    Pros

    Home time !
    I must enter at least 5 words but I don’t have that many positives

    Cons

    Management drive you so far into the ground , don’t listen , only care about themselves and their commission. Will remove people who are weak links. Several members have staff have left the renewals team since I’ve been there over a year due to mental health problems caused by the management !

    If you are I’ll they ring you constantly until you come in.

    Sick note ? They don’t care they carry on ringing.

    Bad pay.

    Management laugh if you have any type of mental health problem.

    HR drag you in a room with management and interrogate you as to why your stressed or have mental health problems making it worse.

    One member of staff was on the sick for 6 months and harassed her to the point she could no longer return

    Advice to Management

    Get a new job that doesn’t involve speaking to humans at all.
