No opinion of CEO

I have been working at the Rank Group full-time

Pros

Management like to promote work/life balance, often suggesting I "go home" if I'm still working past 5.30

Team of friendly people who are willing to offer advice when required.

Occasional training opportunities.

The new head office is a nice place to be (people from different departments have finally started talking to each other!)

Investing in new systems

Cons

You lose about an hour each day talking to tech support.

Even when we do a good job, physical venues are in decline market and that can be disheartening.

Advice to Management

Unrealistic project deadlines make it difficult for everyone involved to do a good job. Talk to the tech guys earlier on, because those can be the biggest hurdles.

Try not to focus TOO hard on company culture, lest we end up being in a place where everybody repeats the same motivational platitudes and no actual work gets done.

    I have been working at the Rank Group full-time

    Pros

    Great level of interaction between management and staff;
    Great opportunities to progress;
    Diverse range of people;
    New office with amazing facilities;
    CEO is A model - any person of authority should aspire to be like him

    Cons

    Periodic deadlines can be difficult - but seems to do with line of profession rather than company.

    Work life balance can be improved by consciously facilitating working from home

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    I have been working at the Rank Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful new support office in Maidenhead - it is a fantastic environment and has clearly been a significant investment, which is really great for staff to come and work in a brilliant atmosphere! The culture is ace!
    The CEO is great - he has an open door policy where if there is ever a problem, he asks that you come and speak to him or other management members directly.
    Some great perks such as onsite gym, free tea and coffee, a real treat for all!
    The people at Rank are lovely, friendly and helpful.
    The Digital team is just incredible - it is such a great atmosphere around that team with a real 'start-up' feel.
    Plenty of parking at the new office :)
    I absolutely love working at Rank, and I would recommend it to anyone!

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of - all good :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - it is fantastic that you are so approachable!
