      Pros

      Pros are: * Flexi working * Sickness considerations * Generous Annual leave entitlement

      Cons

      * Team Leaders and Managers are gossips and unprofessional * Nothing is what it seems - much talk about policies and Equal opportunities however even Senior Managers constantly gossip and laugh about staff * Many managers have a power trip and feel they can treat others disrespectfully - even embarrass people! * Managers do what they want, most of them are hypocritical. I have worked in 4 departments

      Supportive but unorganised

      Jul 16, 2021 - Lead Tutor in Leicester, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Generally very supportive of cultivating a good work/life balance. Willing to give opportunities to low level employees to help grow their skills.

      Cons

      The structure as a whole is unorganised. Whilst their willingness to give jobs to people with less experience has benefits, the downside is there are now high position managers who really don't have the skills and therefore the service feels bloated and unorganised.
