    Pros

    Amazing people to work with, fantastic, authentic culture, an infectious atmosphere of success

    I have been working at Thomsons Online Benefits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    All of the people are brilliant at Thomsons! The way they have looked after us over the last 6 months with COVID has been fantastic and I feel that they have genuinely put us first. The opportunity for development is huge if you lead your own path - nothing is put in your lap - you have to be prepared to work and invest in your self (take on new challenges) to see results.

    Cons

    It has really busy periods of the year as most businesses do, could be more diverse within some of the teams there

    I have been working at Thomsons Online Benefits full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People really live the values of the company and there's a sense of "in it together"; From a product perspective, there are some really exciting things happening which is really engaging and exciting for the future; It's high paced and challenging, so you're never bored; Some of the best client brands in the world, hands down; During covid-19, the Exec and policies have been super supportive

    Cons

    If you're not a self starter, you'll probably be lost. Although onboarding and training have improved a lot, at the end of the day, no one is going to hold your hand (not for long anyway). Although it's improved, management still remains largely white and male.
