      Worst company ever worked for

      Pros

      CEO had a chat with me on my last day which I really appreciated to voice my unspoken concerns. Pension contribution by company is 12% without you having to contribute any.

      Cons

      Worked here for 1 year too long, did not feel valued or appreciated. Team always short staffed and they take months & months to replace people - turn around of staff is constantly high but I was told I just ‘joined at a bad time’. Long hours expected, hard work/performance not measured or recognised - contracted to 35 hrs per week but worked 45 nearly every week for 9 months with no extra pay or time back. No incentives to do long hours other than to take workload pressure off. Very stressful and unsupporting environment - voiced to my manager that I was stressed and nothing was followed up or done to relieve this. Wellbeing neglected as no contact or department available to talk to about concerns. Most team mates unapproachable as when you ask for help you get ignored on Teams. You are just expected to know things and do them when never done before, so spent most of my time winging things as nobody had time to explain so learned by trial & error.

      Don't bother applying if you care about being rewarded fairly

      Pros

      Good internal culture with employees driving employee resource groups and good messages on diversity and inclusion coming from the top. Some good departments with great managers, learning opportunities and flexibility.

      Cons

      REWARD - you will not be rewarded for hard work, you will not be rewarded fairly for promotions unless you think low single digit salary increases are enough. Annual salary increases are a joke. Promotion system is a joke and you won't see any money for months after being promoted. Your reward is to work more for nothing after being dragged along for a year working your behind off to progress in your career. Salaries in general are below market rate and will stay that way. Culture and workload is luck of the draw - some departments are AWFUL and you'll be working overtime every day, some are ok. Some departments have no flexibility when it comes to shifts and no flexibility in general. Most people are working remotely during this pandemic but watch most of the flexibility be removed once everyone's back in the office. Some department heads are desperate to get people back in the office full time even though everyone's been working from home fine for the past year with no adverse effects.

      Pros

      Benefits are ok. Not best in sector but not terrible.

      Cons

      Poor management which in turn causes additional stress. Low pay increases if at all. No longer term planning.
