    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.

    I worked at Anglian Home Improvements full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working pattern and nice colleagues

    Cons

    Little freedom to innovate, caused by restrictive processes and failure of exec team to look beyond the sales week. Will only copy the competition, not create their own identity.

    Advice to Management

    Create an identity, care about the people who work for you and drop the bureaucracy. Its only there because people are afraid to make mistakes.

    Become 21st century.... ban the words "that's how we have always done it" and "there is no money for that". Being nice to people cost nothing.

    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.
