‘Essentially you could work from home but at any point this could be pulled and you'd be under increased scrutiny as there is no trust for anyone in any position. People would always assume you're slacking off or not doing work and that the only way to monitor this was to sit near you in office and watch you.’
‘You could be flexible - as long as you worked core hours between 10 and 2, and attended meetings you're invited to which can be between 8 and 5 with no prior notice, and as long as any time you 'took off' was worked back in the same working week... so very flexible as long as you never needed to be flexible.’
‘What pension plan? If you make it past the retirement age (whatever that may be) you'd have been better off croaking it while at Twinkl, At least then you'd get death in service.’
Private accessible health cover, decent annual leave entitlement, good routes for progression, and flexible working opportunities
Health insurance is good but other benefits are not useful (financial well-being app)
Worst thing about the benefit package at Twinkl is it's reserved for friends only. People exchanging favours behind closed doors.
Holidays have increased and flexible working hours.
Perks included free fruit and beverages while working (as long as you didn't abuse the system), free breakfast (as long as you ate it before half 8, not at your desk, and didn't abuse the system), a retreat once a year to Centre Parks or similar (mandatory attendance where we get to watch many many PowerPoints celebrating the successes of the Execs, the babies born that year and where we'd go next). We also got discounted membership at Nuffield Health (probably the only perk worth keeping or asking for). Standard eyecare was covered by a very basic health insurance policy and we got access to an extremely rudimentary mental health care system which included automated phonelines and a Big Wall we could write on.
The holiday is reasonable
Very little benefits given, money is being spent on growing the company and not looking after current staff.
You get free coffee when the machine works and that’s about it. The package is very basic overall
The pay is ridiculous - free cakes and coffee does not mean you'll except less pay.
Poor package. Everything is the bare minimum.
