    Pros

    Ability to move into a field and learn it quickly, insurance has a lot of different parts and this company encourages internal recruitment. There is also a good learning policy.

    Cons

    Restrictive on pay, the director of the company's words at the time were that you can't expect to keep doing the same job and get paid more, in hindsight this advice is why I left, but got the experience i needed there.


  6. A nice place to work. Friendly towards newcomers and with growth possibilities.

    Mostly positive experience with Ageas, busy and occasionally they can appear disorganised.

    Pros

    The people are friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    It's in constant flux, no sooner have they introduced a system or process, they are redesigning it.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a firm footing for employees; a core vision that everyone feels part of and can contribute too.

    Pros

    - Competitive salary and excellent benefits with huge number of holidays
    - Strong interference/support of employee unions/council, thus management can't just do whatever they want (although 'ways-around' can always be created)
     - If you start - in most cases - you can easily complete your work life at at the age of 65 (is that's what you want)

    Cons

    - Every little thing is structured, processed, controlled. No room for personal initiative. No risk taking. You spend your days in endless, stupid meetings. You'd die in tears if you are a performance and result oriented person.
    - It's not your competency or talents which count but they years of service within the bank. I mean it. So, if there is one job and 2 internal candidates (one of them a fully competent person with perfect skills but in the company only for a few years and the other one less competent but in the company for 20 years) they go for the second one.
    - Nobody cares for competitiveness or hard working or efficiency. The whole system is based on risk-free, slow-motion culture.
    - No unity, no team feeling. Everybody walks around like a lonely fish in the ocean.
    - Full of incompetent people. Hundreds of them. But they stay because they are there in the last 20-30 years. Some even do not know how to write an email or use Excel, Word...
    - Only a few people at the top- CEO direct reports- know where they are going, the rest....either busy with preparing colourful presentations to cascade stories to their direct reports or at the coffee machine.

    Avoid ! ( if you are not only looking for a job but for a career)

    Advice to Management

    You hire competitive people and let them die in your organisation, because your working culture is not for performance,result oriented people.
    You must find ways to keep the spirit high or just hire average people with no ambition.
