    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.

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

    Pros

    Staff are great, everyone made me feel part of the team on my first. I was quite shocked and taken back with a welcome card and a nice balloon on my desk, lovely way to start a new job. Also the flexibility around working hours which is great.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    The only think I would mention is the pay structure is a little out. Everyone seems to be on a different wage regardless of length of service. And a month or two after I joined the company they increased the pay structure for new NC which is a little disappointing for me as my pay has not been reflected in this.

    I have been working at Bromford full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great and rewarding to be able to help others and be in a position to improve the homes for our tenants . Company has some good ways such as flexible working , able to work from home too .Company seems financially strong and secure and growing.

    Cons

    Some years ago I along with many colleagues was given an At Risk of loosing my job Letter as they shut the office I worked from. Very worrying times ,I was kept on but others had to leave . Fuel expenses at 25p per mile is not the best and clock many miles too in my own car ,no offer of company car either.
    Very little/no opportunity to move up and get promoted.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Bromford full-time

    Pros

    I met some really great people while working here.

    Cons

    It's definitely a case of who you know not what you know

    Advice to Management

    Bromford is a mediocracy.

    If you are friends with management then you will go far, regardless of talent or ability. You have managers who have no idea how to manage people and in turn promote others who are similarly ineffective so there will be no threat to their position.

    If you just want to go somewhere and mark out time or need something to tide you over I can recommend it but I wouldn't suggest you make a career out of it.
