    Pros

    None. Absolutely none. Nonexistent none none.

    Cons

    Claim to offer “flexible working” but then tell you that you have to be present between 9-5, cannot be absent during Summer holidays and are unable to attend medical appointments during office hours (even if you have cancer). Very flexible 😡.

    They are inhuman. I had a miscarriage and therefore took some sick leave. Understandably, I was distraught. However, they hounded me at home with excessive absence letters and called me into a lengthy meeting on my first day back to “explain my absence”. This was followed by a formal warning.

    This was later followed by a demotion because I took time off for family reasons. I appealed and won but instead of being reinstated I was offered a measly settlement.

    I was then placed in a very unfriendly team. Denied training. Excluded from team meetings and activities and given low-brow work to do. Following nearly a year of forced long (10-12 hr days) I was forced to quit as I just could not cope.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value diversity. Learn that people are human. Disabled does not mean stupid. It took me years to get my promotion as I kept company my up against roadblocks due to my disability.
