    I worked at AIG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Reasonably flexible hours and when you play the game right you might survive a few extra rounds of layoffs.

    Cons

    Everyone knows they will be fired at some point regardless of performance due to budget cuts. It strongly affects morale and as a result good people leave and remaining people don't work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Come clean with your staff about their outlook so they can prepare their resumes or transfers to another team.

    I have been working at AIG full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Used to be the people, the meaning in purpose in your work, and the opportunity to collaborate and solve big, bold problems

    Cons

    The new management doesn't treat employees with respect. They think the underwriters aren't smart or talented - many of the "top 100" leadership have never even bothered to visit a field office. They think that the only way to fix the problems at AIG is by a) putting controls and to manage by fear and b) replacing everyone with people from outside who will just execute on Zaffino's agenda. Peter and his... leadership team have done a reorg every 6 weeks it seems - the level of instability this creates means that people are constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's pretty basic knowledge that when you lay people off, how you do the layoffs has impact on the culture of the remaining employees. There's a way to do this that ruins morale, and there's a way to do this that can create a new mission. The rolling layoffs has create a morale crisis that's worse than it was in 2008

    Advice to Management

    Leadership isn't just about hiring your friends and relatives to execute on your agenda. Good leaders are able to make the case for change and win over skeptics. Not doing this shows that the new leadership team are cowards

    Pros

    Quality people to work with who are receptive to change and resilient. Entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    Through the meltdown it lost its core values and failed to recognize the most important component of ANY organization is its internal customer. If you fail to listen and commit to the external customer you will fail to satisfy your external customer. Furthermore, the solution to controlling operational expenses is not always the firing of people. Root cause analysis is the first and proper step. Firing people is... typically NOT a well thought through and intelligent strategy when you have no root cause analysis completed.
