    I have been working at Aegon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some departments provide thorough training for the processing required to perform their specific job. Cross training and learning new functions is encouraged.

    Cons

    I've been employed here for 8 years and for 6.5 years I've been working mandatory overtime. I have learned how to process many other functions but have not been compensated accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate and takes care of your employees. Without employees, you wouldn't have any customers.

  3. Great company, but looking to outsource a lot more to India. Best company when I started, heading down hill.

    I worked at Aegon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great bonus, good people, international opportunities. You will learn a lot of good things that will help build your business knowledge. Great opportunities to do multiple jobs within this organization

    Cons

    Started to outsource a lot of things to India after 2008. Things became much tighter and poorly ran. Highly political and highly relationship based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, fix processes and then look at outsourcing.

    I worked at Aegon full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Rather relaxed culture at our office, generally no overtime even though our project is on a tight schedule.
    The work I had was pretty exciting and I got to learn a lot of new stuff, but a lot of co-workers are not too happy.
    Manager was really nice and accommodating, they have a lot of budget for work outings.
    Pay is relatively more generous than what I've seen.

    Cons

    Too few PTO days compared to the rest of the industry, benefits are not good.
    I wish they could move to more desirable locations, Cedar Rapids and Baltimore are not good places to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider improving the benefits, a lot of people are complaining.
    Please consider input from lower level employees about project timeline, that way we don't have impossible deadlines.

    I worked at Aegon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    great co-workers, fairly decent amenities depending on which building you work at

    Cons

    not much else anymore unfortunately. Used to be a great place to work but has gone way downhill. So many unhappy people. They would rather let go of hard working people who made the company successful and hire and train people off the street and their standards appear to be getting lower by the day with the tatooed pierced unprofessional looking people who keep coming through the door. No vision here except to have warm bodies in the seats to process the work. Its a shame so many talented people with years of experience have either been let go or have quit due to stressful conditions. They promote fear of losing your job as a way to make you work harder. Lots of people seeing doctors due to stress related problems coming from here. Glad I got out when I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your people but I think its too late...no one buys in to your spiel anymore

    Pros

    Aegon provided educational courses at their expense. They made me Floor Marshall. They also have a state of the art Gym for all employees, benefits, profit sharing, tuition reimbursement, Awesome colleagues and Peers.

    Cons

    Layoffs and changing their employees positions and placing them in a different department without any of our request.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always have an open door policy and listen to the employees when there is something wrong and help prevent it from continuing.
