    Great exposure to a wide range of issues in a fast-moving enterprise.

    I worked at AIG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people at company

    Cons

    Poor Management - Poor decision making and a lack of guidance has led to a mismatch in aligned goals across the company
    - No probation periods. This has led to some very poor recruits being taken on by the company
    - Senior Management think far too much about themselves to care about the other 95% of the company. This has led to severely understaffed teams and extremely poor turnarounds when signing off on new members of staff
    - Lack of opportunities for progression due to lack of senior positions and extremely poor at retaining talent
    - When compared to our competitors AIG do not offer many perks to there employees considering the size and profitability of the company.
    - No regular pay rises and a very poor bonus structure

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and compare AIG to other companies that occupy the same market and see what else could be done to improve as AIG as we are ranked very lowly compared to our competitors.

    Pros

    Brand
    Pay my bills
    Benefits acceptable
    For a grad, great company to go through this hardship.

    Cons

    Understaff and do not admit it. In fact questioned why productivity being low.

    Play game, people say different things to different people. Two faces.

    Toxic environment , no respect to employees time and privacy. When stuck at work just call whoever on leave to ask about stuff.

    No work/life balance, not even lunch or toilet breaks. People work around the clock. Because of global company.

    I did not hear a single pls or thank you for work being assigned. When you submitted your work, you got chased for the work you haven't done. EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    Only focus on negatives and mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    No need. You will be too busy to read this.

    Continue to listen to agents, they have a wealth of knowledge. Where possible continue to include agents when looking at new ways of dealing with things..

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to work with the biggest programs and manage the biggest losses. Holy just don't get they anywhere else.

    Cons

    Has an employee culture that can be a bit factory like. Can make you feel very expendable at time. Salaries are not great but getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the HR/marketing driven employee engagement. Offer employees benefits comparable to other companies, value their input and pay them appropriately.
