    I have been working at Funding Options full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The environment and energy in the office - Colleagues are always willing to help where they can - The culture is easy to fit into and growing in diversity - There is a renewed sense of motivation since Simon took over - Smashing targets like there's no tomorrow!

    Cons

    - It would be great to see more flexible working for sales - We don't do enough all together as a business. The offsite was great, but more fixed events would be amazing.

    I worked at Funding Options full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A culture where colleagues are helpful towards each other, and where outside visitors always comment on the energy in the office.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Funding Options full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management actually care about their employees and the business, my line manager for sales was amazing during my time there and even though I had health complications during my time working was very supportive along the whole road to recovery, the company is growing rapidly and the company has a bright future ahead, it has a relaxed environment with breakfast and snacks to help fuel your day and is in a great location.

    Cons

    As company is growing a lot of opportunities to grow within the business as it’s going through major expansion, if you stick with the business during this change you can accomplish a lot however many just look at the short term and comment on that aspect, there are bound to be some hurdles all will come across but aren’t willing to ride out the rough patches.

    as the business grows career progression becomes less clear.

    I worked at Funding Options full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with some very kind people

    Cons

    For a company that have had £10 million pumped into them over the past year they dont act like it. small minded mentality. There is no HR department and for an FCA regulated establishment it is shameful to say that all the calls ARE NOT recorded.

    I have been working at Funding Options full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very inclusive company with a big focus on culture and opportunity. I've worked at a number of sales organisations over the years but the culture here is probably the best I've ever experienced - it's fast paced and hard working with a focus on support, reward, and continuously improvement. There are clear promotional tiers (for sales specifically) and the people are really friendly, approachable and always willing to help

    Cons

    Systems, data & marketing specifically needs improvement to support the sales team and the business achieve revenue goals
