    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aviva Canada full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hard to say because everyone is treated differently. Some work from home

    Cons

    Always reorganizing, very high turnover, low employee satisfaction, managers either harass/bully or allow employees to be harassed/bullied. So much backstabbing as leaders try to build their territory. It's been a mess for years with no sign of improvement. HR is complicit with treating employees poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Oh geez...where to start. The core seems to be rotten. Starting to follow Canadian employment law and HR standards would be a good start.
