    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.
