Pros
  • The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in (in 53 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 47 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)

    Pros

    Plenty of earning opportunity and was able to progress to assistant branch manager within eighteen months. Very supportive team too.

    Cons

    Faceless organisation where if you work in the extremities then you don't get a look-in from senior management. Before I left they started to squeeze rewards structure and their mystery shopping should never have been the decider on whether a bonus is paid or not. It put too much pressure on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Review staff rewards and client feedback models.
