A business that wants to do the right thing

  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  London, England (UK)
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

Pros

People focused values; committed to its CSR agenda (and in particular, helping young people into employment); flexible benefits package; generally open and transparent management style; development and training framework; gives employees opportunity to stretch and learn new skills.

Cons

Can be too focused on values to detriment of individual performance. Tends to over complicate/over engineer the way it works (it's a circa 400 employee organisation, not 40,000!). Decision making process can be slow.
