    Pros

    Brilliant training provided when beginning the role. A lot of support and money is spent on new graduates when they join the programme.

    Huge company, sometimes as a tech analyst you definitely realise you’re nothing but a supporting function to insurance business. Tasks and work can be tedious and just spreadsheets.

    I worked at AIG (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed, good work-life balance (however it depends on a team)

    Cons

    Old systems, not much investment in IT, too many systems.
    Teams work in silos, too much politics between the teams.
    Management do not listen to their employees and the employees have to deal with their poor decisions and mistakes.
    Managers too concerned about their careers rather than teams - in general if you are useful in their career progression due to skills then you are fine, the moment they don't need you get sidelined and not even get a thank you.
    Outsourcing and offshoring is the direction at the moment - other companies learned 10 years ago it is not a good idea.
    Management changes every 1.5 - 2 years and the strategy changes with them hence it is very hard to accomplish anything. Lots of initiatives are being started, only to be cancelled and started from scratch under a different name by another department that managed to get the C-suite ears. No one talks to people from the previous project hence the same mistakes are being made.
    Very poor communication between departments and this means in teams too.
    Frustrating place to work as it's very hard to get good relationships with other teams.
    Too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing and offshoring is not a good idea.
    New Global system is required for the company.
    Reduce a footprint of tools used - decide on strategic reporting tools for instance rather than using all.
    Ask employees for input into your decisions.
    Improve communication.
    Reduce toxic politics.
