Thread regarding AIG (American Intl Group Inc.) layoffs

Yammer

When was the last time u went into yammer? Do it... I was surprised to see so many topic starters with the name "hidden". Well I guess those who frequent yammer didn't expect that eh.

Are there anyone left?

I disagree with @110IBOwX-4khg. There are lots of groups and you can get some good information on Yammer. I have never found it to be sales oriented. I think it's a great source for information. However, I do see some employees on it continuously.

In fairness, Yammer is really more for sales side of the house. Remember, AIG does sell products.

But yeah in Claims and other loss centers, using Yammer is a career-limiting move.

Of course they don't have enough work to do. Insecure management is afraid of giving out assignments to the most skilled employees, so we just sit around and do mindless b.s.

I agree that there is little time for internal social media. As it is, we get a lot of internal e-mails. There is a lot of good information that also comes through e-mails. I would rather e-mail someone to find out information than go there. I am more of a private person and don't want the whole company to see. I would use it if I had an issue and couldn't get an answer for it. Otherwise I find it very distracting and I have noticed there are some employees that are on it all the time and it makes you wonder if they don't have enough work to do or what.

Yammer are for the folks that were once of importance in High School. .....cheerleader types.
Some times you can find some information that is helpful but, who the heck has time for internal social media?

How do I even get into Yammer?

I love how AIG even removes any Glassdoor reviews which are remotely negative.

I put an equal number of pros and cons and it still gets deleted and the replaced with "Business Analyst" - 5 star review - "great place to work" for the same location I had my review for.

It really is hilarious...whoever the social media managers are, for this company must be proud of their ground-breaking work
