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

    Pros

    Some staff are helpful and some staff take ownership for their work.

    Cons

    There are usually 2/3 critical IT failures every day. Whenever they have a system update, either you or the customers lose access to their website. Customers are often left hanging, as any problems that get reported just disappear into the aether. Very little responsibility is taken by colleagues when they’ve made a mistake. You end up taking heat from all sides for trying to help customers who have been let down by people who are supposed to be doing the same job you are. You’re not allowed to make calls out, so you can’t promise to call customers back, for an update or to answer a question they have that isn’t covered by their FAQ, and you’re not trusted to manage your own time, everything is resourced by someone else - so you’re not learning any new skills or good working practices because you’re not given the opportunity.
