    I worked at Aviva Investors North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a great time-off policy, as well as a great CEO and leadership structure. Everyone works together and it is not a cut throat environment.

    Cons

    The company is in a large period of change, and job roles and leadership have been changing recently. This isn't necessarily bad, but it is different.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

  5. "Strategic Changes: One Too Many"

    Pros

    The work environment in the Des Moines office was very productive and supportive; not sure how things changed after the company was bought by Athene.

    Cons

    Aviva Investors made too many strategic changes every year -- driven by the head office in London. Hopefully, this is no longer a nagging issue.

    Advice to Management

    Do not interfere too much at every step. There is no need for strategic changes every year. Perhaps a strategic change should be done no more frequently than every 5 years.
