    I have been working at Microlease full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company for the ambitious as the Company itself and its leaders are ambitious. Lots of opportunities and eagerness to develop people who are prepared to put in the effort.
    Fair salaries and bonus scheme
    Free private health and sickness cover
    Free canteen

    Cons

    Fast change is not for everyone and sometimes the communication is not as good as it should be.
    Evolution means that some roles become redundant from time-to-time. If you are one of the unlucky ones that is obviously tough

    Advice to Management

    Work hard on improving communication, both up and down within the organisation. More team-building, especially between the regional organsiations

    I worked at Microlease full-time

    Pros

    The people that have been at the company for years are very friendly, welcoming and approachable

    Cons

    - Very high turnover in the Finance team purely down to poor leadership.
    - Finance is also very disorganised and unprofessional.
    - They are constantly talking about employees and making comments like "I could do that job quicker etc." which makes it a very demotivating culture.
    - Very political and biased as they hire people who they know personally, despite of there experience or capabilities and are biased towards other employees despite of their good work.
    - There is no sense of teamwork and encouragement from management to work as a team and share all information.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the culture in the Finance company, this might help to retain good staff

    Pros

    Great people. Fast moving company, so it's always interesting. Senior leadership at Microlease is phenomenal.

    It's a smaller company, so not as much room for upward growth and development as you would get at a larger company. Salaries aren't always on par with industry standards.
