To paraphrase the scene in Pulp Fiction where Marcellus Wallace tells the boxer(bruce willis) to take a dive. That is how it feels to be a low level manager at AIG. Just go out there are tell your team if they work hard they will get a raise, be... — read more
Anyone know whether there will be layoffs in August?
Probably the stupidest waste of time I have ever encountered. Are you on track to hit your goals? Yes I'm on track to hit my goals. AIG cares about your career. Really, why then do I outperform my goals every year and never get promoted? Why is... — read more
The return to the office date should be revised until the Delta variant is under control.
I’m already used to WFH and wouldn’t like to go back to the office for many reasons. I know some of you are not afraid, but I would be really anxious going back in the office for fear of a greater chance of infection, regardless of vaccination. I... — read more
Many of AIG's IT professionals will be leaving today. IT will never be the same. All I can say is good luck to those that remain. R.I.P.
Looks like they’re bringing us back to the office September 14th. Many other companies are offering incentives to come into the office, or get vaccinated. Sure doesn’t look like that’s the situation from this first announcement. — read more
Let me tell you, being laid off while being a middle-aged man (I'm assuming the same is true for women) is a mess. I'm still years away from retirement but I'm at an age where every employer sees me as a potential outdated burden instead of an... — read more
Any news on July2021 layoffs?
Any news? Besides investments under LR. So quiet....
I’m having a difficult time deciding on whether I want to tough it out or hit the road. I started 3 years ago and in those 3 years I feel as if my career has been stagnant and I’m always concerned about RIFs. I used to have a goal of staying for 5... — read more
Been quiet... any rumors of a next round in Corporate Finance coming up? Will it happen before folks start to go back into office in sept??
This blog is as bad as AIG. I'm am signing off. Aig is terrible and so is layoff.com. just do yourself a favor and delete both from your life.
Has anyone heard if anymore layoffs for claims and mms
You are doing yourself a disservice by working here. In 10 years don't say you weren't warned.
That is, how long have you been working here without any motivation? It’s really awful to work anywhere just for the sake of payment. Very often I feel sorry for customers, but simply this company no longer provides any motivation for employees... — read more
I think that the professional and talented people are a minority here. I wonder why AIG has long treated the worst those who are the best workers? The best people are constantly given more and more reasons to leave AIG, and their positions are taken... — read more
I'm not sure it's possible. I've noticed that everybody I work with seems depressed. Our productivity is suffering but how do you motivate people when we have to deal with constant layoffs, a belligerent manager, no recognition for hard work, and so... — read more
To the people that think there is no elitism or nepotism at AIG, another top executive position filled by a friend from Marsh. Imagine that!
Where is Petey taking us on holiday this summer? "Mr. Zaffino will also be entitled to a $195,000 annual allowance for personal use of the corporate aircraft, as was provided to the former Chief Executive Officer, and he will be required to... — read more
where you can out perform your team, and your department, while hearing from your manager that you don't deserve to gain more exposure to other areas of the company because you don't know enough about other areas of the company.. A white person... — read more
Many times I hear the phrase that I should be happy to have a job at all when I complain about the situation I am in at AIG. That phrase is very comforting. No, on the contrary, I don’t think anyone should be happy to just have a job here. This... — read more
AIG is paying rock star salaries for less than acceptable results. This has been consistent since the 2008 crash. Bob B is the only decent CEO this company has seen in decades and his time here was short. When you are too big to fail, it takes a... — read more
So financial statements can be hard to decipher, someone correct me if I am wrong. Based on what I see, the bottom line was basically inflated due investment income primarily from financial services. The stock market is at all time highs. Also... — read more
$50 stock price today!!! Those options senior leaders got back in the day are looking good. I hope all employee and ex-employee shareholders dial in to the annual meeting. I’m sure the board will have some insightful and encouraging things to say... — read more
You are all getting this wrong. Yes, AIG is a terrible place run by terrible people, but! COVID has moved everything to virtual. Use AIG to pay your bills, get insurance and a matching 401k. Then, work on starting a side business or just get... — read more
Not sure why the last post was archived layoff.com? It didn't break any of your rules? Low level management here. We were on a recent call discussing diversity. AIG is setting quotas for female employees and people of color to try to force... — read more
Stop calling AIG “woke” and acting like people of color have some leg up at this dump. Last year, just months after George Floyd, the company laid off the 4 highest-ranking African Americans on the same day. 2 of which were the heads of diversity... — read more
Does anyone have any info on this meeting g next week? I have never had mandatory town hall, looks like most claims involved so doesn't look like a layoff
Heard there's an internal investigation ongoing which already led to the layoff of Eric Zheng (China CEO) in 2018, John Carey (China Chairman) in 2019, Chris Townsend in 2020, and is targeting Kevin Hogan or even higher (PZ? Can they do it... — read more
Picture this: A doctor performs brain surgery on a patient every few years, cutting out different nerves and connections each time. Surgery after surgery after surgery. The patient is trying to rehab with what’s left, and the doctor keeps on... — read more
Every single time without fail they manage to lay off at least a few of by far the best and most productive employees. Then, when it’s time to fill their positions with cheaper replacements (which was the goal all along) it turns out they have to... — read more
Redundancies also announced for claims and operations in Emea. They are outsourcing core parts of the Company, this cannot be a simple cost cut plan, this seems like a plan to sell all the Company. Time to update the CV pals Looks like I left on... — read more
To look for a new job, interview, etc!
Someone posted it before and it is so spot on that I listen to it every few months. The entire 45 minutes is well worth your time, but from minute 24 to 28 or so it screams AIG. There is nothing controversial about it Layoff.com watchdogs so no... — read more
i finally understand what AIG 200 was, firing everyone unil only 200 executives remain! This isn't AIG, THIS. IS. SPARTA. !!!!
The consultation has started and HR will tell us if we're getting the bullet now or TUPE and redundant in 12 months. No concrete information from HR as usual so we're busy filling the vacuum with rumours. We're hearing the usual c––p from... — read more
