    I have been working at AIG as a contractor

    Pros

    I would like the benefits and paid time off. Good philosophy for customer service. Flexible work schedules and work life balance is okay.

    Cons

    It is an American company and they appear pulling jobs into the US or sending them to India. Some departments are over using contract workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and honesty. Treat them like you would like to be treated. This goes for non-management employees as well!

    I have been working at AIG full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start with acquit training programs and ability to underwrite complex accounts. Random scattering of good people.

    Cons

    Current compensation system does not include annual raises, your salaries is fixed within your job grade/title with no opportunity for increases unless you have an offer from another company or you are promoted, if you are promoted the company will not give more than a 12% raise.

    A "man-behind-the-curtain" system of evaluation you against your peers to determine your bonus.

    Gross company attitude towards other markets and brokers. Many still have an outdated "we're AIG, take it or leave it" superiority complex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the compensation structure.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary and that's the one thing that I can think of.

    Cons

    Bonus rating / Systems / Internal communication / Training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus should be more on the people working in the company and not on how profitable they are or can be. Happy empoyees are productive and loyal employees.

    I have been working at AIG

    Pros

    Learn things everyday; All colleagues have excellent background at Science Team. People are nice, and the pay is competitive.

    Cons

    As a software engineer, you couldn't find many people to discuss with about technical questions. Most of them are scientists and researchers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more engineers here.

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

    Pros

    Everything is clearly laid out. There's a defined policy for everything. So you don't have the petty issues that you can run into with family companies.

    Cons

    It's fine if you like the corporate world with NY big brother asking you to spend more time creating reports instead of generating revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company culture is more than putting posters of smiling stock photos in the restrooms.
