    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Aviva full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, even the coffee machine was rubbish

    Cons

    Populated by white middle aged, middle class blokes devising products nobody wants to buy with unsustainable commission levels to support greedy distribution channels

    Advice to Management

    People who get a senior level job with Aviva sigh with relief they will never have to put in a hard day of graft ever again.
