  • Flexible Working(6 comments)

    Everyone gets the opportunity to put in a Flexible working plan. This doesn't 100% get approved but case by case basis is looked at and usually approved.

  • Childcare Vouchers(4 comments)

    Standard Childcare Voucher offer, nothing more, nothing less

  • Work From Home(4 comments)

    Probably the one thing they've got right with their 'benefits' package though (lack) briefing to business or consistency of application loses them a star

The pension isn't great and could be improved.

Current Customer Service Manager in Coventry, England

Holiday and time off is great. The pension, health cover, bonus scheme has the potential to be great, but no one knows enough about it. HR have cascaded this out to everyone with not much detail on what people actually get.

Company's still finding its way but have seen vast improvements in recent months, not least of which is to paternity and maternity pay. Pension contributions still a little underwhelming and pay is average to industry standards, maybe a little low in practice

24 Feb 2020
Current Employee

For the level of role I perform, the overall benefits are poor, compared to other businesses, with very little senior management incentives / benefits in place.

Current Employee

Pension contribution not the best, but recent improvements in paternity leave.

Current Employee

Terrible pension scheme, only provide the minimum required. Offset by an internal employee shopping portal, where you can save spending money

15 Jul 2019
Current Employee

Pension contribution is the minimum but there is 6 month maternity pay and great shopping discounts. The company is moving to agile so there is flexibility to work from home. There is also an option for BUPA care.

Bupa health care, rewards scheme
