    Pros

    Benefits package is very good, compared to other organisations.
    Good employee-oriented activities organised.

    Cons

    Biased treatment from bosses, across departments. Some employees ger more favored for whatever reasons. Favoritism is very rampant.
    Lack of integrity from bosses and SM.
    People who are favored by bosses, often bring in friends of their own, skipping proper interview processes.

    Advice to Management

    Employ people properly.
    Get in touch with the ground more.
    Stop practising favoritism.

    Pros

    Holiday package and flexible working options - good.
    Development opportunities numerous in volume (but see Cons)
    (Leased) office building was pleasant enough

    Cons

    Management are uninspiring (or downright incompetent)
    Salary and bonus are atrocious - well under market rate and have no bearing on performance of the unit, or indeed the company (hence the pay-rise "pot" remaining at 2% for the last three years, despite company profit increasing YOY)
    Aviva is defined by knee-jerk reactions. Nothing is thought through, so staff are forced to change focus from one minute to the next, be it on administrating X, or preventing Y. Nothing is ever maintained or followed-through to completion.

    Advice to Management

    Just for one year, try focusing on what would make things better for the employees. Aviva would still function without the Hofs, Dofs, MDs et al, but without underwriters, servicers, risk advisors, customer service reps, there would be nothing. Try giving out salary awards and bonuses that reflect just how much the staff have lined your pockets.
