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

    Pros

    What can I say, since the moment I joined a few months ago Peninsula have been nothing short of amazing, supportive to all employees and really looked after its team during a pandemic. The staff, management and leadership are a credit and a example to other company's. An absolutely fantastic place to work such a supportive environment that encourages personal growth.

    Cons

    None at all, keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    I have worked for PBS for nearly 6 years now based at Hinckley. The people I work with are the best. In terms of the business , it's a great place to further your career in any direction. They favour internal promotion and internal development . They pay well and also offer a number generous bonus schemes to further enhance your pay. The Hinckley office is great, with a brilliant Canteen and good working environment. Overall it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    It would be great to have a parking space. It can be an extremely demanding role at times.

    Pros

    A supportive Company that cares about employees, the role has several perks and line management in the department I work in are excellent.

    Cons

    The cons are few compared to the pros. Progression opportunities within the department is something that has needed more clarity but is being worked on to give a clearer path to those wanting to build a career with the Company.

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

    Pros

    For those willing to work hard, want to learn and develop their own knowledge, and make genuine career progression, then Peninsula is the perfect environment. The training and resources are excellent and the support available on a daily basis is second to none, meaning you can get on with performing your role to the best of your ability. Hard work is rewarded with generous salaries based on a structured performance review process and in addition this there is ample opportunity to increase your earning further. The work in itself is extremely rewarding as client’s needs can vary greatly. If you are motivated by challenging yourself on a daily basis whilst also providing the best service you can for clients then you will thrive. Along with the great support structure there is also a friendly social aspect to the role with the Company actively arranging various events and corporate days often in aid of charity.

    Cons

    Whilst certainly not a negative, the work can often be very fast paced and with client’s needs varying so greatly it is a challenge you will need to embrace and enjoy. The role requires a determined and resilient mindset as much as it does any other attributes, which serve to make your successes all the more meaningful.

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

    Pros

    I must start this review by noting I joined Peninsula a month before COVID-19 really started effecting the UK. Rather than feeling insecure in my position, the management team made me feel empowered and capable of dealing with the extremely high volume of work. Their ability to adapt so quickly to the change in circumstances is astonishing for such a large company. Peninsula is a place where sucess is celebrated, and hard work is rewarded be it monetary or through opportunity. I've never before joined a business where all promises made at interview were met mere weeks into joining the business. The support is second to none, if you are looking for a business with drive and passion to develop your knowledge, career and even confidence I would highly recommend considering a career at Peninsula. The training programme conducted by various staff from senior management, to consultants themselves has elevated my knowledge in the legal and technical realm of employment. If you are keen to develop, whether you have 3 years or 30 years experience, I can confidently say you will all whilst working a rewarding job. I've had the absolute pleasure to work alongside Gavin Daniel and could not speak more highly of how welcome and reassured I've been made to feel - even from a distance! As we say, sucess starts here! (It really does!)

    Cons

    There are honestly no cons to working here.
