Featured Review

Current Employee - Risk Management

I have been working at Bupa full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Customer centric organisation, genuinely trying to do the right thing for customers. Whilst its an insurance product, they are really trying to help people get the best care. Really do care about... their people, and driving an inclusive agenda.

Cons

Sometimes it doesn’t feel as though there is a plan with everyone contributing on anything that personally matters to them. This was different during Covid

Advice to Management

Keep the focus we have seen during Covid up, and keep the decision making sharp and snappy
