My personal opinion is that AIG too easily gives up talents to competitors. I've heard of multiple cases where an employee here was very undervalued, literally invisible, and after he went to competition and to a much better company, he very quickly became a star performer there. What's the problem? Have we decided to become just a source of talents for other companies or what?

AIG has no interest in paying anyone low-level. Our competitors aren’t d-mb. They know in the Claims world someone can spend 3 years at AIG and get a ton of experience and training. All they have to do is throw $15K on top of their meager salary and that person jumps over in a heart beat ready to roll. AIG Claims has been an excellent feeder program for the competition for years.
It goes back to what everyone on here is saying. Your talent at AIG is irrelevant. Personal friendships and the ability to kiss up is all that is valued at AIG. A smart company would want hard working, problem solving employees that speak up and resolve issues.
AIG values friends that shut up and go with the program even if it makes no sense. It makes leadership feel superior and that is what they desire. They hate questions that they can't answer. Of course, it does little to help the company get better, but who really cares about that?
This was my experience. Much happier at my new company so far. It's amazing having a manager that actually listens.
