    Used to be fantastic. Not any more

    Line Manager (Current Employee) Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    ProsThe staff are a fantastic bunch of people to work with. The facilities are generally pretty good for a call centre with decent areas for relaxation at break times.

    ConsSell sell sell. This is all that seems to matter nowadays. Bonuses are reducing year on year and even staff breaks are being reduced from 15 mins to 10

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease remember that the staff who help make your huge profits are people too. The bonuses we used to get made a huge difference to our standard of living. Most people used them to afford holidays etc. It seems that the only people with reducing bonuses are the majority at the lower end of the pay scales when senior executives keep collection their millions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
