    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Great to hear you appreciate the pay, people and values here at The Very Group ;-) Would love to continue hearing your feedback as we roll out the refreshed company values this year. We hope colleagues continue to be inspired and connected to them as we start to land our new company strategy. Exciting times!

    Good people, friendly environment, benefits and payed holidays are the best ever I've seen.

    Thanks for sharing your feedback. There's definitely more left to work on, including (as you say) the continued upgrade of our data infrastructure. We hope to continue making progress on this, so we can release changes ever faster in the near future.

    I worked at The Very Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good people wanting to do the right thing. The UK Call Centres had good processes and procedures which made it easy to deliver the service required.

    Cons

    Sold parts of the business to various parts of the world. We saw decrease in UK workers but seemingly an increase in unhappy customers.
