    I'm sorry but I think you've reviewed the wrong employer, Peninsula doesn't have a location at Gig Harbor.

    I have been working at Peninsula full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I’ve recently completed my 1st year at Peninsula Canada and it has been absolutely wonderful. I’ve never worked for a business that offered the level of support and guidance that Peninsula offers. The management is always willing to go above and beyond and rewards hard work and dedication. I’m very greatful to be part of a wonderful team and look forward to many years of success and growth.

    Cons

    Perhaps the medical coverage could improve?

    Advice to Management

    Not advice but a thank you - for always providing support and showing the way to success.

    I worked at Peninsula full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    City centre location I loved my role at Peninsula but wasn't paid enough, and workload was far too high! Great social activities Great place to gain experience & have on your CV, then move on City centre location & amazing office

    Cons

    Low salary, much below UK average Clique environment between directors & managers Call centre environment both on the sales floor and surprisingly on the advice floor (I've heard the shocking phone call targets for advisers, surely you want great customer service rather than to be rushed off the phone given the nature of the business) Very high turnover Witnessed senior managers sacked due to being unliked by...

    Advice to Management

    Look internally for development and not just to friends, those who put in the hard work & have external experience are much more suited than favourited colleagues. Don't be so stingy with recruitment, staff are overworked
