    Pros

    This is a great place to work, the atmosphere is relaxed and professional, there is always an emphasis on keeping the working day interesting and fun. There's also opportunity to travel, take on tasks you never thought you could/would do and take on responsibility for much more than your role might initially seem to.

    Cons

    People's taste in music can be shocking

    Pros

    People, people, people! I haven't worked in a Company before where the people are so generous with time, warmth, fun and laughter. Being given freedom and autonomy to do my job as well as having senior management that are prepared to listen and engage with us is great.

    Cons

    Not enough internal communication about the business

    Advice to Management

    More clarity and strategy, greater communication around vision, business successes and wider collaboration between teams. More work on embedding the values.

    Pros

    Excellent personal development opportunities. Just completed a Post Grad Dip Leaders in leisure at Birmingham City Uni. Definitely a place where everyone counts.

    There are no cons in my opinion that are unique to Rank.

    Pros

    Exciting time to be working at Rank with lots if transformation initiatives, clear strategy and drive to deliver! Fun team to be working with and really looking forward to the new offices in June, with a central team based in Maidenhead, the designs look great. Wonderful to be able to be involved, have your voice heard and contribute to the companies success.

    Cons

    Once we move to the new offices then the office environment will be much improved. Benefits package could be more competitive and have more variety of options e.g. buy/ sell holidays, shares.

    Advice to Management

    Success of STARS and inter-team working is key to success - so keep up the good work and outline how to challenge with the red cards. Quicker decision making is sometimes required.
