    I worked at Amplifon full-time

    Pros

    General colleagues are great, but demoralised.

    Cons

    Management lack any communication skills.

    Target driven company, due to competing with the NHS. Have to upsell, so they make vulnerable and elderly patients buy unnesscessary items.

    Many Management are not qualified to be in there positions. So pass the pressure they cannot handle onto their teams.

    Competing against the free NHS, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how badly they are doing. Have been known to get rid of staff, only when they need to look like they are managing the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would like to be treated.

    Market leaders in their field with great opportunities for audiologists and the young and dynamic. World wide business so scope for working abroad.

    One for the younger generation of employees. Limited parking at the head office. No other consider needed as all in all a pretty good company.

    I have been working at Amplifon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Amplifon include the ability to work internationally, to change a very stale industry and work with a great team.

    Cons

    The downsides include 'managing up' to HQ

    Give the teams the teams to do the work and support them.

    A great workplace to work,constant guidance from seniors having professional acumen of 15-20 yrs.

    Not anything....everything is good about the company.....you won't find anything negative abt the company...everyone in the company is helpful

    Advice to Management

    Just keep up the good work.....but try to look deeper into your employee's mind,so that you can think from their perspective and be able to resolve all their queries on all professional aspects..

    I worked at Amplifon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good team ethic, good focus on clinical testing. A good selection of technology available and a nice working environment. All staff were very pleasant.

    Cons

    Not a well known brand in UK and diaries can be very quiet. Expectations are to form local alliances with other businesses such as care homes and GP surgeries which can be harder than it sounds. Career progression is talked about but also very difficult to achieve - quite a gap between leadership and people in the trenches. You have to be quite cliquey with the management which some can manage but not all want to be. I am not sure company can keep the differentiation it is trying to achieve between itself and competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the clinical focus but try and understand the difficulties that people face in store more rather than increasing expectations - be more realistic.

    Targets versus patients. everything else is good for audiologists.

    Advice to Management

    Give prior attention on targets versus location so that employees can work fully towards them
