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

    Pros

    - Great location of offices
    - Hardworking, astute members of staff
    - Massive company with many aspects to the business
    - Decent opportunities for promotion
    - A bit of a social scene once you track it down

    Cons

    - A bit of a lifeless atmosphere in the office once everyone has their heads down. But I suppose that is inherent within such an industry.

    I worked at Aviva Investors full-time

    Pros

    Some people are talented, they usually quickly leave. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Many layers of fat. Mediocre hiring skills. Terrible handling of the restructuring process which saw 20% of staff being laid out. Many mediocre people hiding and not being found out. Some breaches of compliance not being reported. Organisation need to either be wound down or completely overhauled from top to bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and get new people.
