      Pros

      Great team and great culture. An abundance of resources and support, locally and nationally, to create a successful practice. The leaders of Equitable are world class and seek to improve individuals in all aspects of their life. Equitable has a growth mindset and highly encourages people to seek leadership positions.

      Cons

      Not sure if this is a con. Prepare to work long and hard. The employees are coached and pushed to be more.

      14 Jan 2019 - Customer Service Representative in Derry, Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You see your rota at least 3 weeks in advance. The vast majority of staff are so friendly. Only work in 3 Saturdays and no Sundays. Only one late shift a week, which is up until 8pm. You’re able to have a life outside of work. There seems to be reasonable career progression. Once monthly voice.

      Cons

      The statistics- you’re expected to reach these strict stats while delivering excellent customer service, very difficult. The systems need updated, badly. No staff WiFi in canteen or nowhere to buy lunch on site.

      Thank you for taking the time to review - we're very aware this is not a great review but please be assured that all reviews are read and the information is used so we can get better if we're missing the mark. We couldn't do that without knowing what you think so although I'd love a great review these ones are just as important.

      Pros

      The people I work with on a daily basis are fantastic, my team leader is very supportive and the upper management seem to have time for everyone. Training is relatively demanding and very thorough, but full support is given. Office atmosphere is relaxed but professional. Benefits are great.

      Cons

      The obligatory problems of working for a big company such as IT issues, a penchant for meetings etc. but this is really scraping the barrel.

      Terrible Company

      Pros

      Market rate salaries and good bonus scheme/benefits (Although pay scales are laughable, you tend to be on the lower end..)

      Cons

      Toxic Environment, A real problem with bullying and a weak HR Dept that won't deal with it head on (Risk averse). Too many meetings, too much politics, too many bureaucrats and as a result you are overworked and stressed and adding no real value to the company! Leaders have no backbone and can't make decisions (or are afraid to) you are generally treated like a naughty schoolboy.
