      Neglects their home grown talent.

      Nov 21, 2021 - Senior Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible working albeit diluted recently by the mandatory 3 days a week in the office. Some really caring people and generally a supportive culture promoting openness on mental health issues. Good benefits such as holidays and other perks.

      Cons

      A lot of talk about developing talent and some commendable talent development programmes but when it comes down to it, new managers to Aviva completely underestimate the value of the existing talent pool and as such do not promote internally. Trust your talent and your people. Get your new senior leadership to trust the people that have been identified as talent before their time and work to build their career progression. That’s how loyalty is built. Advise to new senior leadership: Do not dismiss these people just because they were in Aviva before you joined. They can become your biggest ally if you take time to get to know them.
