Became toxic under new management
Toxic environment to work in. A lot of management should not be people managers. Poor support from HR.
The benefits are ok and some areas are really interesting.

Great place to work in a learning environment
Developed my career in a number of senior management roles in a great learning environment. The workplace culture was very much about helping and supporting learner outcomes, often the most disadvantaged.

Productive workplace, professional
This was a fun place to work for 9 years. Very commercial and sales focused, a little too much from senior management but in general was a great place to work with lots of opportunities for travel, progression and bonus!

Company behind the times
My time with this company was challenging as the companies premises were not really suitable for the work that was being carried out there. The rules were constantly changing to suit which I was not happy with.
Pros
Short distance from home
Cons
Poor work ethics

Lovely people to work with
Fast paced

The workload would change on a daily basis. Impossible to become bored of the work.

Better training could be provided to new employees.

Not a place I would recommend working
Work/Life balance seemed to depend on teams and line managers and the environment was relentless and unsupportive. Processes and procedures changed constantly and communicated poorly.
