    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.

    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 worked at AIG as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay, networking opportunities, meeting other interns, not much overtime work,

    Cons

    Disorganized internship program, some managers did not know that interns were arriving and did not have specific projects planned out for them. I did endless data entry all day. Technology is very outdated.

    I have been working at AIG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, good compensation, good opportunities, challenging work

    Cons

    3rd party applications
    old technology
    comprised of consultants who get paid more than employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring technical consultants. They end up being more costly to the company than having an in house dev team.
    Stop using 3rd party applications. None of them can interact with each other, and a lot of them are maintained poorly. Again, hire developers to create these solutions. It'll make the company more efficient.
    Lack of new technology will steer away young talent in the future. Get with the times.
