Thread regarding AIG (American Intl Group Inc.) layoffs

Stop the brain drain

Is our leadership doing anything to prevent people from leaving in droves? We are losing some of our best people all the time. I'm not surprised, I'm getting burned out myself - to say this is not good work environment would be an understatement.

But leadership should pay attention before it's too late and all the knowledge has left the building. I know they'd love to run AIG just on young, cheapest employees, but even they must know that would not work.

Something has to be done...

I wouldnt want anyone from my job at the party anyway; bringing their toxic vibes and sh–. When I quit I'm not taking anything home. I consider everything of mine, in the NJ Office, to be considered bad luck.

Well if you do get laid off or retire, unless you are in Management, this company won't throw you a party. If you are in Management, then you can expect a real nice company paid retirement party

To the original post, senior management wants people to leave so they don’t have to RIF and pay out a package.....

Here are the citizen classes at AIG:

High paid Execs (Level 25+). The elite

People who are overachieving with hopes of that eventual promotion and seriously thinking the STI bump will be significant. The delusional

People questioning their purpose in this company as they are drones in a mindless job working for an overly-serious buffoonish Manager. They have mastered the appearance of “hard work” while mostly texting, surfing, swiping, playing fantasy sports or just binge watching Netflix and snoozing in their pjs while they Ework. All the while they await the inevitable RiF and constantly calculate their severance package. The majority

Old War horses 3-4 years from retirement trying to lay low and avoid being told “we’re so incredibly grateful for your service.” Which means they’re out.

May the odds ever be in your favor.

The CIO is one of the biggest egomaniacs I have ever heard. I am sure they had to special order an extra large mirror for his office so he could look at himself.

It's a good thing they're outsourcing everything in IT, because no one wants to work here, just want to get severance and leave. Something big will break soon in production.

Here's a note to JR - you can't leave soon enough.

The talent drain is almost complete...no need for further discussion on this topic.
The proof is in all the Sev 1 and 2 we are seeing these days. Offshoring is (again) going to cost more money than it will save.

Good post, @tmj. Btw, try avoiding foul language when posting here. I don’t mind, but the web admins don’t like it.

They are turning this company into a hybrid of Marsh, XL Axa and Chubb. Hiring all external people for key positions. Says so much about what they think of the current employees. Career path at AIG? Forget about it. Move on if you are young and want a career.

Read my lips they don't care they're too busy stuffing their pockets with the big bonuses and salaries and getting their friends hired so that they can all get rich and then leave and the company will go down like a sinking ship

This IS a brain drain.

I posted on here earlier, which obviously got taken down, that I honestly believe working for this company (specifically Operations) is career sabotage.

They expect entry level employees to STAY entry level employees and if you show motivation, ambition or drive to learn innovate skills, you will be stonewalled into doing mindless mole-monkey b.s.

Applying around, this company has offered me literally 0 transferable skills which I would have developed on the job because everything we do is either outdated or mind-numbingly manual.

Some mid-level managers even try to deter employees from taking advantage of company-funded learning opportunities by refusing to sign off on an employee taking a course which "doesn't align with his or her direct job function" - so I guess we should all live with the purpose to simply go home after work and j–koff ?
