    I have been working at Bromford full-time for more than 2 years

    The "no spoon feeding " is not always helpful. I can see why it's in place but the phrase is misconstrued sometimes and you can waste a lot of time trying to muddle your way through, when someone will already know the answer, they just aren't willing to share and use that phrase.

    Pros

    I totally agree with everything that Bromford represents and thoroughly enjoy putting the role standards into practice. There is a fantastic level of respect from and trust from managers with mobile working and managing your own workload but this gives me such a sense of pride that I am solely responsible for improving my patch and helping individuals from all walks of life flourish. There are fantastic benefits on offer...

      I have been working at Bromford full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Supportive colleagues, forward thinking company who make their aims and objectives clear, good working conditions, encouragement to be yourself, recognition of achievements, opportunities to progress or move to various areas of the business.

      Cons

      Expectations of colleague commitment are high. Not necessarily a con however most roles require some flexibility. Maybe not the place to work if you just want to do set hours then go home and forget about it.

      Advice to Management

      Ensure we use the skills of our people to our best advantage. Continue to communicate well and encourage decisions to be challenged.
