    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review on Glassdoor. We’re pleased that you enjoy working as part of a team and feel supported, and really do believe that our employees make the business what it is. In terms of progression, it may be worth having a conversation with your line manager in the first instance if you haven’t already done so. Thanks again. Wesleyan.

    I have been working at Wesleyan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for Wesleyan, as they look after their employees and really do care. I have been at Wesleyan for more than 5 years now, and I still feel like the business is growing. The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many areas of the business to embrace a new way of working that includes home working, collaboration via webinars and teams etc, and a more online, digital approach. Despite working from home, we are still working as a close team and the communcations is very inclusive. Lots of work is also going on that shows the business is listening to its employees, even during these difficult times. The business is also truly committed to being more inclusive and diverse, which can only be a good thing for its future.

    Cons

    Computers and systems (which are being updated at the moment and will certainly be welcomed).

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

    Pros

    City centre location, pension, staff rates when investing

    Cons

    Micro management Technology investments are very the last minute - mainly due to COVID-19 Pay scales have only recently been clarified after years of confusion And to get a pay rise you practically have to beg for it Annual bonus is biased. Management give best bonuses to the favourites

    We’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy your time working as part of a Wesleyan Financial Services. We actively encourage all of our employees to be the best that they can be, and recognise those who are doing well in a number of ways, so these comments seem very unusual.
