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

    Pros

    Probably fine if you live in CR

    Cons

    Its probably a great place to work if you live in Cedar Rapids and don’t want to move. I mean — where else are you going to go? They seem to take care of the yokels ahead of anyone from out of town. They probably don’t want to run into someone they fired at the grocery store or the corn shuckin’. That’s the only explanation for some folks maintaining their employment with MD titles. The investment management is excellent, I have to say. And the portfolio management are good people (for the most part). Business / senior management is absolute chaos. I had FOUR bosses in 12 months and was on my way to a FIFTH in less than 2 years before I left the company. The company went two years without a CEO, and has gone though two heads of distribution in just 18 months. Now they have senior management with from Janus and Calamos, who aren’t vaguely interested in living in CR and are making people move to Chicago. I can’t say I blame them, but I do wish them luck with that.
