Nil, other than remote work.
Terrible pay, no offered pay rises, no training offered, no support, no benefits, no opportunities, they don't follow procedures and they treat people like numbers.1

Pros are I no longer work there.
Shambles of a company, run by completely incompetent management staff and director team. HR engage in gossiping about anyone and are totally unapproachable and would happily go straight to the managing director if you have any complaints about the higher ups and twist things. The managing director has no knowledge or any control of any of the goings on, and has resided over a number of record failing months to hit target. Staff turnover is extremely high, you're basically just a number to them. I was there for a few years and during that time they changed the director team at least 5 times, moving everyone around and they still continue to fail miserably. Sales "management" team continually fail to hit their target with no repercussions. It's basically a boys club, if you're in with the big boys then you're looked after. They hire without legally putting jobs on display and are quite happy to employ family for senior roles despite their complete lack of suitability for the role. Pay is minimum wage, even on salary they expect you to work way over your hours with no reward, basically meaning you work for less than minimum wage without getting anything back.2

Commission structure is decent and work colleagues as miserable as you
Where do I even start Management, unless your belonging to someone , messing around with someone or brown nosing higher up then you aren’t liked. If you have no experience at sales or managing a team then guess what your getting a promotion. This company will walk all over you and break every law in the book to scare and threaten the 18-23 year old they hire. Don’t even bother going to HR as their the puppet masters of being bullies This place screams unprofessional, it’s a boys club run by idiots. Management will push and push you to sell to the point of misselling and then throw you out when it back fires. This place thrives of you being a team player and bending over backwards to hit target with out any over time pay or reward. If you want no social like and you feel anxious and miserable about your job then please apply to work at the London mint office. Only positive thing about working here is it’s local and the other poor sods working here are as funny and kind as you .4

Leaving before they broke my spirit and dignity
Long hours Overworked 6 day working weeks No work life balance Miss-selling to vulnerable elderly people The sales agents here prey on vulnerable elderly people, they are pressured by their managers to do so to hit their target. Sales agents even dial out on witheld numbers due to trying to bypass people who have blocked their number due to previous harassment to their elderly customers. I heard one story which is true as it was a call that was listened to, a sales agent called a customer who was confused on her front door step awaiting an ambulance to arrive. The customer thought the phone call was the ambulance ringing the dispicible heartless sales agent still pitched her and sold her a 7k coin set while she was awaiting her ambulance. While listening to calls I heard what I deemed to be vulnerable elderly people say no they cant afford it 4-5 times and the sales agent still pushing for the sale and eventually talking the elderly person into saying yes. Imagine someone doing this to your grandmother and clearing out their hard earned life savings. Everyone is overworked there that is obvious they expect you to work 6 day working weeks just to meet the companies overall target so there is no work life balance. You are payed minimum wage and commission is paid out two months after you have sold it due to people potentially returning their purchases due to never wanting it in the first place as they've been "miss-sold" to. If you have any moral compass or dignity about you, you won't be able to work here. If you enjoy scamming the elderly without any conscience and working 50-60 hour weeks then this could be the place for you. Just to add you don't get any phone signal here and no personal phones are allowed so you will be completely cut off from the outside world. My advice to managers would be to cut out the 6 day working weeks and promote a healthy balance between social and work life. The company needs to be audited as the way they sell to the elderly I think is cohersive and wrong.1

There are no good reasons to work at London Mint Office.
Work/life balance does not exist. CEO, managers and other co-workers call late in the evening expecting you to work for "urgent" matters with zero thanks. There is no diversity and inclusion. CEO can be offensive. It's a toxic place to work and I cannot stress how important it is to stay away from this environment.1
