No opinion of CEO

I worked at Aviva as an intern (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 Management

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.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Benefits package still attractive, so although pension scheme has moved to defined benefits the employer contribution is likely to be unmatched in the market. Still gives annual bonus (personal and company performance based). Good internal training courses, and usually a good commitment to professional development. Good commitment to social responsibility programmes.

    Cons

    Constant restructures (10 weeks between the last two), ergo little job security and negative impact on atmosphere/morale. A lot of good talent now left company in last 12 months. Annual share award all but disappeared. Very short-termist view with regards to new initiatives and change investment. Declining staff satisfaction scores.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the end of your nose, or be left behind in the next 24 months. Your staff are your greatest asset, so treat them as such.
