    Summer Sales Internship Programme UK

    Summer Sales Intern (Former Employee) Reading, England

    ProsA lot of responsibility.
    Great support.
    Loads of opportunities.
    Good money.
    Company van with petrol (for social use too).
    Looks great on CV.
    Head office visits very fun and informative.

    ConsLong hours (you will be knackered all week).
    Very sales focused (cold calling in person).
    Sometimes the management can be out of touch with what the interns are doing.
    Some staff on lower levels can get a bit annoyed with looking after interns (and maybe jealous of how well they are treated).

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep this internship going, but make sure the managers on all levels know what the interns are doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Intentions, Very poor Execution

    (Current Employee) Leicester, England

    ProsThe HQ is a nice building with nice anemities such as a free gym and cheap breakfast

    ConsThere is a sincere lack of career progression within the company. If you are lower than a certain level it takes an age to even be considered for a promotion.
    Some employees use the work/life balance to take liberties in terms of workload. There seems to be a lot of brown-nosing within the company to the point of no genuine opportunites for training or development

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure people get promoted who work hard, not just the people who are your friends and good at talking

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Functional Analyst (Current Employee) Reading, England

    ProsIt's a great company offering a lot of good experience and a good place to start your career. I throughly enjoyed my time with them, lots of work to be done so never a dull moment!

    ConsSlow career progression and movement within the IT department and little chance of a salary raise. Felt like everyone was quite constrained with movement and a lack of investment made it a frustrating department to work in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer better career progression and more competitive salary raises.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
