    RM give their employees a great level of development, training and cross sector experience, but tend to fail customers.

    I have been working at RM Education full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work life balance at RM is generally very good, and the management are keen to ensure sufficient staffing and policies are in place to ensure workloads are reasonable.
    The training for graduates at RM is exceptional, and they invest heavily in the programme to continue your professional development.
    Rm pay very well to entry level graduates, and will instantly treat you with respect, and a huge level of responsibility from the word go.

    Cons

    Internally RM staff are almost so self absorbed into the company that they are unaware of the real situation in the market - the company has consistently delivered bad service to schools and has built a terrible reputation over the years, yet there seems to be minimal effort on behalf of the product and internal staff to rectify this problem.
    The office culture is very cliquey, and you have to be a certain type of person to fit in well at RM, generally soft, willing to do anything they say, and also adept at believing the companies own hype despite the market trends and sliding profits suggesting otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to completely overhaul how the company works and they need to make staff aware of the urgency of the weak situation they are in. They need to make everyone know that competitors are faster, more agile, deliver better service, and better value than they do.
