Does Business West have a pension plan?

Pros

Relaxed environment and friendly people. Slow paced and little pressure - a good thing for some people. Management were always helpful and managed expectations well. Very good pension scheme.

Cons

There is very little training and development opportunities, hence many younger people like myself don't stay for too long. Pay is relatively poor. Although it's a pleasure working in such a beautiful environment, the location is poor as there are no local amenities.

Advice to Management

Be more innovative with processes, roles and systems. Delegate tasks more evenly amongst the team.

Very good pension scheme.

How are the career development opportunities at Business West?

Pros

Business West is an organisation that you can be proud to work for that does a lot to help busnisses and the community locally. In most roles there are great opportunities for flexible working and it's not a high pressure environment - the people are pretty easy going. Overall, was a great opportunity for me to work there and I was happy during my time.

Cons

The organisation's flat structure means that if you are ambitious, there isn't really anywhere to go within the company. This means that ambitious people tend to leave while people happy to cruise stay (slightly harsh perhaps, but not totally untrue). There is also very little staff training.
