    I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Having been part of the Pulse family for 10 years I am proud to work for such a great company. You have autonomy and trust to help grow the business, open communication and so much in terms of benefits from a simple thank you, through to an amazing Christmas party.

    Cons

    Very few, the nature of what we do = fast pace and often a busy environment, but if you work hard the pros certainly out weigh the cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and keep evolving

        I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time

        Pros

        Pulse have been very supportive and have kept to their word since i have started. The training that i have received has been amazing and has covered every detail.

        Cons

        I haven't experienced any cons. But it is normal to have a bad day, but if you are having a bad day the atmosphere in the office is so motivating and drives you to work hard and their is so much support and experience around you.

        Advice to Management

        Overall being an amazing company to work for but the training involved in the role is one thing that impressed me, it covers every detail and it shows so much that they care for their new starters and wants everyone to be successful.

        I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        - Clear Career Progression including pay rise's - Lots of supporting sales functions to make your role as stress free as possible - Managing Director for AHP is amazingly supportive and gets so involved - Training and support always offered - Uncapped commission, with a huge window to earn extra money/attend trips with quarterly and yearly incentives - Realistic KPIs

        Cons

        Recruitment can be stressful, i think everyone in the industry would agree that you need to put in what you want to get out. Pulse give everyone the tools to be able to thrive in a buzzy, fast paced, stressful environment should they be willing to put the work in. Pulse will do what they can to support you and relieve any stress where possible.
