    BGRS offers great flexible working arrangements and are always working on improving these - this is a huge plus for them.

    I have been working at BGRS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Location is very easy to get to in Canary Wharf and it's actually a great area! Staff are very friendly and nice you can make great friends there. The office itself has a good kitchen and there are all sorts of quizzes and social things happening. They do let you work from home after your trial period and this has helped me manage childcare better. Relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Though the staff are all nice people mostly, in the department I worked there is a really unprofessional senior manager (SVP level who sits outside of the UK) who is the reason why no one stays in that department for too long. That person is a bully and will also make up allegations and twist things. It's so intolerable that I'll be leaving soon.
