    Struggling to keep people first causing bad decisions such as laying off and outsourcing

    Show more trust in your people, share information with them, you have a lot of smart people in the company, you might be surprised what you get out of it

    I have been working at Aegon Asset Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aegon is very flexible and allows a healthy work-life balance. There are equal opportunities and no glass ceilings. It's a large company where the possibilities are endless. However, it's still maintained a friendly and fun culture.

    Cons

    The company is not very transparent. They will make a change one year and then reverse it a few years later. A lot of these decisions (terminations, outsourcing, etc.) don't make a lot sense.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, book smart people to work with.

    Cons

    This company pushes out people who give a damn, so the mid to upper level managers have been socially promoted. There's a good chance your boss knows less about his area of expertise than you do. I did say HIS, because in an office of 50 employees, not a single manager is a woman. The operational setup is a MESS. Spreadsheets tied to other linked spreadsheets. Macros that change the values of final results based off of the color of cell in a spreadsheet. Rather than allow workers to fix this problem, they locked us down. Without being allowed to fix a broken system we regularly make tremendous calculation mistakes. We're a HEDGING operation. That's unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a couple of DBA's, so the rest of us can do our jobs rather than be plagued with buggy, untraceable data.
