Competitive but, can be problematic to get them to actually pay what's contractually owed to you

Former BDM in Oxford, England

The pension package was good with a 20% contribution. Also sharesave scheme was generous but shares dived

Former Account Manager in Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Very basic package due to cost cutting exercises. Bonus scheme is reliant on company performance metrics which you have no control over. No health; no car package. Expenses are all covered but the system is onerous, for example, it selects the cheapest car hire packge which can mean significant travel at an airport to pick up the car.

Private health insurance, good bonus and long term incentive plan. Big separate of benefits been those at the top of the company and those further down.

Former Graphic Designer in Kidlington, England

The benefits system initially seems good (up to 5% on company performance and up to 5% on personal performance). However, since leaving the company the company has acted unprofessionally and caused me to lose my bonus. They state the terms of the bonus scheme every year, which I was made aware. When I left the company I stated an agreed leaving date, and asked HR if it would affect my bonus scheme. They said I would still receive it and everything was fine, they even sent me a signed letter in the post confirming exactly that. When I left they backtracked and said in their rules you need to still be an employee on the day they pay you the bonus, which is what I already discussed and they said I would still receive it. This was their error, and by their own cause I lost my bonus. If they communicated things correctly I could have stayed a little longer to meet that requirement. This decision has affected my family tremendously, and I am organising legal action. Never give us a carrot and take it away!

The company at the time had no perks at all.

Current Finance Graduate in Milton Keynes, England

Best things: reallocation reimbursement, CIMA study package, every 6-12 month's salary review, Pension scheme, 25 days off. Worst things: a lack of employees engagement, few incentives, salary is less competitive than other workplaces.

Former Employee

Employee review, objective and goal setting is terribly managed. Share scheme is a nice way of saving. Pension is OK. Nothing out of the ordinary. No flexible working, working from home is frowned upon.
