      Pros

      The personnel are nice and easy going . Ability to work from home.

      Cons

      Micro-managing Unrealistic expectations Incomplete training poor benefits outdated systems/programs low morale

      Advice to Management

      We are people not computers. It's unacceptable to expect us to sit at our desks and work 10-12 hours a day. Where is the work-life balance. Also, if your training should be staggered and not so aggressive in regards to how much to learn in a short time. Also, I found it disappointing how layoffs were done. How did it not occur to you that personnel who were able to keep their jobs would find co-working who were crying...

      I have been working at Aegon full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      *Employees (for the most part) get along and work well together. *Constant changes occurring to help the company become better for the customer

      Cons

      *Management needs some serious work - micromanagers (all of them) *Benefits could have been better *Advancement is non-existent unless you know someone (or at least that was my experience) *The announcement of the transition and the very little time employees had to process this information (when directors and their bosses knew for well over a year). *No positive feedback ("always need to work"); negative atmosphere

      Advice to Management

      Production and quality are really important factors to a company in order to be successful, but that standard for the last two years has been getting harder to obtain and is unrealistic. There's a reason for the higher turnover rate with new business reps - they are not sent a positive message for the work they do and they are constantly being scrutinized (and for something that only requires a high school degree...what...

      Pros

      Great benefits, good pay, a lot of opportunities to move in your career.

      Cons

      The company got too big, and very political. Management became all 'yes men' and the more ethical people that did what was good for the company were phased out. With downsizing year after year, management bagan playing the game to keep their jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Realize that Aegon is your paycheck and do what it takes to make it better... quit the game playing.

        I worked at Aegon full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        Decent benefits, challenging work, OK pay.

        Cons

        Layoffs, Layoffs, Layoffs. Environment is negative. Time tracking/Matrix takes away from meaningful work. Lower management is too afraid to speak up. Short staff make job stressful. Too much politics to get projects to move forward.

        Advice to Management

        Listen to employees as they do the job. Upper management is out of touch with work as they do not do the lower level jobs. Need more staff members.
