    I have been working at AIG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    30 days vacation annually, great RRSP match, lots of internal events, employee resource groups and clubs, free museum program, annual bonus in April, global job grading and salary ranges for transparency, wonderful & inspiring female CEO in Canada, great HR & Admin team, beautiful office connected to Union Station, most positions have some ability to work from home

    Cons

    Most of the best opportunities are in New York, long -time employee's salaries don't keep up with current market value, no annual raises or cost of living increase, annual bonus is tied to overall company performance, raises and promotions take forever to go through, most mid- high level managers are male, systems & technology are lagging behind, salary ranges are huge for same job grade and difficult to move within them

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward top performers proactively.
