    I have been working at Aegon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On site parking, canteen, staff generally nice, good training at the beginning

    Cons

    Wages are shockingly low, when i have asked about a wage rise due to my experience within Aegon and the industry as a whole i was told "theres nothing we can do". When they said that they meant it. My manager closed the book on it there and then, HR werent even asked the question. Everything is micromanaged to insane levels. There is very much a blame culture within the platform. They have dealt with lockdown pretty well i would say. Although, completing the work alone in my home has certainly made me realise i do not have much of a future within this business. If you join, make sure you get in a management clique asap.

    I worked at Aegon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    What made my job enjoyable were the people I worked with.

    Cons

    It was very disorganised in terms of managing employees and there were a lot of times where myself and my colleagues were left in the dark about certain new aspects of the business.

    I worked at Aegon for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy job, good relationship with my colleagues

    Cons

    I was promised a permanent contract after 3 months of employment. Then I was told that I needed 3 months of good stats. Then I was told I needed 3 consequent months of good stats. After I had 3 months of good stats, I was told that because I was off sick 4 times, I wouldn't become permanent or have an contract extension. They knew I had some serious health issues, but they didn't quite care. The company is in shambles, systems don't work properly, the online platform too. This causes a toxic working environment and lots of complaining between employees. There's been instances where line managers have been rude and sometimes showed inappropriate behavior towards women employees. There have been more people sacked for being off sick and other because of negative attitude. The company's policy doesn't make any sense at all. No career opportunities really. Managers just wandering aimlessly most of the day with their laptops, attending "meetings" and not supportive at all. A joke of a company.
