    Pros

    Challenging work, work independently, good benefits

    Cons

    IT is inferior to similar companies of same size and revenue. Majority of managerial staff share small offices. Sr staff are AIG old timers, who are close minded. Extremely political. Big Egos.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded and let AIG go. Stop behaving like a bunch of high school girls bashing each other.

    Pros

    The company sticks to its core business, understands their products, and how their products fit their client's needs.

    Cons

    The lack of an adequate financial/accounting reporting system doesn's allow the company to make quick and accurate decisions about their products.
