I worked at Regus full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Great benefits, diverse client group, many locations so you can always transfer around, the company has been and will be around for a long time. Work hours are Monday through Friday with paid holidays and weekends off. You don't have to worry about being laid off, but this comes at a price. See Cons.Cons
The company is making billions at the cost of their employees and clients.
There is an incredible amount of work to do and full time is only 37.5 hours per week. I have been here for five years and NO RAISES so get what you can when you are hired because it is all that you will get. They have three people in each location doing the work of about five people and most of the time the work will fall on one person to do the majority of the work. There are some good people who will try to help you when you get stuck but there are also those who try to make you feel dumb or stupid when you ask a question or need assistance. Those are the ones who are brown nosing and try to make themselves look good. There is definitely a click. If you are in the click you are fine, but if not then watch out.
You have to wear suits and move big heavy furniture all the time. You will also have to wear a light colored shirt which will constantly be getting dirty and or torn because you will be moving furniture and cleaning up the kitchen and offices all day long.
They use people in another country to do their internet and IT jobs and this will drive you crazy too. If you work face to face with the clients your job will be okay because they haven't figured out how to outsource that yet.
The client could be smarter and read the agreement before signing, but many don't and wind up regretting it in the end because buried terms in the agreements tack on high exit fees then the clients curse you out because of it.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Transparency. Practice transparency in dealing with your staff and clients. Tell prospective employees and clients how your business is run up front and give people full and truthfull disclosure in to how your business operates so that they can make informed decisions as to whether your culture works for them.
Regus is doing just fine financially. Your employees have access to some of the finances and know this. While the company is growing growing growing, are you aware that many of your employees are barely making ends meet? These same employees are the ones that you have taking care of your most valued assests: your locations and your clients.
Shame on you for the way you are treating them.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
