Pros

Worked in a small group within the larger AIG Investments. Investments was large and invested in a myriad of products. AIG was truly a global powerhouse. Although now it would seem that the company will be sold in parts to other insurance or financial institutions.

Cons

Lack of communication between groups. Little shared expertise between groups.

Advice to Management

My advice would have been to have better knowledge sharing between groups.

    Pros

    the awd is a very good place to work if you looking for a steady lay back position. If you want to make money be a part of the senior management. The benefits are ok however you will pay a higher than usual benefit. The available pto time ar fairly good. the management are flexible. they are really supporting diversity and it's ttue for the upper management too.

    Cons

    There is no premium just upper management got a check here and there. you can ask for a raise but you won't receive a lot. You can get a 25$ gift card once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    I can't really say anything other than fire half of the division and start fresh. ok that was just a joke.

    "Nice environment to work and learn new things, probably not a good timing with AIG situation."

    Pros

    They have the best technology money can buy. Equipments are up to date. Never a mundane work place. Projects are interesting and keep you challenged. Most people are friendly towards each other with client focus in mind. Managers are understanding and flexible. They allow you to work from home as long as you have a valid reason and not abuse it.

    Cons

    Daily long hours of work and weekend work is frequent if you are in Technology. Off shore consultants are incompetent to say the least. A bit bureaucratic with structured processes. It is mainly for SarBox and audit but it could get the way of completing tasks needed to accomplish. Strict compliance rules and regulations for personal trading, don’t even think about "day trading".

    Advice to Management

    There are more than twice the amount of consultants than employees. Let go the ones that are not producing results.
