    I worked at phs Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive manager
    Really friendly staff - especially at PHS Teacrate
    Great on the job training
    Work hours are fairly low, which helps with work life balance
    Free lunch in the Caerphilly canteen
    Car allowance / company car

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are on the low side but improving
    Role involved travelling (4 days in every 4 week period)
    Occasional Sunday work in my specific role (2 hours)

    Advice to Management

    The role I did was a really great training role and my manager was really supportive and should be commended.
    Pensions and other benefits such as maternity/paternity/sick are at the bare minimum by law. I know it would be expensive, but It might help display that you care about your employees by increasing some of these above the statutory minimum.
    Encourage flexible working / working from home to help with employee satisfaction

    Pros

    Free Lunch
    Convenient
    9-5 Mon-Fri
    Overtime offered regularly

    Cons

    Far to Much Expected for such a low salary.
    Unable to do job properly as walls are put up.
    Management Make it up as they go along and pluck random "new processes" out of thin air and then complain when un trialled processes rolled out across 60+ people go wrong.
    Management don't listen to staff who ultimately know what they are doing
    Treated like naughty school children

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people doing the job, We know what we are talking about.
    Pay a fair wage for the volume and variation of work dealt with.

    I worked at phs Group full-time

    Pros

    PHS offered free lunch for all employees with a great selection, also cheap breakfasts on a Friday. Big offices with everything all under one roof. Nice people and a community atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very outdated building on an industrial estate. Management and executives very set in their ways, reluctant to try new things out of their comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up the business, be more open to new approaches and ideas, and updated some of the technology. Building could do with a refurbishment!

    I worked at phs Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family-managed feel, lots of variety, opportunity for moment within the company and if course the free lunch if based at head office. The teams genuinely get along and there was no drama, at least in marketing.

    Cons

    Lower salaries than elsewhere and the speed of growth through acquisitions left the IT department with an impossible task. Internal systems are old and outdated but people seem to work with what they have.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the value of employees and compensate them better and you'll retain way more - lots of colleagues, including myself, were forced to move on because of wages.
