    I have been working at Peninsula full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I have worked for Peninsula for over 5 years in a number of different roles in departments across the organisation. I can honestly say I have never come across a Company so committed to not only providing a fantastic service, but also to looking after their employees. I joined the sales team on floor 6 18 months ago after working within the advice and documentation departments for a number of years, and I am so happy...

    Cons

    There are none that I have come across. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Peninsula so far and look forward to the future here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Peninsula full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Having worked on the sales floor for almost 18 months after a stint in the advice department, I can honestly say this a fantastic place to work! It really is a shame to see negative reviews from people who have left - the support is incredible, management wants to see everyone succeed and provide everything in their power to get you there. The people who have posted negative reviews won't have had the right attitude to...

    I have been working at Peninsula full-time

    Pros

    The most obvious is money. not the basic as that's similar to other sales jobs in and around Manchester. the real money made here is via commission. if I don't double my wage with the commission, I'm disappointed! I am just about to go on another incentive trip to Dubai. I have been on a few trips before and they are amazing. Career progression is always an option. Most of the management have been on the phones and...

    Cons

    This is a tough sales job there's no getting away from that. I often read reviews good and bad and see that the management is often criticised for being tough. They are, but for the right reason. If you are willing to change and take on what's being said, then this place can work well. A lot of pressure to perform. strict on attendance etc

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say really. Training and advice is always on offer. I earn more now than I ever have so what you are doing is working!

    I worked at Peninsula full-time

    Pros

    Potential career prospects. Excellent potential to warn money.

    Cons

    Be prepared to witness and some of the most unnecessarily disgraceful, degrading, appalling and hostile abuse. Shocking for such a corporate company. Scandalous considering they are an HR consultancy.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point giving advice, as you have demonstrated that you are not interested in anyone's opinion, nor that you will every change. Your senior Directorship should be ashamed for letting this type of behaviour happen, and should recognise that nurturing talent is far more effective than whipping and bullying your sales staff. Nobody leaves your sales floor with good wishes for your company.

    I have been working at Peninsula full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the colleagues are helpful and understanding.

    Cons

    The main negative that I have come across is issues with IT. The systems that we are working on are very slow, taking over 15 minutes to log in in the morning, which then receive late log on notifications for. System constantly crashes when trying to save down cases, resulting in tasks going red. This week despite myself, my manager, and head of department chasing IT hourly, I have been left without any access to Microsoft...

    Advice to Management

    Please look in to the IT issues as it is having an adverse impact on the quality of service that we are providing to our clients.

    Pros

    A great place to work. Not only is there the opportunity to develop yourself, but there is also a lot of support and guidance for those willing to work hard for it. I have been with the company a short period of time but through hard work and the help of colleagues and managers, I overachieved in my first quarter. This has been life changing for myself not just for the financial gain but it also meant I qualified for...
