    Pros

    Onsite gym. some good people until they all leave

    Cons

    Management have no idea how to run things, They just turn up in their Ferrari’s and Porsche’s and sit above everyone else ignoring all the problems in the company. There’s no benefits and hr are a joke. They never actually help anyone they just tell you to talk to your manager even when your manager is the problem. They don’t even engage with the rest of the people. No one even knows how to find them when their hidden away from the rest of the workers. Pay is way below other companies and bonus’s are only for recruiters not the rest of us who work just as hard if not harder.

    I worked at Fircroft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at Fircroft has been fantastic for the two years i have been there. The staff are lovely and they are the people that make this company. Plenty of opportunity to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Sadly Fircroft is going through a lot change at the moment, which is not being communicated with the staff. When you are in a culture that doesnt see it necessary to communicate to its staff, people begin to feel unsettled and insecure. Senior management seem to become lazier as they progress further forward, which is sadly creating a culture of "i dont care". The company has fantastic potential, but is being brought down by those doing the day to day running in regions. Regional directors are not being held accountable, and this has to change before this company can move forward. The CEO of the company is lovely, and will give you opportunities to progress within Fircroft. Having said that, there doesnt seem to be much leadership currently and what leadership does exist, is sadly focused on all the wrong things. Fircroft is a company with a huge portfolio of clients, some of the biggest names in the world, yet they still believe the answer for progress is to bring in new business instead of focusing on filling their requirements to the current clients, which given their size, could bring in much more work than any new business target could account for.
