    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    eWorking, everyone shares same concern so we have that in common

    Cons

    micro-managing by Sr Leadership, constant changes and doing more with less staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one looks forward to coming to work in my office - ask employees what is missing - there is no teamwork, no mutual understanding of goal setting and no sharing of information. Most fear they're going to be next...in my office, there are no career opportunities or ability to advance. The only way to improve is to leave the organization unfortunately.

    I have been working at AIG full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As AIG are spread across the world, it's pretty normal for you to get opportunities to learn how the market works on different places/cities.

    Cons

    As AIG are on the entire world, things are a little slow and confusing. Everything take too long to be done, and if you need anything new, you need to convince virtually everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to centralize activities better, I normal to have different people doing the same thing on different countries.

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

    AIG provides room for growth, offer training (onsite and offsite), and they offer a pretty good work-life balance. The company is very diverse and known world wide. The benefits are good with an excellent PTO schedule.

    Cons

    With every company you have your ups and downs but for the most part the company is actually a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees informed and practice the open-door policy.

    I worked at AIG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very large, well respected company in the industry with competitive salary and benefits. Fast paced environment with good opportunity for advancement for those who can distinguish themselves within their area of expertise with both field and Home Office management. Significant flattening of the organization within the management ranks has been ongoing for the past few years - entirely necessary and presents opportunity for those in the right place at the right time. Highly diverse employee base and continued emphasis on promoting diversity.

    Cons

    Outdated technology for account underwriting, book and producer management - lots of excel spreadsheets for home office reporting. Multiple rounds of layoffs have taken their toll on employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finish reorganization as soon as possible and provide as much communication, encouragement and appreciation to rank and file employees as possible. Provide a clear road map for the future of the organization and provide regular updates on progress and set backs.
