Colleagues (not senior management). Youthful, hard workers.
Senior management don't have a clue. All the positive results come from their hard work, but snr management take the credit (financially too!). Very poor pay (seriously guys, respect yourself and go somewhere that respects you enough to pay you properly).Phastar Response2w

I’ll have to get back to you
A lot of management problems. Some people are overworked, especially in US, while the UK people are lazy. The executive team is loaded with narcissistic personalities that are unprofessional. Good employees leave or are let go because of poor mgmt. and acquisitions. The UK doesn’t know how to run a global company.Phastar Response8mo

Best work life balance I have ever come across. Sensitive and considerate Line Managers. B-Corp registration
Value is often placed on those who are 'loudest' not necessarily the most skilled. Management often move rather than try to deal with poor performance. No bonus, limited perksPhastar Response8mo

We'd be very keen to understand your feedback in the 'Cons' section in more detail in order to take steps toward improvement.

The people are great and the training provided is very good . The transition from training to the actual job is smooth and there are no steep learning curves.Lots of socials
I would say salary is mid-low and the benefits are the standards, nothing fancy!
