      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time

      Pros

      Pulse have been very supportive and have kept to their word since i have started. The training that i have received has been amazing and has covered every detail.

      Cons

      I haven't experienced any cons. But it is normal to have a bad day, but if you are having a bad day the atmosphere in the office is so motivating and drives you to work hard and their is so much support and experience around you.

      Advice to Management

      Overall being an amazing company to work for but the training involved in the role is one thing that impressed me, it covers every detail and it shows so much that they care for their new starters and wants everyone to be successful.

      Cons

      Working for Pulse and in any sales environment can be extremely high pressured and demanding, this can often result in a stressful work environment. However, Pulse have always been very understanding of this and have always supported my stresses.

      I have been working at Pulse (UK) part-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Having worked for Pulse myself for nearly 15 years, it is clear that there is encouragement to develop our own management internally, instead of employing managers from outside the business, which gives us a key USP against competitors. Career development is so important and the pathway is visible from day one. There are a number of benefits including good basic annual leave, opportunity to buy/sell holiday, online discounts...

      Cons

      Parking onsite at our office is a bit of a nightmare!

      Pros

      I have worked for Pulse for over a decade and I can honestly say I feel that they genuinely care about me as an individual and value my hard work. The company as a whole work ethically.

      Cons

      Working for such a large organisation means at times "processes" can hold you back and take time.

      I have been working at Pulse (UK) part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Competitive salary for out of town Team really gels together - real team spirit Good working conditions - nice offices - great managers Job is fun and no two days are the same

      Cons

      None so far, very happy

      Advice to Management

      Keep employing like minded people who fit into the teams and don't push too hard for the sake of the bottom line, people are flexible but will only be pushed too far if they are uncomfortable with KPIs etc, look after the staff you have got - no point in investing in training etc if they are not going to stay

      I have been working at Pulse (UK) for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Pulse provide some of the best training and support that I have ever seen in a company. This has been echoed by a number of new recruits, as well as existing staff who have developed under the organisation. There are also fantastic opportunities for progression, as well as being able to develop a career within a reputable, stable and most importantly ethical company. Almost all of the management team have grown organically...

      Cons

      Given the scale of the organisation, decisions can sometimes take a while to be made or authorised. There can also be delays in implementing changes as they may need to be mirrored or approved company wide.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to question and listen to staff feedback. The recent changes made have shown immediate return for employee morale and development and serve as proof for acting on feedback. To also be transparent where possible, even if staff disagree with decisions, they are more likely to understand and support if they have been provided with the rationale behind certain decisions made.

      The training and support I have received since joining the business has been excellent, I can always turn to managers and directors for advice. Working with a really good team makes coming into work a pleasure and I have felt welcome and part of the team since day 1.

      Excellent career progression, great benefits, real family feel, open and honest management, first class training, allows autonomy in role, forward thinking and encourages innovation.

      Sometimes difficult to measure performance if profits aren’t moving forward - this is generally the nature of recruitment.
