As the title says, its a great place to work. Has a great atmosphere and very good people, management always seem to have time and are very accommodating with working from home. Though you always seem to work way more hours than you are contracted!

Internal training and development is generally poor, considering the brand reputation and premium price BSI has. Investment in people could also be considered poor and assessors are expected to deliver with minimal training in their subject areas and with little CPD. However, the culture tends to be positive with collaboration stressed. Management though are not supported by HR in their functions, especially with disputes, and greater emphasis is placed on being politically correct and having personal values than on actual job performance. HR internal processes are poor.

A great place to work, very supportive culture and good development opportunities. I never imagined I would have remained with a company for so long but I've had an amazing time, met people and seen things I could never have imagined.

BSI is an average company. They have good benifits i.e. up to 30 days holiday, a good pension plan but i would expect this from a 'superbrand'. Management is getting better but honestly it was terrible so not hard to improve. The salarys are below average for the job we do. BSI are aware of this but dont seem bothered about it which is why they are losing so many good employees.
Pros
Benifits

Great company with fantastic training, huge portfolio to be learnt and demonstrated. an Innovative business with the eye to be at the forefront of business improvements, by gaining an understanding of the science of selling and powers of persuasion, they are pushing to deliver the best customer experience to their clients.

However with consistent change, it does bring uncertainty and a lot of

personal self discovery moments as the resource to develop individuals and teams are limited and under lots of pressure to achieve. I am confident once they establish a win win strategy to develop and address development needs within the business, they will be back on track
Pros
Benefits and good commission structure
Cons
Working life balance... its not 9-5pm it's your life, especially the sales teams

Free coffee in the morning, Check my jobs-to-do-board and with the Maintenance Manager. gather material and tools for specific job. Lunch and carry with the job and if completed on to next job.

Management are very helpfully, polite and friendly.

Workplace Culture is like a matrix organisation all departments are helpful to each other.


Had to brake a huge Concrete platform and moving it to skip using large breaker and wheelbarrow.


Jobs are varied day by day and challenging at times,
Pros
Free Coffee all day long
Cons

BSI was quite dry -- it's standards after all.

Very slow moving, very little pressure, and no stress.


Nice as a break from more stressful work environments, but after a while very boring.


People went out for lunch together on Fridays.


Difficult to progress within the oganisation. My experience was one where managers went out of their way to make sure you weren't mentored or prepared for subsequent roles.
Pros
Lots of leave, no over-time, reasonable work-loads, parking
Cons
Very dry, poor management mentoring

BSI working in Executive Assistant/Business Support capacity supporting Group Executive level directors.
BSI services are designed to align with the steps individual clients need to take to understand what is best practice, how to achieve it and ensure that it remains an ongoing habit.

Great management who is typically understanding when it comes to personal life. A relaxed atmosphere majority of the time. Only downfall is that everyone is too far stretched
