Senior Cyber Risk Defense Analyst (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – May 10, 2018
AIG is a great place to work if you're well establish in the higher levels or the opposite just starting. If higher up with greater years of experience the opportunity to take a leadership role and really drive the growth/maturity of the Cyber department is truly there. If just starting out in the field the opportunity to gain the experience needed for the next step is here at AIG as they grow and Mature in Cyber.
Caveat being if you're mid-level, its pretty dry... mostly consisting of hand off busy work and or if you do find or lead something its often broken up or re-delegated to others as it grows or just drops off the edge of the earth and dies. This leaves lacking opportunity to own something for its technical life span and show true strength and weakness in individual skill sets. There is also no line/scope for the Cyber department positions, Leadership will be working T1, SRs will be working T1, and even the flip side of T1 somehow leading T2/T3 development projects. This makes a clear path for advancement or ownership/belonging/scope of task very convoluted.
Great work environment,opportunity for advancement. Senior management is available for inquiries and helpful in career choice. AIG is made of of several companies, however the reorg is causing layoffs company wide. There is room for advancement and a great place to establish a career
Underwriter (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 8, 2018
The executives are running this company into the ground. The employee morale is horrible because everyone is overwhelmed with the plethora of work after all of the layoffs and not hiring replacements when people quit.
Benefits are really good but advancement is very limited and management is very removed from their team given their global locations managers could be thousands of miles away which makes it hard for managers to get to know their team well.
There are layoffs every year which hurts morale and puts a dent in job security.
Poor computer system software for accomplishing work tasks
Account Engineer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 5, 2018
As an account engineer doing account reviews, the replacement work software (GRASP) often required four to five times as long to accomplish account reviews. Little consideration was given by management for the increased burden in establishing work loads and due dates created by this software.
