    I have been working at Daisy Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible working and good support structure and opportunities for progression if you work hard

    Cons

    The company has many experienced and talented people but we dont always use the talent across the whole business. I feel if we leveraged their knowledge across other parts of the business we could deliver an even better service

    Pros

    Decent holiday allocation. New casual dress code Some very good 'middle managers' and senior technical staff. Some very smart networking staff who hold the company together from a technical perspective.

    Cons

    Fear of being made redundant - recent redundancies across DCS business. Instability isn't a good thing for anyone. Poor pay structure imbalance - people don't want 'perks' but a decent base salary. There's a reason jobs are posted without salaries on and when they are (accidentally, emails are immediately retracted. No pay rises unless you move within company or leave and come back.. stops people thinking about working at Daisy longer term. Far too many junior staff and service desk employees who have no clue what they're doing, through no fault of their own. Technical change process that you spend more time following than actually doing any 'useful' work. The people who manage this have no clue what they're doing aside from following orders on things they've never worked on before. Some customers are bent over backwards for whilst anything other than similar 'bigger' customers are put to one side. This gives the company a bad reputation compared to others.

    I worked at Daisy Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Car allowance, work from home, flexible working.

    Cons

    Poor customer service and service delivery. Significant inexperience and lack of structure and automation, particularly within operations means that it is very difficult to get any solution delivered. Poor support due to lack of support staff and lack of training. This is essentially down to too many redundancies across the support function and a high proportion of junior team members. The support team work hard but don't have a chance against their workload. This leads to high customer churn. Was headhunted from a previous job for a specific role, then made redundant within 8 months in the role, after performing well against targets and KPI's. Company seems to have struggled to integrate from acquisitions of Alternative networks and Phoenix. I believe once this is done and supported products are identified, the company may once again perform well in this market.
