    I'm not entirely unhappy here but I'm not happy either.

    Pros

    It's a good company for starting out and you can make a little money when you need it.

    Cons

    There is no consideration for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a revolving door company does not breed quality.

    Pros

    I've been given endless training and opportunity to progress, in a department with really low turnover and a great team morale. Im looking forward to hitting my 10 year milestone and still loving my job as much as I love it now.

    Cons

    All of the fun IT 'out of work' things are done in Exeter :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate a bit more.

    Pros

    It's a job, they'll hire anyone in their call centres

    Cons

    Call Centre: You are disposable, the turnover rate is huge, you will be denied holidays as they are constantly understaffed, you have to get permission to go to the toilet, they give you the absolute minimum they can get away with (breaks, money, equipment), it's incredibly corporate and there is a multitude of mundane and ridiculous rules and procedures, majority of management are on a power trip and know less than the people they are in charge of, they hover around you and say nothing but negative things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your staff, happy workers are hard workers and nobody that worked there when I was there was happy.
