when I first joined IESA in 2018 it was strict and had many rules although the people where always nice. Since then IESA has actively been trying to make a better working environment for the people. Since I have been there better benefit schemes have been roled out such as being able to purchase shares at a discounted price and flexible working tomes to name a few. Yes there is still much to do in order to make it even better however I appreciated the initiative IESA has taken to improve working environment for their employee's.
The starting salary was a reasonable amount considering the experience I had. The company offered incentives however, these incentives weren't very common.
Only 20 days off a year. No time off over Christmas given - only actual Christmas Day and the bank holidays. 8am-5pm job with an unmanageable work load so you are told to stay late unpaid and begrudged if you don't. 1 hour unpaid lunch break with no other breaks. Inadequate parking space. People forced to park in front of each other which means you can't leave work until they leave. 2% pension. The odd day off through illness is unpaid. Only SSP if it's continuous. No extra pay for staying late for meetings which are frequent. Sometimes meetings are scheduled for even later without notice. Not staying for these meetings isn't really an option. No extra pay for staying late to finish work (although it's expected). In fairness to them, they do provide coffee which is nice I suppose! But I'd expect that from a multi million pound company...
no benefits except for statutory
The best thing is you can occasionally get a car park space if you are early enough.
20 days holiday 1% pension Guarantee no bonus Any sick leave, you will get question by manager on your return
Standard benefits package, you get what they have to give by law
Whilst they claim to be receptive to flexible working, in reality this is only offered if a department is experiencing high staff turnover to try and stem the flow of resignations. Pension contribution is the statutory minimum.
The pension contribution was only 3%, and although a bonus was offered, it was so unachievable it was pretty much worthless
There is no best thing as there are no benefits its just the basics and bare minimum the have to offer as an employer.
