I have been working at Aston Carter full-time (more than an year)Pros
- Great place to earn money. The POTENTIAL for making good money fast is there for those who want it.
- The banter in the office can be quite good, until it is stomped out by management.
- You are encouraged to go out and meet people as much as possible
- Career progression is very much in your own hands, up to a certain point
- If you are liked by senior management, you are well looked after and can be accelerated in the businessCons
- Very poor work/life balance - Arriving any later than 7.45am and leaving any earlier than 7pm results in a full blown inquest
- Independent thought is discouraged.
- Fresh ideas and suggestions on alternative ways of approaching things are described as "being resistant" and are dismissed
- Sales floor run through fear, rather than through trust
- Spoken to like children by management
- If you are not favoured by senior management, then life can be hell. Seen impact on colleagues who have all since left the business
- High turnover of staff
- Highest billers become management irrespective of their ability to manage and no training put in place to make them managersAdvice to ManagementAdvice
