    Pros

    The IESA culture is great, the management team are completely open to your ideas and are willing to listen and develop people who work hard. IESA are a rapidly growing business which invested in a brand new training department. In addition to this, senior management deliver a big ideas group once a quarter. The curre t topics are a fixed canteen, vending machines, outside eateries and much much more. IESA care about...

    I worked at IESA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The lady I sat next to was nice and she was helpful.

    Cons

    Get rid of you when they want. Never even inducted me into the business. Wasn’t aware where fire exits were or anything like that. Parking was rubbish and had to get a bus and leave my car on a car park all day!!!

    Advice to Management

    Sort your cr*p company out instead of delivering false promises to staff. Turn over is shocking because they’re crap

    Pros

    IESA staff very helpful but most haven't got a clue.

    Cons

    IESA's customer is a disgrace (JLR). Will try anything to get you sacked from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more transparent with employees about future positions and stop making them up.

    I worked at IESA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The officer environment was excellent, everyone was super friendly and were always willing to help. Another pro of working at this excellent company is the management team, they're all extremely understanding when emergencies and unplanned events happen. In addition, the company is rapidly expanding and is continuing to grow at a high speed. This is a great company to work for & I would of never left the company...

    Cons

    Parking is an issue however, they provide a second option which includes parking on a different lot and getting a shuttle bus which is less than 2 minutes as they have limited space on the main car park, however its an inconvenience to park else where and get a shuttle.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the kitchen by adding more microwaves & an option to get a snack like a vending machine for example.

    I have been working at IESA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    IESA has grown from £80m to over £300m in the last 5 years. It is a successful, fast paced that is constantly evolving with a core of dedicated and hard working people who are responsible for such phenomenal growth.

    Cons

    Too many people arrive thinking that IESA owes them a living rather than contributing to the success of the business. They then end up on here complaining.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focussed on being the best.

    I worked at IESA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are very pleasant to work. Good location and lovely building.

    Cons

    Due to poor management I've so many good people get dismissed or their recruitment contract not getting renewed because they decided they don't like person. Poorest people management I've seen Although it's a good location, you can't park anywhere! It's away from the company's and it's so far away you need to take a shuttle bus. Also, don't forget your other ad hoc duties of doing dishes, taking out the bins, and...

    Advice to Management

    Instead of firing employees work with them. A good management team leads their employees not drive them to leave.
