It's funny you say, "there is no free lunch" when nobody asked for anything for free. The point being made was that, objectively speaking, many of the younger employees DO work harder, DO work smarter and get stonewalled by insecure middle and upper management...while they utilize nepotism, and social capital to trump quantitatively measurable productivity.

Notice how the people who say things like, "there is no free lunch" try to change the narrative, from pointing out obvious slackers who have ALLOWES themselves to get too settled into their cushioned positions, to younger people wanting free promotion, equity and compensation. Instead of acknowledging that, yeah, maybe people at AIG, especially those who are most afraid of losing their jobs and being found out as a bunch of lazy, bare-minimim valuing, incompetents, they shift the blame to young people using straw man and red-herring arguements and fallacies.

That statement (below), alone, proves the whole point being made about stonewalling talented and analytical employees at the cost of lazy, older, employees with stale skills and even more stale leadership ability

How about helping the "people" by not shifting their jobs overseas. Easy to spot the young, arrogant, self absorbed on the site. One expects the experienced to spoon feed them industry knowledge and bow down to their entitled rise in their careers. How about this. If you want to know something, go do the work. There is no free lunch, and you're not entitled to anything.

Today is D day by the way.

Honestly, I don't think I really care about most of the "old" people at AIG. As far as I'm concerned, the young people aren't the ones who withhold industry knowledge for success, they aren't the ones stonewalling ambitious and bright employees, they aren't the ones driving all the talent away. Most of the older (40+) employees have the most insurance knowledge, but lack the skills and abilities to drive production and quality in their respective teams. They're afraid of debating with logic and revert to dubious assumptions and they seem to get away with it because (ding ding ding) they're even older boss doesn't want to look bad hiring an incompetent.

As a result of this, we have people in managerial positions guiding entry level and young professionals down a pointless career at AIG; pigeonholding they job duties and making it even more difficult to job search because it's not like they can put anything worth while on their resume, in regards to their time at AIG.

They are essentially increasing the insurance knowledge gap and hurting the insurance industry, long term...just because they're afraid of being found out (of being undeserving of their titles). On top of all this, they talk about what they're doing in their free time (spending time with kids, vacationing, going to the beach, etc.). I've never heard of them trying to better themselves academically or intellectually. They complain about 'never being trained on how to manage', yet they don't have any concept of selflessness.

They chit chat with each other and huddle around cubicles and offices, and complain about how AIG is favoring young people. The "young people" aren't wasting their time chit chatting about b.s. like the quality of the kitchen's coffee or gossiping about their spouses' jobs. They're keeping their heads down and doing real work...and being passive aggressivley punished for it.

The folks impacted by getting sick and losing their jobs? The folks who had their parents in presumably safe nursing homes only to create vectors within them due to brilliant leaders?
Plenty. And I do my part. For the rioters? Nothing. I will do nothing.

Yes. Layoffs are stone cold certainty next week.

How is AIG going to help the man on the street? By adding more to the people on the street by Riffing more employees, targeting older workers, and sending jobs overseas

come on now, get with the aig program. you got $500 and a promise that you wouldn't be rif'ed until the virus crisis was over(which is apparently next week if you believe this blog).

if you keep helping people that really need it you can't give 200% sti bonuses to execs and buy back stock to prop up exec portfolios. you have to have priorities!

its expensive to pay an old guy to quarantine in a mansion in Bermuda. have a heart. lol

Company discriminates against older professionals. Single-handedly this company has probably caused more harm than it has contributed to corporate goodwill regardless of their yearly volunteer events (for show only).

Please define what you mean by "People on the Street".
The definition of this I suspect varies per person.
