    I worked at Ingeus

    Pros

    Great staff, interesting position, excellent transferable skills for all future career moves. Back when I worked there (2008-2009) remuneration was higher than it is now, and at the time was definitely highest in the industry. Same for the benefits package, although I understand this has been scaled back.

    Cons

    Management often misleading on what to expect in the future - either for the company, the contract you are working on, or your own job security. Obviously this is partially due to the tumultuous nature of the industry right now (post Coalition gov't, plus the recession), but I found the lack of honesty and transparency troubling. When redundancies were made, the process for deciding who stayed was unclear, and staff were not notified in a professional manner (people heard from gossip from other offices before the individuals affected were told). For all of these reasons I would not return to work for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your staff where you can - they can sniff out your dishonesty. Be transparent about how job starts/job readies are allocated within the office, as staff talk and will begin to mistrust you if they suspect favoritism/unfair treatment. When staff approach you because they are struggling with the difficultly of the job or the intensity of the workload, LISTEN to them - don't just contradict them ("no, it's NOT that hard of a job") - let them tell you how they feel. This is crucial in developing trust with your staff.
