Does Add People offer vision insurance?

Pros

The culture is acceptable. Free coffee.

Cons

Employee churn rate is very high as there is a lot of office politics and favouritism present. Pay is poor and progression opportunities are limited. I would not say that Add People are an agency, they are more of a sales business - which is fine, but if you are creative and want an agency environment, avoid like the plague.

Advice to Management

cut down on the favouritism, you might retain people in the short term, but long term it is going to damage the companies rep.

Free coffee.

Does Add People offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

Two free coffees and 2 10 minute breaks throughout the day of you can say it’s a Pro.

Cons

Management are more interested in themselves, very monotonous and repetitive..Will make you feel drained at the end of the day. Constant meetings to uplift your broken spirits..Soul destroying in an understatement. If you are 10 seconds late from lunch, believe me you will know about it. It’s like your a child and will get told off for minor petty things. Don’t take time off if possible even if members of family die as this is not allowed. BDMs that that been there longer ie 5years are brain washed to intimidate new staff.High staff turnover and always advertising for new employees due to this. This is definitely not a long term role for anyone. Undervalued!!!

Advice to Management

Look after the staff regardless of age or background.

Does Add People offer massages?

Pros

Interesting and varied work, weekly pay, free coffee, subsidised team meals and drinks, free bar on Friday and midweek company five-a-side. In the short time I have been at Add People, I have had the privilege to work on some diverse and challenging projects, with both the marketing team and the wider business. I thoroughly enjoy being part of a talented and innovative team. The company’s response to the Covid outbreak has been brilliant and HR check in with me regularly on a personal basis, which has been comforting given the current circumstances

Cons

Nothing negative comes to mind

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work

Does Add People offer parental leave?

Pros

Some of my fellow employees were very nice.

Cons

In short; - The pay was derisory, even by agency standards - Management very much played favourites - for example, there was a waiting list for parking spaces on the company. On at least two occasions though, new starters were immediately given parking spots at the Marketing Director's instruction. - 'Junior' staff weren't valued/were made to feel expendable - Because of the above, staff turnover was high. A big deal was made about the average length of service being 3 years. The only reason that's true though is because the higher-ups stay becvause they're valued while the 'junior' members of staff leave for something better-paying where they are valued more pretty quickly. - Because the company focuses on getting lots of low-value clients in rather than a handful of clients with high retainer fees, the Sales team are treated like rockstars. At no point did senior managmeernt ever seem to realise that, yeah, the Sales team get the clients in but it's the talent and hard work of efveryone else that keeps the clients on board. - Employee concerns and grievances aren't dealt with. - Having spoken to other business owners around Greater Manchester since, the company doesn't have a good reputation - one MD said to me recently "I've heard a good thing said about them" - and the Sales team's calls are considered to be a nuisance. Frankly, it baffles me that the company seems to be growing.

Advice to Management

Value your staff - treat them with respect, pay them fairly and stop playing favourites.

How are the career development opportunities at Add People?

Pros

People are really friendly, great progression opportunities and they actually do invest in their employees which is great to see.

Cons

Not many POC so beware if that is something that is important to you. As nice as everyone is, keep your cards close to your chest for a while until you've learned the landscape.
