    Pros

    Growing company
    Cutting edge innovation
    Nice new West Des Moines location

    Cons

    Reorganized Life New business Department where underwiriter reports to Non-underwriting managers.
    Managers, Directors, VPs making decisions with no prior experience and not aware of potential fall-out.
    Disssatisfaction at most job levels. Individual contributers do not feel like management cares or sees the big picture anymore.
    Managers that are not seen or respected as leaders due to incompetence.
    Commmincation is very poor.
    Shift from quality underwriting decisions that estabilished Aviva as a formatable competitor to widget environment where cranking out underwriting desions is first and quality is last. This is not in the best interst of our customer and will only serve to reverse the strides we have made in the BGA market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaulate insurance operations and strategy to see if it fits with the high level corporate objectives. Aviva became better known due to collaboration from satisfied, happy, respected employees who were proud to be part of a growing, leading edge company. Pay attention to your employee surveys (recommend you not wait until fall to do another one as talented people will not wait that long). Weed out the individuals who are just "managing" but not "leading."

    I worked at Aviva

    Pros

    They're growing, and fast, especially in IT. They're hiring a lot of people right now, and I believe with their growth rate, there will be a lot of opportunity to move up as you become more senior over your peers.

    Cons

    There seems to be some disconnect with senior management, but otherwise managers are helpful, and let you balance your work with your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the jokes at work was the lack of training. I've never gone into a job where there was almost no training program what-so-ever. Coworkers were helpful, but for a company of this size, I was blown away by the lack of on-boarding.
