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

    Pros

    I worked at Aviva for almost 2 and 1/2 years and simply loved it! Our team was extremely balanced in skills and responsibilities, so our contribution was quite effective and recognisable.

    Cons

    We had a bit of a struggle with the Group team, specially when it came to highlight the regional and local needs as opposed to the global ones.

    Pros

    Pension contribution, good brand to have in the cv, digital investments, benefits, customers focused

    Cons

    Bad management, too many management layers, people are not willing to share, lack of team culture, very little opportunities for career progression, neverending restructuring process

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage, promote teamwork, listen, create opportunities for talents

    I have been working at Aviva full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for internal mobility, including across countries. Paris office located in a quiet suburb and CE offers a lot of great deals.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and the pressure of cost optimisation does not promote employee engagement. Also, Aviva France being part of Aviva Group, British influence is something not to be ignored.

    I have been working at Aviva full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, good employee focused approach

    Cons

    Not very progressive, might feel stuck in the profile after a while.
    The appraisal process is not transparent and it totally depends on ones relation with the manager.
