    Pros

    Aviva is becoming much better at being flexible with its employees and also recently, a much greater focus and staff wellbeing and diversity is very pleasing from a big FTSE company.

    Cons

    Very complex organisation, bureaucracy can get in the way.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the excellent work already started on wellbeing and diversity, seek specific feedback from those on the ground when deciding on changes. Often changes are made without truly understanding the impact to the customer and employees.

    Pros

    The workers, benefits and new building are really nice and up to date. It's a nice place to work. I would recommend.

    Cons

    Management is horrendous and self indulging in IT. Very sneaky. Other department heads are much easier to work with and be around.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers - promote from within

    Pros

    Good benefits package and the leadership team are trying to improve the work environment whilst supporting the staff. Good flexibility for work life balance can be achieved within some functions/teams.

    Cons

    Can feel a little disjointed between business strategy and staff completing tasks. Communication could be improved in this respect. The work environment can at times leave staff feeling isolated.

    Pros

    Company as a whole is satisfactory, good luck to candidates in term of which department they join. Believe there will be other good supportive boss in other department. Not all apples are rotten.

    Cons

    Stressful environment in term of superior and subordinate relationship. Superior’s expectations immaterial to achieve. For new joiner, although no probation but progress review every 2 weeks. They are expecting human relationship to change within 2 weeks. The question they prompted up was ‘why staffs do not approach you’. Human relationship takes time.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management as the cons arise from the specific department not company as whole

    Remuneration package can be better
