know all of your employees not just those who you favor tribally. The level of production could dramatically increase.

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

    Pros

    Clusters of dedicated professional who can buffer the effects of bad management. The opportunity to take CE classes is available and in house computer technology is good.

    Cons

    Very political. Offering improvements to processes not encourage even when it clearly benefits the bottom line. Very much centered and geared towards relationships. If you know the right people you advance and are rewarded. If you work hard are profitable and very productive and don't know the right people you just are not compensated or promoted as readily or at all. Limited upward mobility if you are not in a clique or have a manager who appreciates your commitment and contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment conducive of inclusion and open communication. Reward team members on accomplishments and real contribution as apposed to who is "my best buddy"
