    I have been working at Aviva full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Equal parental leave, flex working, tech, wellbeing, good progression

    Cons

    Corporate management team is an old boys club - the department has been stagnant for far too long and positive change is always talked about but never acted on.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure from the top down. Put the people on the ground doing all the work to the top of your priority list rather than the bottom.

    I worked at Aviva full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible work, interesting and not a hard job. Employee wellbeing is generally good.

    Cons

    Ended up being dismissed after ongoing mental and physical health issues with were unavoidable and unfortunate. Understand the decision from the companies side, however, and no hard feelings. My issues with Aviva mainly started after leaving. My 4 weeks notice pay (minus holidays and overpayment from last month of employment) was calculated as 1 weeks pay on an incorrect 0T tax code, meaning I've been taxed way too... much on it and paid student loan, which I am nowhere near the threshold for. Called SLC, HMRC and emailed Aviva multiple times. Looks like nothing can be done until after the current tax year meaning I'm out of pocket by hundreds for the next 10 months until can apply for a rebate and then wait for it to be processed and paid. I cant see any reason that 4 weeks notice would be paid as 1 weeks pay, except for malicious purposes.
