What is health insurance like at Standard Life Aberdeen?

Pros

The company offers great healthcare benefits

Cons

Company culture has diluted through too many acquisitions and mergers. Mergers are never handled smoothly. Management is poor at communicating leaving employees extremely uncertain and nervous. Corporate structure is far too flat and makes it nearly impossible to move up in the ranks unless someone from the company leaves and opens up a spot. Extremely below market salaries. They say they invest in their employees but they really don't and only invest in other companies. Far too UK-centric. Systems and technologies are 10 years behind other companies.

How are the career development opportunities at Standard Life Aberdeen?

Pros

Work life balance is amazing Good pension

Cons

Limited career opportunities Company growth outlook poor Senior management poor/no decision making Literally zero strategy post merger

Advice to Management

Need to be way more transparent with what's happening. Post merger there's no direction no strategy and it's ultimately depressing. Two completely different cultures combined and senior management are nowhere to be seen. Couple of emails sent weekly explaining fluffy stuff is not sufficient.
