The people at Aviva are wonderful. Very welcoming and friendly. Offices are well equipped and modern. Flexible to a point as an employer and offers great benefits.
Constant change and uncertainty which can be unsettling for people. Upper management do communicate well but not enough with the workers who feel kept in the dark sometimes.1

Great benefits and discounts. amazing pension scheme. really cares about work-life balance
have to jump through a lot of loops. hard to get things completed due to red tape.

Service Desk pays overtime. If Aviva actually employ I'm told you get some benefits but people are just kept on temp contracts for 1-2 years and rarely actually employed.
Base rate is low, workers rights non-existent

Flexible working (wfh/part time) Good maternity and paternity benefits Good pension Positive and supportive culture Opportunity to learn and grow
A lot of knowledge is retained by staff who have been with the company a long time so it can be challenging to understand the relationships with business partners and the historical systems and procedures. Salaries are not very competitive and it’s demoralising to see unqualified contractors being paid substantially more.1

Company benefits are fantastic and very well rounded.
Hierarchy and beauracy can hinder progression

The company has scale and that transfers into a good benefits package for the staff. They are very good with work / life and can be very flexible. They have maintained some element of pay rise and bonus pay out over the last few years despite pressure on the business.
If you are in management / middle management you will find it is a large political organisation and it can be hard to get things done in a joined up way. Perceived under performance of the business by the city has led to several changes recently across the company which have changed the outlook for pay and benefits for all staff.

Good benefits like paternity leave of 6 months and good to work if you don't mind repetitive work. Colleagues are nice and helpful and are happy to support you where they can.
Management. They refuse to ackowledge the demands of the job that would be inconvenient for them to work around. If work piles up or it gets busy managements first response to increase pressure on the current staff to meet the workload when often times we do not have enough staff for a moderately busy day. Recent changes are making this into a more traditional call centre job which is jot what they advertise as or promise. If you have a condition or illness that is permenant or long term with doctors notes they are happy to show you off as it strengthens their image as an inclusive employer however if you just get ill frequently or even get ill 2 or 3 times a year they will hound you to no end6
