    Fair and reasonable but unhappy as contract worker.

    Claims Examiner (Current Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Very professional and attentive

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe were really informed and took time looking at my candidature before the interview

    ConsStressful because I did my interview with my competition

    It was like speed dating I met 5 people for a half hour each, I wish it were longer

    Working at AIG

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Montreal, QC

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

    ConsBonus rating / Systems / Internal communication / Training

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you like bureaucracy, you'll LOVE AIG.

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    Pros1) Decent pay
    2) Minimal direct supervision
    3) Challenging projects

    Cons1) A "CYA" management culture from the CEO to newest consultant discourages innovation and "going the extra mile" for your internal Clients.
    2) An over complicated, under documented Project Management process. Usually there is only one or two SME's in each Department (Company wide) that truly understands it and can teach it.
    3) No paid holidays, PTO or vacations from Contractors / Consultants. Yet the job routinely required 50 hours a week to stay current.
    4) No bonus structure for Contractors / Consultants. Since 75% of the people working on Projects are Contractors / Consultants, they are expected to work hard so Sr. Mgmt. & the rare FTE Project Team member can benefit from the bonus pool.

    Great Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat working environment, knowledgeable personnel in their specific areas. Most are focused and productive.

    ConsVarious departments and units are often segmented and don't always seem to work well together on projects. Too much of an us vs them mentality

    If you want great benefits apply

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Amarillo, TX (US)

    ProsThe benefits are great medical, dental, glasses and the cost was very affordable - it was just me on coverage but family rates were very fair also. My department manager was awesome, she knew her stuff and when she didn't she would let us know and would find a solution for us!

    ConsThey were really a stickler for clocking in and out. You couldn't clock in before 8:00 and you had to clock out at 5:00 . Your minutes were very closely monitored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your worthy department managers credit!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
