    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Aviva full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits, good pension scheme, product discount and generous share scheme. Company on the up, great leadership with the right strategy! Plenty of opportunities for those willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy as a result of the legacy of all the mergers and just the sheer size of the group. Getting better but still a major blocker to the company reaching its full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive at cutting through the fat that still exists in the company. Can always do more to reward the talent and nurture it to fulfil potential.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits - contributory pension, annual bonus, flexible benefits like buy and sell holidays. Flexible working in my area, and lots of different combinations of working hours.

    Cons

    Very much depends on individual managers of areas, so some are fantastic and others terrible, i've had good and bad experiences.

    Advice to Management

    There is still some appalling management behaviour and bullying, mainly by those who have been with the company (or its previous companies) too long and simply don't want the new culture.

    Pros

    Those that remain know what they are doing

    Cons

    Too many restructures. Outsourcing of IT and now seeing the costs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hold of SME's and listen to them.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Aviva full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment thanks to really good employees, good company culture, good value and fidelity for the employees. Leader in the industry. Fine working environment if you can limit your growth expectations and live with that.

    Cons

    Limited and unjust promotion opportunities. Weak HR and middle management. Accountability for the actions undertaken is not taken seriously. One can survive even after successive poor decision though the outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management must implement methods to evaluate the actual success of the processes and people managers.
