    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at REL Field Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Work with some great brands. Have made friends for life with some colleagues. Confidence building

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Don't feel listened to manager or wider company. Big demands and not the tools to fulfil them. Changes to my job role without consulting, assuming we will just get on with it.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at REL Field Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I got the opportunity to work with some fantastic brands and campaigns, which ensured no two days were ever the same. There's a great mixture of co workers which I would not of come across within my social setting. As a company I felt REL kept me motivated through various activities, although personal development and performance reviews didn't meet the same levels. The company managed the Covid situation empathetically and professional which I felt contributed to me securing my current role.

    Cons

    Performance related bonuses or pay increases were lacking.

    Pros

    True people business that really does put its people at the heart of everything. From Central Services team, HR, Recruitment and Fleet to office team, managers and all colleagues REL attracts the right calibre personal whom quickly flourish within the business meaning strong results that stick for the clients.

    Cons

    With all honesty there really are none - as a business always open to suggestions / recommendations and ensuring its number one asset (the people) are always at the forefront of all business decisions

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at REL Field Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Understanding, thoughtful managers throughout the company. The team spirit is high, despite the majority of colleagues not working in the same office or retailer. Bonus system if good and fair.

    Cons

    There are dated methods of communication, such as logging in by sending your manager an SMS, and paper certificates for achievements/awards. The bonus system is also very complex, with the targets fluctuating often.

    Very few and too trivial to mention
