Current Employee - Assistant to the Executive Team in London, England (UK)

I have been working at Brook Street part-time for less than a year

Pros

They treat people with fairness, respect and decency.
They help employees develop their potential.
They look after the environment and they are ethical.

Cons

May be could consider work life balance better and review investment policies in certain locations in Africa.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Company has a fantastic reputation, but in the past 18 months there have been some profit warnings so things have not been so good.

We need Leaders who are inspired, have vision and are decisive to effectively manage the company. Have we lost our way?

Instead of cost cutting and redundancies.

    I worked at Brook Street full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, about average for industry. The training is reasonably average for new starters with no recruitment experience, the inhouse computer system is good although so dated in other areas of technology, LinkedIn only just on radar

    Cons

    Dreadful organisation. Old fashioned beyond belief - branch network dated, marketing 5 years behind competitors, very kpi's driven, all about volume not quality. I actually heard a director say in a mangers meeting they are about quantity not quality! Old fashioned management which is totally lacks any inspiration, totally behind times in London, trying to use a local industrial recruitment model to London market, very low salaries, high staff turnover, certain type that tends to work their and very that's very low market high street

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would not listen so no point.

    Former Employee - Administrative

    I worked at Brook Street as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly, but ultimately professional no help at all

    Cons

    No employee support at all
    No advice or help
    Very slow / non existent at replying to emails and calls
    Have tried to not pay me on three occasions claiming they had not received my time sheet - had to prove i had sent it
    Once messed up my pay and insisted there was nothing they could do to correct it, and never did reimburse me for the few pounds that I was short (only about 5 pounds but refused to cough up)
    Frequently change timesheet deadlines with no notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just read the above and invest in staff training
