    I worked at Aegon full-time

    Pros

    They were fairly agile and had good employee benefits.

    Cons

    They didn't realistically plan a large systems integration and caused massive customer service issues.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Aegon full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Excellent pay and progression model within the EB Contact Centre. Targets are all achievable. Great environment to work in with a friendly culture. Management are friendly and supportive. Lots of incentives to encourage pushing for certain targets.

      Cons

      Not much leeway with flex time, but closing time is 5:30pm. Not too late. EB is kind of a forgotten area within Aegon as they focus on the new Platform.

      Advice to Management

      EB are being outsourced to Atos. Atos will be investing in the area and people. Let us improve the systems and watch us fly.

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

      Pros

      Reasonable and flexible hours Catering Team Members Culture Job Satisfaction Development To be honest, looking at some of the previous reviews, I had wondered if it was the same company being described. I suppose it must be down to which are you work in. The pros above relate to working in investments where you get exam support, autonomy, come and go with regards to hours: you stack them up when project deadlines...

      Cons

      Office location isn't great but that's really it.

      Advice to Management

      More platform investment would seem to be the main thing and keep communicating.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cluj-Napoca

      I worked at Aegon full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good employer, takes care of its employees, good work-life balance, most people are nice and professional (there are also exceptions,some in management payer), things are done in a professional way.

      Cons

      Very slow process of decision making, frustrating sometimes. No promotion opportunities, quite flat organisation, the managers are there for ages with no intention to leave so if you want to evlove ast some point you are blocked.

        I have been working at Aegon full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Good people to work with, and very good benefits as well as bonus pay. On site canteen is great.

        Cons

        Office politics get in the way of achieving good results and doing the right thing from the start. People are too concerned with ticking boxes.

        Advice to Management

        Look at the bigger picture, maybe taking a little longer at the start to achieve a really good result is better than rushing through something and spending more time trying to fix it.
