Pros

A business that encourages change and innovation. It has made an enormous amount of change in the last few years and mostly for the better.

Cons

The company has had some challenges financially and as result it has not invested in developing the colleagues and this now needs to be done as it appears to be more financially stable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the colleagues are very important to the success of the business

    Pros

    Good for students to get some experience, young environment, social events, decent salary for students.

    Cons

    Promised benefits never paid, promised opportunities for further development never came true, some of the branches are purely recruiting only certain nationalities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve! It doesn't matter that you are dealing mostly with students you should act as professionals.

    Some good people, a lot of inefficiency and far too much politics

    Pros

    The people are mercurial; I worked with some of the best people I have ever met in their fields. The senior leadership team talk to the people on the front line in terms of customer experience and doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, far too many are average at best, and there's a lot of incompetence and lack of accountability. Despite talking a good game, with their customer plan, the focus is consistently on reducing cost base. During times of unprecedented sales demand, costs continue to be cut driving a poor customer experience and lost revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider budgets beyond single fiscal years. You lose revenue through over promised cost base cuts, which means you cut into flesh rather than trimming fat.
