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

    Pros

    Exceptional new office in Salford Quays that is lovely to work in early morning or later after all the chatterboxes have left. Managers say the right things, but lack the attention to detail when it comes to creating effective processes or bothinering to assess impact of someone leaving.

    Cons

    old tech, old processes, old thinking, flat pay.

    Advice to Management

    Dont bother doing employee opinion surveys if you are not going to ACT on them.

    Its a very collaborative organisation so that sometimes slows down decision making.

    Pros

    A fantastic nurturing culture where they encourage you to be the best that you can be. The new building in Salford Quays is awesome; open plan with all the mod cons. Mobile working is encouraged and there's great work life balance. Oh and great benefits too; free gym, cycle to work scheme, health insurance, health checks, flexible working, free drinks and fruit.

    Cons

    Can't think of any; it's by far the best place I have worked.
