Do Not work here
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester20 April 2017
Do not work for this company, depending on if management like you as a person will determine how far you go, certain managers can do pretty much do anything they like, not come into work have whatever time off etc also very un-appreciative of how much work time and effort you put in with a whole unapproachable attitude towards staff members entirely. Also speaking up when certain managers are wrong can put you under improvement plans? Staff depending on if they can hit numbers don't have to come into the company at all where as others who are on time everyday and come in late once and get disciplinarys/contract terminated...not a great work environment at all !! They expect you to come in on days off if not you will go down in managements eyes, ie if you have kids this will not be the job for you ! You get told of uncapped earnings but commission structure to how many hours you actually put in works out at a ridiculous rate...DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY !!

Great place to work
Developer (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester19 January 2017
great company to work at,

listens to everyone's point of view and is constantly trying to find new ways to improve internal processes.
Employees are great and the management is really supportive.

Managers have a large presence and are involved heavily with projects there is also a monthly company presentation which keeps all staff informed and in the loop.

Easy to develop in the company as they will happily put you into training to improve your skills and have research and development days to learn new skills or strengthen existing ones.
Pros
Research and development days, Approachable management, trainign oppurtunities

Rapidly Growing Business - Lots of Opportunity
Manager (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester19 January 2017
I've been at the business for almost 2 years. In that time the company has more than trebled in headcount and performance so I've seen first hand the transition from a small to medium company.

Previously there has been a high turnover of staff, mainly in the sales office. However there have been multiple reasons for that and since the rebrand in December turnover has vastly reduced. In January a new benefits package was introduced, including a pension - this was one of the reasons why people were leaving.

In my department there is a real open door policy. Everyone pulls together and people often go out of their way to help each other. The Express office is next to the Northern Quarter so there are plenty of social events too.

Hardest part of the job is the speed of progression. The company is moving forwards so quickly and sometimes you do end up working late. Personally i find that rewarding.

Most enjoyable aspect are the people. Everyone is really friendly and can't do enough for you.
Pros
Location, Employees
Cons
Long Hours (Sales)
