    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Capita full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    usually fair with disciplinary matters, but often not willing to reward initiative unless very high end cost analysis can be submitted with proposal.

    Cons

    appraisals are not often conducted fairly and scores often not calculated according to written material, automated systems used to create final score does not often match written material. pay scales are often negotiated on a like for like basis in small departments and thus pay inequalities are rife.


  2. For the most part it has been a very good experience. Work is rarely lacking, and I am well supported by my consultant.

    I have been working at Capita as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Consultants are always there to help you when you need, and make themselves available to you when necessary; a range of schools contacts means there are multiple opportunities to work in different environments across London; many resources available on their website to help with your teaching career also.

    Cons

    I wish the pay scale matched those of other agencies who pay slightly more, however it is still good; wish there was some holiday pay after working X amount of weeks in one school, even if it is at a reduced rate - it just means you're not left without any earnings during the holidays when you're not working because the schools have closed - especially if you have worked so hard (teaching is not an easy job after all.)

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay scale, particularly for those who are qualified teachers.
