    I worked at Anglian Home Improvements (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people within the company are really nice to work with

    Cons

    The protocols around payment make it extremely difficult to actually get the money you've spent your time earning.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to ask people to go out canvassing, at least be upfront about the fact they are unlikely to get much/any money. Alternatively, change your protocols.

    I worked at Anglian Home Improvements full-time

    Pros

    Not a good company to do any work for. Managers keep the best leads for them and their friends. Have heard of cases where managers have actually cancelled sales made by salesmen and then re did contract for themselves, so that they earned the comission.

    Cons

    Very corrupt company to work for on a self employed basis, and you may as well send a cheque for £2000 than waste your time, because that is what it will cost you over 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out your corrupt self employed sales management teams before you even consider listing the business on the stock market.

    I have been working at Anglian Home Improvements full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a pleasure working with some of my colleagues who i see as family.

    Cons

    Management lie to you about opportunities for progression to keep you in the position your in. The pay doesnt reflect the amount of responsibilities that are put on you. Admin are made responsible for managers duties and not rewarded or even thanked for works achieved. You are encouraged to lie to exsisting customers who have remedial works outstanding in order to achieve revenue targets. Managers falsify figures to achieve revenue targets. There is little to no training and you are expected to just get on with it and learn yourself. The office conditions are appalling and in some cases not deemed a safe working environment. HR are more like counselling and are there to just listen and not action. Field managers are paid double what admin are and are either less experienced or just down right lazy and do the very minimum. If you are hard worker, good at your job and very helpful then you will just get took advantage of. Field managers are not employed on experience but employed on how well they know senior management. Management speak to admin like crap and laugh when its witnessed to make it look acceptable. Admin are not warned or punished when they speak to customers, with what can only be described as, disrespectful and appallingly.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down, restructure, review pay, review mangers experience to pay, give employees better incentives and career stepping stones then possibly think about reopening for business.

    Pros

    Not too stressfull. No one really cared if I ate a snack or drank at my desk (not drank as in alcohol obviously!) Always something to do. The work was fairly easy.

    Cons

    The office could have been cleaner. The people were mainly very boring and unsociable. Was expected to pick it up quite quickly, couldn't quite manage at first. I only got feedback and told what they were not happy with as I was being sacked / moved on (it was a temp job) - when I could no longer do anything to change it!

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell someone how they should have been better when they are about to leave. My particular boss was also very distant and barely spoke to me; could have been friendlier.

  9. Anglian offers a wealth of experience, however in a company with a short-term mind-set.

    Current Employee - Management Accountant in Norwich, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Management Accountant in Norwich, England (UK)

    Pros

    Because of the short-term mind-set of Anglian and the demand for quick results, as an employee you have much exposure to all inter-related functions surrounding your job role. There are few barriers in place to inhibit your develop and Anglian does offer considerable training support in comparison to rival and local companies.

    Cons

    Communication amongst departments is weak and although a controversial point, top management in areas of the company appears to have been awarded their positions based on who they know rather than on merit. If you're not in the right social circles, opportunities for promotion could be non-existent. There are large salary gaps between employee levels and the short-term approach adopted by senior management raises concerns over long term viability of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a seriously hard look at top management and recognise the voices within that crowd that talk good business sense and those that are disguising a lack of ability. A modern approach to business management is required to utilise concepts that enable effective strategic planning as opposed to short-term wins.
