    Pros

    Given the respect to get on with your work without being micromanaged. Very busy installation schedule. Working alongside PM's throughout installations. Able to work on support desk remotely when not installing. Great bunch of people to work with and management are very approachable.

    Cons

    To start with I thought the training was non existent however that soon changed and the engineers was receiving training to progress with their careers.

    Pros

    mid sized business and growing rapidly, but acts like a small business when looking after it staff. Excellent management mindset.

    Office is small, and with recent expansions growing overcrowded. Doesn't feel that there is much room for career progression.

    Pros

    Decent wages based on the roles with some including bonus structures for sales positions. Plenty of career opportunities for those willing to put in the effort and that have a desire to grow and succeed. Good training and open to helping people gain additional qualifications in order to progress in their career. Company is constantly growing. Directors have an open door policy which management are also encouraged to adopt. Company promotes a team mentality Directors have a huge amount of combined knowledge that they are willing to impart to others.

    Cons

    Parking is a premium which can be a bit of a hassle. Sales departments can have a high churn rate which is pretty normal for a lot of sales teams.

    Pros

    Company growth means that we work in a changing environment which is a positive working environment. The senior directors are still excited about the business we work in and like to recognise success The management care about the people as individuals, we are not just cogs in a wheel. A desire for career progression is seen as a positive thing and we are proud to be able to promote people as their skill sets grow

    Cons

    Car park has been full at times encouraging you to get to work early to get a good spot!

    9-5 pm role is good, that is it

    They will aim to get rid of you by month 3, if you dont keep up the 3hour call times and bring in business. It is an awful place to work, you must avoid.
