Culture of the city where this opportunity existed was very restrictive to alternate races. This caused many subtle issues of "Staying in one's place" whenever duties relating to management of the common race was attempted.
Opportunity to expose people to different culture
Company expectations of alternative races often conflicted with managerial responsibilities.

While a bit top heavy and a bit too conservative (benchmark investing in many regards), a good place to work.. with a select few people who are complete geniuses and were an absolute thrill to work with
I have had experience with microfiche and scanning. I was accurate when putting in amount of checks. I learned how to work in a team and scanning. The management treated us good. My coworkers were sometimes team players sometimes not. The hardest is no advancement. The most enjoyable was learning new technology.
When first starting there I copied microfiche for different departments for Annuities. I learned to scan and convert microfiche to computer images. The supervisors in the beginning were good. Then they outsourced our department. I was ready to move on after 14 years to gain new skills. There was no advancement. Sometimes the hardest part is when coworkers didn't work as a team. Is learning and I learned a lot of technology.
Learned lot of skills, good people, and could take classes about life insurance.

I really like working for Aviva. When Aviva was bought out by Athene they eliminated 750.00 life insurance jobs. I was very saddened when they released us. I am happy they gave us a great package to stay on.

Company Insurance Agent, Curraheen (Former Employee) – Cork, C – February 12, 2015
Intense work environment due to the hard nature of dealing with customers particular and varied health concerns. Often having to give out difficult information to customers in regards to their health cover. Learned valuable skills in regards being able to deal with stressful situations and also being able to retain large product knowledge from memory. Co-workers in this line of work are key and help you deal with the day to day pressures. They added a support network not only with helping with difficult queries but also during the general workday. The hardest part of the job was having to deny someone cover on a policy due to to whatever reason it may have been. This could often be not only mentally draining but emotionally as well. The ability to leave this behind once the working day is done was a valuable skill I was able to obtain.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Des Monies Iowa – February 4, 2015
My last job was a very fast pace of office work and the best part of the job was you learned something new everyday. The hardest part of the job was having enough employees to meet the number of calls we took per day. Working in such a fast pace environment really made the time go by quickly and the phone calls always made it fun to meet and talk to new people from around the world.
getting to know people from around the world.
not enugh employees sometimes to handle the call volume

MD F.A.A.P (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 23, 2014
Prepare rooms for the day, get the lab ready for the day to run smoothly. I learned how to manage patient flow, communication and team work are essential. The employees at the practice are great and easy to work with. I can't think of any part that was hard I just see it as a challenge. The most enjoyable part is caring for the children and finding ways to show them that we are here to help them.
Able to take my daughters to the pediatrician at where I was working.
Having short lunches and patients walking in minutes before we would go to lunch.
