How is the work/life balance at Oliver James?

Pros

Fast paced entrepreneurial business that allows employees to develop alongside the business. Constant opportunities for change and transformation, while allowing input from teams to develop systems and service. Clear pathway for progression, with expectations and objectives clearly defined and measured. Rewarded when met, not a culture of moving the goal posts. OJ do what they say they will. Opportunity to develop skills with training, both by internal and external providers. OJ allows the flexibility to create your own career plan. They help you identify your strengths and allow you to develop your role around these areas/ areas of interest. Now have flexibility to work from home which allows me to have a better work life balance.

Cons

The business moves at a fast pace, if you are not willing to work hard then you may be left behind.

Advice to Management

Continue to allow your employees to take up roles and opportunities that come along with the business progression and growth! Would love the endlessly filled soft drink fridge to make a comeback!
