    Pros

    -Amazing people across every team.
    -Management that knows what they're doing.
    -Everyone believes in the products and knows why they go through the day to day, to make a difference.

    When I first joined, Benefex made an effort to make sure I fit in perfectly with the values they hold dear to the company and even specially ordered equipment so I felt comfortable with what equipment I was using. Benefex invests in it's people so that people will eventually bring their best to the table.

    I couldn't be more impressed.

    Cons

    -Parking is expensive in central Southampton- not a problem if you're local

    I have been working at Benefex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Although I'm only in my second week, everyone I've met has been really friendly and helpful, and management seem to be considerate and approachable.

    The first week consists of an induction in each team, which was really good to get an understanding of what people do and how the business works. It's also a good opportunity to get to know a few names and faces outside your team.

    There seems to be plenty of opportunity for growth and personal development, and a lot of people have progressed within the company. It's also really encouraging to note that a lot of people have been with the company for a number of years.

    Cons

    I haven't noticed any so far

    Pros

    Fast paced, challenging, great people and cares about its employees

    Cons

    Teams are often over stretched to meet demands of new business and not enough time to reflect on past projects. However it's improving.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support teams to deliver to reasonable time scales. Stay open to investment in areas that make us more efficient. E.g technology
