    Pros

    The people, your team will support you throughout everything. Some departments are quite flexible in terms of how/where and when you work but this is not consistent. There is a fantastically subsidised canteen.

    Cons

    It is a large company with no real direction or idea what's going on. It's very manager heavy and it takes (often literally) years to get changes put in place. There is a horrible culture of not making the most of the skills within the business, learning and development isn't great unless you work on the phones, and there has been a heavy focus on cost-cutting due to bad direction from management, so redundancies and a general feeling of precariousness now loom what was once a very family-feel office.

    Advice to Management

    You need to change. Stop treating your employees like children, if we're doing badly then say it and make an action plan of how to change it. Where mistakes have been made we need those responsible to fall on their sword and learn from them. Your employees are your greatest asset and they already work, often below their benchmark salaries, for you. They want to see the company succeed but ironically it feels as though the management doesn't really care.

    I have been working at Ageas (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Good location
    Great people
    Catering facilities excellent
    Used to care about staff, i hope this returns!

    Cons

    Management do NOT listen, too many layers! Why have a director then a head of dept, then a dept manger?!
    Too many people dont know what they are doing yet seem to get the opportunities when moving role or progressing!
    Park and ride is a joke and car parking is not fairly allocated
    Give £5k to the best employees each year but still make others redundant!
    IT dept is the worst i have ever experienced, team leader is clueless!

    Advice to Management

    When you are told how things are on the shop floor then LISTEN! You dont truly know what is going on and need the staff at lower levels to keep you in the loop! And DO NOT interfere with recruitment decisions which then backfire "i told you so" springs to mind!
