No work life balance in underwriting, way too much red tape, morale is low, people are swamped and are waiting to get a package or looking for other jobs. New management has ruined what used to be a good place to work. If you miss even one little detail you get a ‘breach’ on your performance review and it impacts your bonus and raise. Do not work here unless you’re desperate and need a place to work at till something better comes along. No on boarding plan, no real direction, bad systems, too much pressure and management has no idea what underwriters need to be successful.
Pros
Good coworkers, benefits are decent
Cons
Long hours, tedious processes, low morale

Worst company to work for. They will push you and add to your workload without compensation or a thank you. Management makes promises but never delivers. If you are not part of the A group, you are disregard.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Favoritism. Management are horrible to anyone not part of their golden group.

Management does not care about their employees. If you speak up you are penalized. Your concerns are not taken seriously. Management often gossips with other employees about their staff. It is a toxic working environment.

I am glad to be a part of Aviva Canada as it has given me very good working experience. Salaries can be a bit higher (if I compare with others in the same industry) but work culture and personal growth is surely there if you work hard and give your best. Aviva recognizes the effort and work towards employees well being.

Management always asks for ideas and feedback from their stuff on the best work practices and procedures. Managers are very supportive. The corporate culture of the company is great. They provide career advancement to every employees.

Aviva is a great place and can be a stepping stone for your career. You need to be consistent with your work and should remain in constant touch with your manager. As part of procurement team, there is a lot you have to do as per your team goals and focus highly on developing relationships with your internal stakeholders regularly.

A challenging environment continually in a state of flux. Sorry, is this an essay? I have no reason why Indeed forces me to do a review. This is a ridiculous waste of my time

The building in Markham is far but it is new. The surrounding area has very little to offer by way of alternative food places and the cafeteria, while subsidized, is just meh.

Very bad management, HR and upper management. Too much favouritism shown to "moles" on whom they thrive, yet ignoring huge errors of Moles. Very very poor starting salaries despite experience and industry recognized credentials. Management interferes with your job advancement or moving within the company to a different department.

Can’t seem to retain talented staff as there is no opportunity for management roles from within. Constantly hiring managers from outside, who either are not suitable as people managers nor are they technical ! Middle management is the biggest fall down.
Pros
Vacation & work/life balance.
Cons
Recognize talent from within to assist employees to move towards management roles.

Rampant with corporate meddling and decisions made by people who have never been on the front line. Corporate management under constant turnover with each new “leadership team” wanting to install “their vision” and they each break the wheel just in hopes they can claim they were the one that fixed it. Employees routinely told “if you don’t like it , then Subway is hiring”

Nice place, long hours. Hardest part of the job was the support provided to multiple project managers. Interesting company though. Need to improve structure.

Disgracefully managed practice. Lead counsel has good intentions however the person overseeing supervisors and staff is biaised with her staff, does not respond to workplace complaints, is negligent in reporting incidents to upper HR staff, has no HR training herself let alone people skills. If an effective manager could be put in place that listens to supervisors, feedback and staff concerns this could be a positive work environment rather a high school and toxic environment.

The job was stressful but at the end of the day, all team members rejoiced success and output. The work was never a burden, despite tight deadlines, because team work was great
