    I worked at BSI Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    there are absolutely no pros. Directors always cover each other’s back until someone further up decides to fire them, then the same directors blame the person that left/was let go for all the huge shortcomings.

    Cons

    In a nutshell: Lower pay than industry standards, higher expectations, no support or understanding of work flor from executives, high turnover rate of employees (including execs and management), non-existent HR, unrealistically low budgets.

    Your first impression of BSI will be full of bright smiles; that impression changes very fast once you are in your first few meetings where you find out how unrealistic the expectations are, then comes the drive from upper management to make you do what they want you to do (beyond your pay grade). HR turns their back on verbal abuse and sexism/racism. You will be left working long hours with low pay and wondering what the benefit of working for a global company is

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to employees and pretend to be a white glove approach company. Excellence is never achieved let alone it being a habit. Stop investing in things you don’t understand
