    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in East Rutherford, NJ

    I have been working at AEGIS Insurance Services full-time

    Pros

    Bagel fridays (Free!)
    Commuter, gym perks and bi-annual company events
    A lot of well-seasoned employees keep this machine relatively well-oiled (It's easy to take that for granted)
    Projects abound especially in the summer. Very few perpetual ones; practical goal-setting

    Cons

    Bagel Fridays (Usually doughy and hard!)
    Micro-management. This is where drones are created from humans just from sheer micro managing
    Gladiator-style "put 'em down" annual performance review process
    Horrible location for lunch (limited to a rather subpar cafeteria) but like prison-food, you might begin to acquire a taste for it.
    Favoritism is the rule of the day for a select-few
    Wide gap between the "rulers" (management") and the "paupers" (non-management)
    Relatively flat organization. Hence, more lateral shuffle than vertical movements
    If you are dealing with other divisions, get ready for the motherload of bureaucracy and politic-ing
    Might be tough for new-comers. Lots of tacit knowledge; documentation is improving however.
    Not a lot of sides to take, be care not to fall on the wrong side. It's just too small a place
    There is not much of any social aspect to working here. As usual, there are small little clicks here and there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micro-managing can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Otherwise self-motivated employees can become dumbed down to robots that take instructions. As for those that require the micro-managing, they will continue to, as it becomes almost expected of the nature of the employee-manager relationship.
    Advice: Provide opportunities for employees to take lead roles (with remote supervision) and develop them.
