    Pros

    Edexcel is a company in which employees feel valued and everyone works within a very positive environment. I've worked with them under various contracts and have enjoyed it every time.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Edexcel part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The good company and friends you make, including amongst the managers and P.A's, it also has a good canteen, I miss my bacon /or sausage and bean sandwich

    Cons

    The early morning shifts, having said that, you at least get the rest of the afternoon off, unless working 6 to 6

    Advice to Management

    On some of the meetings we have, we seem to say a lot of the same thing, so when you ask for our opinion, at least listen to that advise, even when it costs the company money, for example, just about every time we come in we ask for scissors that have been sharpened so that bags are cut more easily, but do we get that. No. More training is another favourite, not just for new staff, but on things that have changed for old staff, so we don't find out we have done something wrong by any mistake we make not knowing of the changes


  3. Fun, Challenging and Overall a great life experience!

    I worked at Edexcel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was really nice. The work load was never too much but always enough to keep me very busy and not sitting there feeling bored! All the floors and teams of workers were managed very well and their overall system in keeping staff happy and on top of things was always very good.

    Cons

    My Line manager wasn't the kindest of them all and was always quite un fair if the london transport made me late or i was ill! Which only 2% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your staff happy and always be understanding of any situation.

    I worked at Edexcel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very professional yet people centric. Very much focused towards work based learning which is its core competency. While working with Edexcel you never feel like you are at 9-5 job, it is like you are living your dream of building skills among the people you live.

    Cons

    Very UK based need to customise more for other regions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire right people for the right place at right time.
