Absolutely recommend as an employer
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Peterborough, Cambridgeshire – 10 January 2018
I've currently worked in the world of AW for the past 2 1/2 years. I can honestly say that it's the best company I have worked for for work/life balance.
People are friendly and the office environment is always striving to improve to assist in making it more comfortable for employees.
I do feel that if you want to progress, the opportunities are there but you really have to ensure you push for what you want. Yes, as all work places, I do feel that if your face fits it helps or "it's not what you know, its who you know" saying comes into play but, I know I would rather be promoted on my merits rather than because I may know somebody!
Anyway, I really would recommend AW as a great place to work. They have a superb LIFE programme to promote wellbeing and health and safety and really do take their employees thoughts, suggestions and concerns into consideration in order to support their team.
Regarding salary, it's a bit up and down but generally pay is good. It all depends on your location, role and experience.
I've never experienced any issues with booking holiday, taking time off for emergencies or compassionate leave. I've always found my colleagues to be extremely supportive.
Employee wellbeing, training, networking, potential progression
