If you value your sanity do not work here
Manager GCO (Former Employee) –  Watford4 February 2019
This is possibly the worst place I have ever worked. The EMEA Commercial Leadership Team are the worst leaders, a blame culture, distinct lack of accountability and lip service to customer centricity. There is no real desire to do things better, to be compliant, to do things right. Its all about 'looking good' vs actually doing good.

Some good people but they are fighting an impossible battle they will never win. Until the EMEA Leadership at the top is changed and some people that genuinely want to make a difference bought in this company will go nowhere, its customers and teams on the ground will suffer.

HR seem ok with tolerating these behaviours at the senior leadership behaviour but not on the ground, its horribly imbalanced. On the whole the country HR advisers are good but the minute you go to HR Leadership you realise they either don't want to help or have no influence either.

If you want to feel underappreciated, you can accept that you aren't able to do a good job but get an ok salary this is the place for you. If you value your integrity, want to do the best by your customer and want to be able to make a difference steer clear!
Pros
Good office location for train users, ok salary
Cons
Culture, GCO Leadership, values, integrity, support

Awful company culture, management promote a culture of blame
Executive Assistant to EMEA Customer Care Director (Former Employee) –  Watford, Hertfordshire21 September 2018
Terrible experience working for this company. Management promote a culture of blame and no one wants to take accountability for anything. Very difficult workplace with high turnover of staff in most departments.

Strict payroll deadlines all geared up to make sure employees paid on time.
Payroll Administrator/Manager (Current Employee) –  Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire11 May 2017
A payroll set up on ADP Freedom - up to 6 monthly payrolls for different sites. Main tasks payroll start to finish and Month End reporting. Culture is called the bio rad way - but if you do a job well you are rewarded. Hardest part is switching off and having a break as the job is to make sure employees are paid and managers are given reports when needed. Enjoyable part is knowing you have paid employees on time and getting appreciated for efforts.
Pros
Working for a company that keeps you busy and rewards you when you do exceptional work.
Cons
Attention to detail delays outside family life.

Decent workplace
Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Oxford, Oxfordshire9 April 2017
Excellent company to start a career but limited opportunities for advancement. The salary is well below industry standard. High expectations for job role, many demands outside of specified job functions. However, there is still good work life balance, most people can work a standard 9-5.
Pros
big brand name company
Cons
low salary
