    I have been working at Seetec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Seetec has survived the cull of the 'welfare to work' market as many competitors have gone out of business. This itself shows positive strategic decision making and direction. A stable company with a positive outlook, breaking into new markets and locations. Staff are encouraged to engage with Snr Management to ensure there is clear understanding of staff training and resource needs in order to do a good job.

    Cons

    Like any job or company you work for, sometimes things don't go to plan. However, it's how the company responds which is the measure of a good company. Seetec is definitely improving in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the improvements in engagement and connections being established between Snr Mgt and frontline line teams.

    I worked at Seetec full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company pitches well for government contracts evidently with a success rate.

    Cons

    I left my senior management position after 3/4 weeks - following training at various offices in East Anglia and North London. A truly horrible enviroment - overworked, underpaid staff with outdated management practices - no wonder that so many 'junior' emloyees in the regional offices I visited treated the people under their care with so much contempt. Horrible just horrible.

    Advice to Management

    I am easy enough to find - if the MD/CEO wants to find find me.

    Pros

    Loads of responsibilities to ensure are taken care of and fun managing the people. Good location in London with lots to do around and in the area.

    Cons

    Not easy to get on with everyone. Mixed group of people to react to all the time from old women to young boys. Not ideal for salespeople.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the everyone anytime philosophy.

    I worked at Seetec full-time

    Pros

    Salary was higher than the sector average. Technology was modern. Travel and expenses policy was good.

    Cons

    Far too many to list. But some key ones were broken promises, 3 managers in 6 months, "North" meaning anywhere north of HQ in Essex, no, zero, none, nothing to measure your performance on, panic decisions and appointments, very reactive rather than proactive. Have to reset passwords on equipment every 30 days, which is fine except the remote based staff needed to be in an office to do this. Had to use their... equipment regardless of it being fit for purpose or not.

    Advice to Management

    Pointless. Staff are numbers and easily replaced.
