    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.

    Flexibility in work from home. Simple work.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Aviva Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home and that's it

    Cons

    Role/job descriptions not defined for all staff. Many mangers are 'Bullies' and care more for their development and advancement than yours. Both a high school and politics culture. No opportunities to work with other teams as that's seen as your stealing someone's job . Everything is based on personal relationships so if your not friends with a senior leader forget about advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for a constructive dismissal with employees and actually motivate and support them to do a better job. Stop putting responsibility of failure on employee's rather than management because without a great leader mistakes wouldn't happen.

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

    Pros

    They have work from home, that is about it really. But working on weekends does take away from this so call benefit due to the unrealistic workload.

    Cons

    I have developed anxiety just working here, and probable need to seek medical help soon if it gets worst. The blatant disrespect and two-faced managers will get in your head and let you feel like less than a person. If you are not one of the favourites forget trying to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Watch what the front line managers are doing, in their hiring and promotions practices, the method is very questionable.

    I have been working at Aviva Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Work from home options-Corporate gym membership-Ability to purchase up to 5 additional vacation days-ability to contribute to RRSP's directly from pay-ability to purchase company shares-Most managers encourage a healthy work/life balance-Free parking at Markham office-Subsidized meals in cafeteria-open concept/modern head office-diversity and inclusion initiatives in place

    Cons

    Entry level employees are paid less than industry averages-very uk centric company-promotions are given to people in USA/UK/Europe before canadian employees-lack of transparency when decisions are made that directly affect you-they aim to "kill complexity" but the company has a lot of complexities in place-bonuses are based on what managers think you deserve

    Advice to Management

    Promote your Canadian employees before seeking people in other countries.

    Cons

    Where do I start... I’m original RBC and Aviva does not compare to RBC in any way. They expect you to do more with less. Over worked and under paid!!
