    I have been working at Anglian Home Improvements full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Since beginning my time at Anglian almost 3 years ago as an administrator, it became apparent very soon that this company valued my expertise and in exchange for this value I brought to the company they not only provided me with a job but also great prospects for a long term career.

    I have had the opportunity to work closely with senior management and through their teachings I have developed further interests in the industry. My interests have not gone unnoticed and Anglian were able to provide access to formal educational opportunities and I have successfully attained a Diploma.

    My growth at Anglian has been consistent and as I continue to follow this positive trajectory I have full confidence that bigger and brighter opportunities await.

    Will keep you updated on future events…

    Cons

    There are many challenges to working in this industry, however the difference here is that efforts don’t go unnoticed.

    Pros

    Very friendly and welcoming environment and all staff make you feel. There have been clear paths of progression introduced to make steps into management easier and attainable.

    All departments are constantly looking to improve and introduce new content, this is usually driven by the L&D department asking for constant feedback.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything specific.

    I have worked for Anglian for 33 years and during that time the company was very flexible whilst I was bringing up my children.

    There are no downsides to working for Anglian.

    Pros

    I worked in the Reactive Team for some time, it fitted around my personal and family life. When I joined I found the trainer engaging and supportive and after my initial training I went in to a glide team where I received further support until I joined the Reactive team.

    Cons

    Not a lot of on site parking.

    Pros

    The office had a kettle

    Cons

    Where to begin. Company is ran by incompetent, pushy brats. Working for them puts you in debt. They don't pay you once you've left. They lie through their teeth about how amazing it's gonna be. Leads are horrendous. You'll make maybe £25 on a £10000 deal. And most of the 5 star reviews are fake. They're all done by the admins. Look at September 2018. Those are the admin girls from the head office in Norwich, who've I've met. They've all put them on together. Snakes. They mislead you and steal money from you. 5 months later, I still haven't gotten a penny off them. Evil company. Avoid, seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Resign

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Reasonable salary with no bonus so you get paid the same even if you don’t do very well. Staff parties and nights out. Overall good company to work for.

    Cons

    Not much training on how to do the job well, so I haven’t really improved much. Can be very quiet and boring at times. No bonus when you do well which is strange for sales job.

    Advice to Management

    More training on how to book leads and bonus.
