Certain departments had a good culture and environment though other departments were very much the opposite.
Seemed to be a lot of turnover. Also there seemed to be significant layoffs every few years which made it a tough environment to work in

Aviva tries to have a friendly and inclusive culture that supports its customers and staff.
Work load is high and renumeration is not competitive.

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

Flexible working, good benefits and nice people
They are big brother. They will analyse what you're doing at all times - be ready for that. They don't hesitate to fire people when they're trying to shrink a department (people who have consistently overperformed and worked so much overtime) so job security is rubbish. The amount of red tape is ludicrous - far more than their peers. Everything they do is for optics (being a publicly listed company). I would never ever work for them again; the culture is toxic and they care not a jot for their people. Anything positive they do is done so they can brag about it in the AGM/Annual Report.

Very people and customer focused. A genuine culture of wanting to drive customer improvement and create a great place to work for their people
Too governance heavy, slows down decision making
