      Pros

      Almost impossible to get fired (so many slackers) Good experience for industry Longer days equal more days off

      Cons

      No salary review at all Hard work not rewarded, forced to come to work as keys workers and then pay deceased, very unmotivating. Colleagues get paid a lot more just because they have older contracts not because they are better at their job.

      Struggling company

      Jul 24, 2021 - Senior Manager in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people are generally really nice and hardworking, Facilities in London are reasonable, but that is primarily because of the business landlords not RBM.

      Cons

      Working practices are outdated, infrastructure is extremely old and the companies vision for the future is in catch up mode to its competitors without a view to how to overtake the competition. The company is struggling to make money and as a result employees are getting less than inflation pay rises and a very poor benefits package. This impacts more recent employees particularly as there is limited likelihood of an increased salary with experience growth. Employees who have been with the company for an extended period are in a better position, however this encourages a culture of retaining overpaid deadwood and newer brighter talent moving on quickly.
