Pros

I spent 5 years with Starr and had a very enjoyable experience. The people are smart, efficient and problem solvers. A great environment!

Cons

By 2010 many senior executives from AIG came over, possibly after waiting for some of the scandal "dust" to settle. With this came the old boys network I had wanted to avoid.
And things simply deteriorated from there.

Advice to Management

To back to problem solving and creative solutions. You were so good at it. Now, all I saw was indecision and finger pointing

    Pros

    Challenging work, work independently, good benefits

    Cons

    IT is inferior to similar companies of same size and revenue. Majority of managerial staff share small offices. Sr staff are AIG old timers, who are close minded. Extremely political. Big Egos.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded and let AIG go. Stop behaving like a bunch of high school girls bashing each other.
