    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.
