    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.

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

    Pros

    Flex time off, vacation time

    Cons

    Cannot trust my most management or HR.

    Outsourcing many many jobs to India and other countries

    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 Many still have an outdated "we're AIG, take it or leave it" superiority complex.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 full-time

    Pros

    AIG provides excellent benefits and fair pay within a global organization. If you are mobile, it is an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    They sell work-life balance, but in reality it is not highly valued in the organization. While the pay is fair, they do not offer raises. The only time you receive a raise is if you are promoted.
