Does Portafina offer health insurance?

Pros

Portafina really is a great place to work. Everyone is friendly and helpful and will be rewarded for hard work. Training and support is provided for every employee and there are many perks such as generous payments into our pension plan, private medical insurance, life cover, rewards for people showing the company values, all expenses paid Christmas parties, food treats, and we even get a day off for our birthday. I have worked here for many many years and see myself being here for many more years to come, as I really do thoroughly enjoy my job and the support I receive.

Cons

The main car park gets busy. The 8am shift start however does help staff to have the choice of spaces.

How are the career development opportunities at Portafina?

Pros

The best thing about working at Portafina is the career opportunities and progression. I began working here with no previous admin experience and quickly progressed to a senior administrator and then manager of my team within a year. The support you get is excellent. There is always someone to talk to about a problem, whether it is personal or work related. I can comfortably discuss a problem with my peers, senior management and our MD alike. With everyone in the company coming from a different background, there is a wealth of knowledge and experience to gain. Ongoing training is always provided and everyone is always happy to help. The benefits the company offer are great. From our BUPA healthcare scheme, to monthly bonuses, to bi-annual parties and frequent celebrations of different events (often involving food!) the atmosphere is positive and happy with a family-feel throughout the office.

Cons

With the company expanding, there are often a lot of changes that happen quickly which can be difficult for staff to keep up with.

Advice to Management

Ensure you take time to learn the different processes. Sit with the teams to get a better understanding and build a support network of people to go to for queries.
