    Pros

    I really enjoy working at BUPA. They're very good to staff and give them recognition, They are constantly wanting to hear from us and work on our feedback. I love working for such a big, global company. There's lots of career opertunities.

    Cons

    I feel that where I work, there is a lack of staff. Also there seems to be a lot of budgeting. I also feel that we deserve alot more than the minimum wage.

    Brilliant and exciting place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Bupa International

    Pros

    Fantastic purpose that binds the company together.
    Strong and engaging exec leadership that is really challenging the status quo, changing the culture, embracing innovation and exciting (albeit aggressive) plans in areas such as digital, already with early results.
    A real sense of optimism on what is possible

    Cons

    As you can see from other reviews, the size of the opportunity and ambition is not for everyone. If you are not resilient, passionate or uncomfortable with change, it's not for you.
    If you thrive on making a real difference to people and their health and are prepared to contribute and commit to some big ambitions, you'll love it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be bold and relentlessly drive us to where Bupa can be.
