    Nice people I work with.

    Cons

    No way one can advance in there and don't count on the promotion of any kind. You need to move out to do so. Perhaps that is why so many people leave.

    Advice to Management

    "Stay Far Away"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Aviva Canada

    Pros

    There are no pros. Any benefit is not worth it.

    Cons

    Managers are bullies if they don't like you. If you are a pet you will get whatever you want. Work from home? Some people don't even ever have to come into the office. Others have to be there 5 days a week. They pick who gets bonuses. If you are not liked your raise and bonus if any is just embarrassing and it's thrown in your face. I'm not sure how a big company gets away with the bullying and harrassing. If you complain to your manager who is a bully too, they ask you to go to the bully? How does that work? Inclusion? Sure. Does nobody read these reviews? Because nothing is done about it and all the reviews seem to be the same. Hundreds of people have suffered bullying at the hands of their managers and other employees. Where is HR? These managers need to be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the front line employees. Just try it. You will see who the terrible managers and VP's are. They are the worst.
