decent company to work for with occasional promotion opportunities

Student Support Officer (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Hobsons full-time for more than a year

Prosmany incentives such as vouchers or team outings for meeting or exceeding your own or the group's KPIs, nice, rather relaxed atmosphere, expanding business so new positions were being created which tend to get filled internally in the first instance

Consrather low pay compared to working for example for universities directly, Operations Managers have to be constantly pestered regarding pay reviews, the incentives such as weekly vouchers for exceeding KPIs were suddenly scrapped after a year and not replaced with anything else despite promises from management whilst the KPIs increased during the same period

Advice to Senior Managementshould take greater care not to lose some of their best staff who often go off to work for the company's competitors directly i.e. the universities. also should invest more time in client retention as they have lost quite a number of contracts recently.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
