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

    Pros

    Inspirational purpose, clear strategy and always surrounded by great people. Great flexibility and trust in you deliver. Really is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The speed of change with a big agenda to deliver - but all for the right reasons. Big goals ahead but will all be worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep believing in people (which I know they will) - it sets Bromford apart from the rest.

    Pros

    Empowering environment where you're supported and encouraged to achieve your potential
    Career opportunities and role flexibility
    Flexible working and overall work-life balance

    The parking at EC, but it is right outside the building and free, and just means you may need to double-park someone.

    Advice to Management

    None - there's a lot of change going on, but there appears to be a real sense of purpose and direction, with effective comms.

    I have been working at Bromford full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Always trying to be as pro-active as possible and stay ahead of the game.
    - Not scared of change.
    - Management trust you...to make decisions, to challenge the 'norm', to work flexibly, to manage your own work load...they simply just trust you!
    - They back your career development; ensuring you go on relevant courses and allowing you to progress and develop in a variety of roles at the company.
    - Great benefits - great pension offerings, holiday entitlement, flexible benefits etc.
    - The people! Colleagues at Bromford are fantastic; always happy to help, insightful, friendly, caring, funny and they all love the company and work very hard to ensure its success.
    - Bromford's morals and social purpose - We are all about unlocking our customer's potential and helping them be the best they can; a home is just a springboard; we help them with so much more.

    Cons

    The only one is that sometimes people are so passionate about Bromford and wanting to see it succeed that the lines between work:life balance can become a little blurred! This is all through the Colleague's own choice though as they are so keen to achieve the very best results for our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Make brave decisions and never stop 'being different!'

    Good team member communication, variety of work, always someone to help you.

    Cons

    Ooh call out is to many in a week for the pay, spend more time driving between jobs than time spent working each day. Planners in Wolverhampton cannot plan your working day in Gloucestershire.

    Advice to Management

    Gloucestershire depot and stores department is way behind Birmingham depots and we are getting bigger down here over the next 2 years.
