    I have been working at Companies House

    Pros

    Flexi time to fit work around family life
    30 days holiday per year + "privilege days" and bank holidays
    Reasonably good average salary pension
    Opportunities for overtime and on-call to top up salaries
    Annual Bonus

    Cons

    Lower pay - central government caps on pay rises and setting pay freezes means this wont change soon.
    Some colleagues clearly do not pull their weight and have been put into jobs they cannot perform, yet due to union intervention they cannot easily be ejected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find ways to reward the staff that are performing, and find ways to remove the workers that do not perform.

    I have been working at Companies House

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Excellent rates of pay. Excellent employee benefits including flexible working hours, government pension. Excellent onsite facilities including staff restaurant, onsite gym and free onsite multi story car park.

    Cons

    There is some weak management in places. The food in the staff restaurant is not always of a particularly high standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better in some places. Invest more in management training and e-learning. Manage projects better and communicate the details of the projects and updates to staff.
