    Pros

    If you've been there a long time, your job is pretty safe. Comp and benefits are decent for the area.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, too much focus on cost cutting, management does not communicate well, highly political environment, different geographic divisions (NL, UK, US) do not cooperate well, little advancement potential as everyone in management is protecting their own jobs

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on getting the company out of the 1990's

    I have been working at Aegon Asset Management for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you get on the right team and fit well you can do OK for yourself. Interesting work that isn't common to find in this area. Paid time off is competitive.

    Cons

    Pay is poor, although they go to great lengths to try and justify it. Little to no pay increases other than moving roles, which is increasingly difficult because the company is shrinking. Very little movement within the managerial ranks, which results in a lot of siloing and few, if any, growth opportunities for up and comers. Some teams are very stuck in the past, e.g. still keeping paper records, due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent -- sugar coating every announcement and decision only erodes your credibility.

    My Co workers in my department are great and the boss makes sure everyone's ideas are heard and passed along to senior management.

    The agility level of the organization isn't up to par. New products should have been implemented years ago. Need to be less reactionary.
