The starter salary is very high with great progression, enabling one to live comfortably in London
Private health insurance for whole family, Pension, Free fruits, biscuits and drinks, professional development opportunities, bonus
Best - you tailor it to your own particular requirements Worst - convoluted and not completely intuitive (especially if you want to take some of your benefits allocation as a cash alternative)
Very transparent and flexible. You choose exactly what you want and you can understand exactly what it costs you.
- Great benefits package. - Very limited time off provided if you need emergency leave during family emergencies.
First year with a bonus in 5. Don't expect there to be one in the next 5.
Salary sacrifice for additional benefits; (buy/sell holiday, various insurance plans, additional pension contributions) corporate discount portal, car allowance (above certain grade). Free shares, and share investment plan. Maternity/paternity/shared parental leave policy is fairly average (I think)
Maternity policy has no length of service requirement, only must be employed 15 weeks before due date. Approx 18 weeks full pay, then SMP. 2 weeks paid paternity leave. Shared parental leave with roughly same benefits as maternity leave requires 41 weeks service by due date.
My impression is that the company pays competitive, mid-range salaries and for some roles there are discretionary bonuses, a car allowance and a flexible benefits pot.
Ability to buy and sell holiday
