    I have been working at Aviva full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always allowing you to learn new skills and respect your opinions.

    Cons

    Aviva sold out to Athene so the last year was stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Always be open and honest with your employees. It goes a long way in building trust.

    I worked at Aviva as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LEEDs Green company, wonderful new headquarters, amazing staff. Everyone I worked with was so nice, and helpful. The building was really nice with lots of windows. The executives has interior offices, because they believe that the majority of the staff deserves to be near the windows. Every desk was ergonomic and could be raised or lowered with the touch of a button.

    Cons

    The parking lot was not covered, and in Iowa winters, and summers, was not very pleasant. Sometimes the cafeteria would get crowded, since the food serving space was not very big. I would have liked to have seen more varieties of things to eat.

    Pros

    The company is going in the right direction for the most part.

    Cons

    I am looking for a new job because they will pay me more if I leave then come back as a new hire.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the HR policies are undermining management's efforts in retaining the best people.

    Pros

    Great work life balance experience. Great culture that one can experience. Understanding and kind CEO and senior leader team which understands their employee

    Cons

    To be honest, I couldn't think about anything negative about Aviva Singapore. They care a lot for their employee and that makes themselves a good employer!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and with good management, I believe that all the employees will continue working hard and fighting hard for Aviva.

    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.
