    Pros

    Great people
    Great flexible working
    Opportunities for profession
    Free on site gym
    Amazing people

    Cons

    Internal progression is hindered by 10% pay gap. This also means external staff will likely start at a higher salary for the same job grade or even lower

    Advice to Management

    Review 10% pay cap for internal candidates
    Review salaries twice a year for outstanding staff/flight risks

    Policy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Staines, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bupa (Staines, England) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in company website. Contacted by recruiter for phone interview. Phone interview with manager and then a face to face interview followed by an on line maths test. Felt that the interview went well but that they didn't really know what they were looking for as the description kept changing. After the whole process above got zero feedback.. wasn't even told I had been unsuccessful! Internal recruiter ignored my polite follow up emails. Gave a very bad impression of the company so glad not to be selected!

    Interview Questions

    • Was asked totally irrelevant questions about maths formulas. This was done by the head of department to test how you respond to situations. It I think it was more just to make people uncomfortable   2 Answers
