      Pros

      I resigned from BLM over 6 months ago and still I cannot think of any reason why you would work for them

      Cons

      The B in BLM should really stand for bullies or something stronger. What an absolutely awful place to work. Bullying is rife by more senior members of BLM and you can take your pick whether this is based on age, sexuality, gender or race - they all feature. You're expected to generate 7 chargeable hours a day so any break, whether for lunch or the bathroom, you have to make up the time. BLM do give you your birthday as annual leave... but be warned, you will need to work 7 extra hours that week to get you back on your hours target! The Volume recovery property has to be one of the worst departments to work in. You get zero support and work in a blame culture environment. If anything does go wrong, there is no acceptance for human error and you are made to feel useless. If you asked the partner of the volume recovery team to explain what compassion and understanding is, she would still be there a year later without any idea. Go be happy and work elsewhere... this place is not for you!
