    I worked at Aviva as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance, with flexitime. Nice sociable people. Well subsidised canteen. And encourages team events, work events etc very well.

    Cons

    Very big so can feel anonymous. Work can be boring, repetitive and routine (probably because of the department I worked in though)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage some Learning/Career Progression/Courses for the staff as it can be easy just to work like a lemming in that environment when you have routine tasks. And not learning anything new becomes boring very fast. Good market presence, of which a lot of can be attributed to the management I think.
