I worked here as a temp and I loved meeting the team and the management. They were all so welcoming and lived it. The manager Ian was fantastic we all felt welcomed and as an equal and felt valued.

Pros

The management are lovely lunches were given paid for what you work and treated like and equal

Cons

Pay isn't great

Claims Handler

Staff are friendly and supportive. There is a lot of training to cover but it’s very interesting. The office is in a convenient location and working hours are very sociable. There is material and learning catalogues which can be done at home but Home study is not paid. Perhaps LV could consider x amount of time and £ Pay by adding this as an additional supplement to salary for the future.

Pros

Sociable Working Hours/Free Hot Drinks/Other Benefits

Cons

Low Pay/Also Longer training Period would be an advantage

Worst management, don’t care for mental health

I recently stopped working at LV at the beginning it was good but after the first year everything went down hill VERY fast, management were horrible, never cared for mental health or personal situations, always put the ‘customer’ first but never cared for their own staffs input or feelings. Management could never be wrong and were too head strong to want to listen. No on site parking unless you’ve worked there for since the building was made so you may as well start walking now. Forced to do a survey that’s pointless as even when you do it seniors still fail you on audits when you don’t on the rear occasion even if you’ve asked that broker before. Role progression isn’t easy at all, even when you ask for it it’s brushed under the carpet, half the role progression is just general day work but is never signed off so progress takes ages! Overall just a horrible environment to work in!

Pros

Going home/ Wage

Cons

Management/ No Parking

Avoid at all costs

LV is by FAR the worst company I have ever had the displeasure of working for. The current managers are the absolute worst. They don’t care about you just themselves push you to work harder to make them look good to their managers. They say they are an advocate for mental health but in reality they couldn’t care less. They train up “mental health” first aiders but choose the ones that are matey matey with the managers so no doubt your personal mental health issues would be on full blast. Get your anti depressants at the ready because you will need them even after a week in this place. The office is filthy and the cleaners are known for using the same cloth as they wipe down the toilet bowls with. Absolutely no progression opportunities what so ever despite being promised so in the interview. The only benefit is you will meet the odd couple of really amazing people but unfortunately they are in the same sinking boat as you and hate their jobs too. I’d be surprised if LV have enough staff to carry them through Christmas. You will just be another number to bring the call volumes down. AVOID AVOID AVOID

Pros

Ok pay

Cons

Absolutely nothing else

Stay Away

been there since 2015 , so 5 Years there and what a waste of time. Promises of progression, when in fact you have to have the right face to fit the mould, when one call ends, you get 5-10 seconds before your next call comes in, if there is even a couple of seconds you’re not taking calls they’re onto you like you’ve murdered the management teams families. You will be treat like a barcode, just another box ticker, they won’t care about you, they just care about how many calls you take.They say it’s not a target driven job, however if you don’t meet the targets they set for calls and timings then you’re in trouble, got personal life issues outside of work? don’t expect them to care or accommodate you. At first it’s sold as a lovely place to work with a great team ethos and good spirit.. don’t be fooled like many of us have and will be. it’s a corporate beast who rip every customer off just like any other insurance company, and treat their staff even worse, the team leaders don’t have a care, usually found in the break room avoiding their teams , because they aren’t the ones taking calls, when customers call and scream at you for their prices, all you can say is the few excuses that’s made up for you to respond with. if you care about your mental health or wellbeing, stay away from LV.

Pros

leaving

Cons

LV as a whole.

Worst company to work for ever!

the worst ever company to ever work for, i started in january 2020 and 2 months in we had to work from home due to corona virus. I was given used damaged and dirty equipment to work with, which i complained about many times but it fell on deaf ears each time. I was given a disciplinary for not meeting my targets. WORST EVER PLACE TO WORK STAY AWAY IF YOU WANT YOUR MENTAL HEALTH TO STAY INTACT.

Pros

Salary benefits

Cons

Slave work

Avoid like the plauge!!!!

This is without a doubt the worst place I have ever worked! The abuse you receive on the daily by stupid and ignorant customers who cannot grasp how insurance works, outweigh any kind of benefits the job offers! Before working here I had relatively good mental health, as soon as I started I became suicidal and had the worst anxiety about going to work! If you have any value for your well-being, avoid at all costs!!!!!

Pros

Pay is okay

Cons

Absolutely everything eose

All things considered it’s a great place to work

There are issues over payment for certain jobs but if you work hard and have abilities then you can progress well. The 3rd Party route is best route for progression and payment but the AD route is more fun

Pros

Good fun with challenges and extras worth the pay

Cons

Maybe not the best payer but all other parts of the work make up for it

Great place to work!

Culture is very important in a successful business and LV= has it in abundance. Management and Senior leaders are really engaged. A company that embraces talent and diversity.

Overall a good place of employment

But unfortunately in my circumstances was made redundant due to the merge of LV and Alliance. Good training and become knowledgeable of commercial and home insurance. A place to progress in the company

Dreadful Place to work.

When you arrive at work there is a cacophony of noise. Team leaders are on the whole very unhelpful. I would love to name and shame but I shall remain professional. On one occasion I was told to F OFF and find someone else to help me. It is very much a case of just get on with it. To be fair the training is good but hardly sets you up for the challenge ahead. Glad I left.

Awful

Working with LV was both physically and mentally draining. There was absolutely NO chance of socialising (you weren’t always on a break with people you worked with), the work to social life balance wasn’t great so having no time to socialise made me feel like a robot, you turn up, repeat more or less the same conversations the customers then go home.

Great company

Great training and coaching. LV= have high standards and actually care about their employees. Happy to continuously recommend LV= for its products and as a career, even after I’ve left, as was such a great company to work for! Only left for a complete career change but stayed 4 years longer than planned as felt was too good to leave and kept progressing!

Pros

Care about employees, amazing customer service which makes you feel proud to work for them, great salary for the job roles.

Cons

Progression is different in certain offices round the country.

A lot of uncertainty

Very much a "face fits" culture. A lot of redundancies and uncertainty since general insurance was taken over. Lack of decent management at lower levels.

Very advanced approach to people management

LV is a company which promotes the importance of it's staff however unlike a lot of companies who 'promote and advertise' these values, LV really does forfill on them.

The odd rouge menber of middle mangement

Work you like machines

Make a lot of progression promies when you begin and sell the LV= perfect dream but in reality the chances of progression are extremly slim. The calls are as soon as you say goodbye you say hello to the next caller
