      No culture, no respect, awful place to work

      Pros

      I cannot think of any pros. I'm baffled by the positive reviews!

      Cons

      - Poor management, very old fashioned, stuck in the past - NO culture and awful bitchiness, so much gossip and people talking about others in the office. It's a toxic, stressful environment - No nice extras- benefits are next to none, think we had free fruit in the office once... There isn't even a communal space to eat lunch - Very low salaries, you have to fight for a pay rise and when you get it you are made to feel like you should be extremely grateful when it's still so low compared to what you deserve - Made to feel like you are a pain if you ask for flexible working options due to personal circumstances, even after COVID - You are just a number, not a person, and are made to feel like all companies are like that when they're not Honestly, I could not recommend this company to anyone, stay away.
