    Pros

    International company with plenty of opportunity. Good core values, good benefits, bonus plan, good leaders.

    Cons

    It's a VERY large company, which I happen to like. But if you prefer a small-company feel, this would not be the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the open communication, which is admirable considering the size of the company and the challenges of keeping everyone informed about the company vision, strategy, and goals.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the talented people I worked with

    Cons

    AEGON used to be a great company to work for. I stress "used to" because they have really changed over the past years and they simply do not care about their employees anymore. Their attitude is if you don't like it, go somewhere else. Their motto used to be "respect people, make money, and have fun." Today it's only about making money! They have cut most all employee incentives and their benefit contributions (healthcare, etc.) are extremely poor! Constant restructuring, layoffs and letting good people go when they see an opportunity to save money with no consideration to tenure, hard work and dedication given to the company. Absolutely horrible management! Their idea is to now outsource as much as possible. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere as there are much better companies and opportunities out there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold onto the talent you have and care more about your employees

    Remote management of local staff resulting in impersonal relationships with remote managers.

    I worked at Aegon USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with are great

    Cons

    Senior Management does not make much of an effort to identify top performers. Promotions are based on years of service and tenure with the company without regard for competency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to keep up with the growing competition the company will need to put more emphasis on finding and keeping top talent, otherwise, they will continue to attract "lifers" who are just there to collect a pay check.
