Not great.. Analyst (Former Employee) – Norwich, Norfolk – 21 February 2018 My manager was not at all supportive. Plus they were biased towards old employees. Not a great place to work with. Work life balance is not respected at all. Was this review helpful? Yes No Report Good company with a reliable income Claims Handler (Current Employee) – Norwich, Norfolk – 29 January 2018 Aviva is a good company to work for and a lovely working environment. However, I found that there wasn’t fair treatment regarding progression and development. This seemed to be based on who you know. In a large company it can seem as though you are just a number on a payroll.
Good pension schemes and staff vouchers
Wages are low and not clear how to meet the targets for higher pay increase

Yes No Report Enjoyable place to work Personal Incident Manager (Former Employee) – Southend – 18 January 2018 There was a vast array of personalities at Aviva in Southend which made it a great place to work. They took me straight off of a building site and opened my eyes to office life which I will always be grateful for. I learned so much in my 6plus years at Aviva, from how offices function to general insurance and insurance policies.
