      stable workplace but bureaucratic and disengaging

      25 Feb 2021 - Customer Service Representative in Billingham, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      good salary for this kind of role, good pension, international environment,

      Cons

      incompetent leadership, boring or stressful job - days in between are rare, no career progression possibility, internal transfer practically impossible (only those who butter up to management stand a chance), no appreciation of hard work, preference towards less ambitious employees who will be satisfied with mediocre job, no HR department onsite (remote service from South), bullying - management is aware but not doing much, toxic employees kept in the job, very bureaucratic company, employees are told only what they need to know - as little as possible and they are not involved in decision making, issues swept under carpet, job is called "customer service" but it involves much more responsibility and stress

      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Review about Pigments Customer Service team in Wynyard, UK. Good company, good role, not-so-good team.

      27 Feb 2017 - Customer Service Administrator in Stockton-on-Tees, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great company to work with, looks good on your CV - The Customer Service department will hire you at entry level so it's a good start to your career - They invest a lot in your training so you are not thrown at the deep end. - There are opportunities to move up but there are masses of office politics that you have to play up to in order to get the opportunities; meaning that the promotion does not always go to the most prepared/experienced/skilled candidate but the candidate that fits in more with the cliquey-gossipy culture.

      Cons

      -The Customer Service team lacks communication and a real team feeling. - A lot of gossiping in the Customer Service team: jealousy and general misery. - A high turnover in this team however because this is an entry-level job, this is to be expected. - There is a 'blame' culture where if something goes wrong nobody owns up to it, everyone blames each other and middle management are more preoccupied with finding the culprit and reprimand them than getting issues sorted.

      Fails on many levels - not a good employer at all, contrary to reputation.

      Pros

      Prides themselves on providing above average salaries and conditions for the region (north east of England) and opportunities for advancement.

      Cons

      Below par training, over-worked staff members, micro-managing management, lack of constructive feedback and a somewhat backstabbing atmosphere. Trust no-one.

      Good if you are the manager's pet and willing to have no social life

      10 Apr 2017 - Customer Service Representative in Stockton-on-Tees, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good salary - 1 hour lunch break - private health insurance

      Cons

      - Lots of backstabbing and bitchiness. Trust no one! - They don't recognise what you good but always tell you what you do wrong - Almost impossible to get promoted. - End of the month is sacred and you have to stay till late if required (I have seen people staying till 10pm or 11pm). If you don't, you get bad looks and digs. They say that it is required that all staff give their best even though if this means not having breaks. - They try to make that this job is your life by encouraging you to do overtime and sometimes not getting paid for it. - High turnover - Clueless management since they fired the most experienced staff - Don't get sick too often or they will use it to get you into trouble, they could even sack you! I had a mate who got her probation review brought forward because her mom died and she was absent for too long. They thought they would prove a point!!! - If you have problems with your work colleagues, your team leader won't do anything about it and will keep a record to prove you are a troublemaker and can't work cooperatively.
