Help desk (Former Employee) –  Scarborough26 April 2017
If you are good at hiding how low you are doing and be friend with your manager, it's a good place for you.
You can only expect a promotion if you were from the same companies that your manager worked for (or family).
Pros
We laugh a lot
Cons
No help to grow

Terrible place.. Horrible Management!
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON3 April 2017
All lies and talk. All about numbers not people. You will not get a straight answer from anyone in Senior Management. Their main concern is protecting their job at the expense of everyone else. Extremely high turnover rate with many firings, then repeated hirings, then more firings. Totally pointless environment unless you are desperate for a job. Call Centre environment with that Costco feel. Big Box mentality with plenty of blame to go around for everyone. I can't wait to work elsewhere.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Pretty much everything

IT Guru (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 March 2017
Hard work is not rewarded by the new IT management replacements. The IT management here is in no way qualified to be a manager elsewhere. There's no sense of team in this place. Feels like high school. No loyalty, a lot of nepotism unless you were colleagues from the orange bank. No human contact in the IT department. No upwards mobility. Avoid this company unless you're not in IT.
Pros
music lady is climbing the ladder
Cons

Project Coordinator
QA, Process Coordinator and Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 October 2016
Aviva was a wonderful place to work and it offered its employees access to a company owned gym and parking.
Hardest part of the ob was the massive layoffs that happened in 2010.

Lack of communication
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON25 August 2016
In previous years I would have said this is a great company. This year is horrible. Claims leadership has been taken over by previous RSA staff who see everything as being done improperly. They see Aviva employees as being useless. There is no communication and staff are being worked to the bone. The benefits and pay are good but in reality, it's like working two jobs. People are lead by fear and accountability. It's each man for himself.
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
It's the new RSA, lead by fear.
