How hard is it to move up the ranks in underwriting? Have people stayed in the same position without a promotion or raise for multiple years? I would hate to do 10 years of work just to only become a senior uw after… And what’s a typical raise... — read more
To those others who got transferred did you receive any severance pay from AIG?
When will be forced to submit regardless if you plan to return to the office or work from home? I guess AIG will fall in line with other companies that require vaccinations regardless if you come into the office or not.
Has anyone else heard of a major RIF coming this November, right before Thanksgiving?
What happens to the accrued Vacation Days when we resign. Does AIG pay out the accrued Vacation Days or it just elapses?
Miles of red tape, people make you go through long permission processes that you find out after were unnecessary. There's a good 20% who are good actors and the rest .. don't care if they obstruct business as usual, as long as they get to control... — read more
A person from whom many of us had something to learn left and was replaced by a person who is more than lost. I cannot blame that person for his incompetence, because it is not his fault that this company hired him. I help him with some things, but... — read more
I have been trying to find a new job for more than three months now. I was hoping it would be a lot easier given that everyone is talking about how hot the market is at the moment. I would rather say that the market is in chaos. What are your... — read more
How many times will they lay off people it will take hiring two or three new people to replace before anybody here learns anything?
I’ve seen so many good folks laid off from IT in the past few years and replaced by “friends and family” of the inner circle with higher pay. And many believe that’s simply the way it works and AIG continues to go from bad to worse. Why has nepotism... — read more
Took early retirement November 2019. Best decision made. No future at AiG as they send as much work iff shore as they can.
I still can’t even visualize that moment. Returning to a cold office where there are no people I used to enjoy working with. I can't tell if the bigger change will be returning to the office or when I first started working from home. I got used to... — read more
Turns out that was a mistake. I was hoping this would be the place that would provide me with a better chance of moving forward with my career but instead, I hit an unbreakable wall of nepotism once again. Now I'm looking to leave again, with nothing... — read more
AIG leadership doesn't give a damn about the health of its workforce. They've confirmed Sept. 14th as the return to work date in the midst of raging Delta virus, upcoming cold temperature months where the virus thrives (along with the flu virus)... — read more
I was happy to get a new colleague and hoped my workload would be a bit unburdened. Turns out I rejoiced too soon. The new colleague is already a former colleague. I am glad for him, because I also wish to have left a long time ago, but I wonder if... — read more
Most companies in NYC are postponing their return to the office until January 2022. No announcement yet to move ours from next week on 9/14?
Does anyone know what's going on with all the IT issues lately? My co-workers are also having different issues as well. Kind of scary.
I see a lot of people jumping ship from PCG. Is something about to happen and these folks are just getting out by themselves in advance?
It’s been over a month since we were told that were going back to the office September 14th. In the email, Pete said to expect communication from your local office…. We have heard exactly NOTHING. No idea what this looks like for us. This is going... — read more
Should be delayed. People are getting very sick with the delta covid variant, double vaccinated. I personally know of someone. This virus is highly contagious.
Does anybody else get the feeling they're being forced out? I'm being given an unreasonable amount of work as well as things to do that were never part of my duties before and which I know very little about? It feels like I'm being set up to fail... — read more
Does anyone know why we are required to work one day a week in the office. There is no logical or even good business reason why that I can think of myself
Those pushing and wanting to return to office either are managers or very lonely people with no life.
Why won't AIG do voluntary buyouts? Normal companies do this. Why no plan, knowledge transfer to offshore contractors? We all know AIG wants to rid itself of tech FTEs. Because of poor execution, now we have skills gaps where we end up having more... — read more
I haven't been here long enough to have witnessed layoffs. Not sure I understand this whole Blackstone thing, but I guess it is not good for those of us in Investments+ in L&R? How much notice do you get for a layoff? Just wondering what signs to... — read more
Amazon, apple, cbs, Viacom, wellsfargo all pushing back return to work in office
2new COVID variations Delta plus and lambda so Aig should delay return to office, but won’t as if people die from getting COVID then they will save money won’t have to lay them off just another way to show how they have cut cost
AIG has made great progress in our goal to be the leading insurance company. Adjusted underwriting combined ratio continues to show great improvement, but we were hampered by higher than expected CAT losses. If we maneuver the numbers correctly we... — read more
Option is with return to office , some will get COVID so when you do hire attorney, go to as many doctors as you can, take off on Fmla and short term, have attorney try for having aig pay settlement for endangering your life , the more that go out... — read more
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
