IT had the most layoffs and it continues. Majority replaced by KL / Malaysia. Replacements are not up to par, and no actual official news on layoffs as they try to keep each lay-off in each location under the limit for announcements. This is almost sinful and almost illegal. This impacts business and customers. When will the company have a clear strategy is unknown.

Why are you on here if it doesn't serve any purpose to you?
Freudian slip perhaps?
This site is not serving any useful purpose. People are generally tired of writing about the issues, the layoffs continue, AIG continues to flounder and nothing is achieved. Those that have written recently are mid-level managers who are still employed.
IT Operations and Support layoffs at Fort Worth today, next Monday and next Friday.
Some write with deep knowledge on timing. I wonder who you are and how do you know details? Or is it guesswork? I would be careful. Seems you are part of this group.
They are doing a little at a time. More to come.
Anyone knows about RIFs in my current organization (DATS) that supports IT and Investments ? There were some last month.
How is the Business Development Team doing?
AIG is replacing US workers by workers offshore in large numbers. This does not align with current governmental policy to keep work onshore. These are NOT unique high skilled work that needs offshore employees. The numbers are quite massive overall. This should be reported to the Dept of Labor. No public announcements are being made as they are working to game the system by capping layoffs in each location below the number requring reporting. Shoddy middle managers are going along playing the game so they continue employment (which is important since they will find it hard to find a job elsewhere).
I have been at AIG for 13 years and I have never seen the morale this bad...It is very sad what is happening to this company.
I agree. Both don't represent what AIG did. However, this business decision does have adverse effects on the company's future and morale or what's left of it.
Why do you say it's illegal or sinful?
