    I have been working at RM Education part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice new office facilities Good team work ethics Customer base expanding again Always looking for new ideas - supportive of staff working on new developments

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management Team - promotion and opportunities are about who you know not what your potential is. Too much work off-shored to India - there are some good staff in ESI but not enough. The UK have to clean up all the messes they create. Salaries are not competitive enough to keep the good staff on. Still a lot if uncertainty about the viability of the company, staff morale low in many teams. What was once an excellent benefits package that made RM stand out is now mediocre and "in line with comparators" to quote SMT. Very much still an "old boys club" - very few senior positions for women and even less for part-time workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop off-shoring everything - cheaper resource does not equal an improved service for customers and supposedly it is our customers that are meant to be at the heart of everything we do. Get rid of the boys only culture which exists.

    Pros

    This is the 2nd time I have worked for RM, and there is a reason I came back. The people here are great, the company seems to know where it wants to go and information flows through the teams on a regular basis.

    Cons

    A little bit behind in terms of technologies being offered by other rival companies which can be hard to go up against.

    I have been working at RM Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people and environment in which to work. Excellent opportunities to gain hands on experience with a large variety of technologies.

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work for there can be very limited opportunities to get training as well as excessive requirements to be on call.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training and remuneration for out of hours work so that different departments get the same benefits. In particular on call shifts should not just be an additional full time shift.

    Pros

    Did have good manager and very good policies

    Cons

    downward trajectory, company became more fragmented, managers less interested and cost cutting the name of the game

    Advice to Management

    You seem like your trying to sell the company rather than run it for growth

    Pros

    Lot of restructuring in last couple of years which has seen much more focus on putting customers at the heart of everything. Managed Services are on the up and they are firmly back in the market place. Excellent people on all levels, who are employed for their strong work ethic, Educational focus and good customer care skills.

    Cons

    Restructuring has seen some staff go as the company has pulled itself onto the right track but this has settled now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting the customer first.


  9. Lost its way in recent years, after getting too complacent about its place in the market, but moving to address this now

    Pros

    Change is afoot. Slowly, slowly trying to reverse the trend and become a qualified success again.

    Cons

    Many years of neglect have meant systems and processes need a full overhaul to make the changes stick.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the data from the people who work the coal face. Cut through the historic half truths to make bold business decisions.

    I worked at RM Education full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loyal, skilled UK work force, used to feel you were making a difference in UK education

    Cons

    Factory closed, massive (still ongoing) redundancies and jobs moved to India meaning not a penny earned/paid out there comes back into the tax/education system in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    Stop empire building at the cost of the UK economy.

    I have been working at RM Education full-time

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with. They are smart, dedicated, interesting and go out of their way to help. Is emerging from some tough times and now has a bright future ahead of it. A force for good in education: genuinely supports schools to get the best of technology for their children.

    Cons

    While the company and the services it offers have improved still has some way to go to change the perceptions of many schools.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on delivering for your customers. Keep going.
