Aegon ~ home of micromanagement and Dilbert like management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsHard working people & benefits. Many people have worked with this company for a number of years, meaning that they know exaclty what it takes to get the job done. There are wonderful resources at this company. Some people are very well rounded and would do anything to ensure the work is done proplerly.

ConsToo many re-orgs, company is unstable. In the re-orgs, people get put into management positions they dont deserve and are unqualified to perform. Bonus structures are unfair because people at same levels dont get bonus based on what site they are at. Teams that do the same thing are not under the same manager, doesnt make sense. No one can tell you what to do to get a promotion or something other than a 3% increase. You get rated a "3 satisfactory" no matter what you do and a standard 3% or less salary increase is all youre ever going to get. Many managers dont come to work on a regular basis ~ working from home and sick all the time. Some managers dont follow ethical standards. The recent re-org between ADMS and AFP is a disaster. AFP to ADMS is like a child playing patty cake to a college graduate specializing in work efficiency. Weak and inexperienced management structure made it demotivating.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo something about the people who have been put into management positions! So many have no training that the entire management structure is WEAK! Once it is apparent that a manager is ineffective, they should be put in charge of something else. Its so apparent to the worker bees which managers are inefficient, and that brings into question the higher ups decision making ability. All of the people under weak management are looking for the day that something changes and they dont need to answer stupid questions anymore. How can a weak manager provide instuction to his direct reports? He cant!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
