very bad place to work
Printer/Finisher (Former Employee) –  print room3 February 2020
this work place is like a concentration camp.it is full of east europeans mostly polish who all speak in polish so me being english you have no idea what there saying.The management are a bunch of slave drivers supervisiors and management are there for one thing to cause stress to english people only. This firm took over from HSBC bank from which i came they have driven english people and especially EX HSBC bank staff
from the company they only promote east europeans the whole structure of this work place is really bad they also lie to there customers they hide work which is behind it's processing date when HSBC do a site visit the work is hidden in the warehouse on pallets put up on the top shelves so that the visitors never see it a shambles of a company

MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Halifax, West Yorkshire12 January 2020
The company is just not a very reliable company to work for and the pressure for the amount of wage you’re on is definitely something that really put me off the company

Communisis were not a pleasant company to work for.

Communisis were not a pleasant company to work for. Management had no idea of the work involved. They caused low morale. Blamed staff for their incompetence.

Credit Control Administrator (Former Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear11 December 2019
I worked as a temp for 3 months and enjoyed the friendly relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent training given and staff very helpful.
Only downside was that temp staff overlooked for permanent positions

Really bad experience
Contractor developer (Former Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire10 December 2019
Communisis / OSG is a bad place to work, avoid this place not worth it.

A very senior manager was a bully to other the staff and in my time most of my team are leave due to this person.

This place should be investigated by some government body.

I didn't enjoy working here at all. The management was very poor.
The salary and wage rises were very poor as well.. I'd avoid this company at all costs.. Not a good company to work for at all.

Not recommended. There are a million different places you could start your adventure with employment. Avoid at all cost but it can be an easy ride....

Good company and feel valued
Recruitment Manager (Current Employee) –  Liverpool, Merseyside9 October 2019
Great people who make you feel valued and appreciated. I made some great friends and felt that the work I did genuinely mattered and made a difference to the company.
Everyone I have worked for gives 100%, they value progression and development. They support charities, promote good mental health in the workplace.

Application Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire29 July 2019
The management make decisions and claim to notify you but make decisions about your own career without informing you. This company have also been known to develop pointless reasons to give you punishment in order to assert their dominance and control.

It's really unusual and overkill as most employees are way too good for that company.

They also lie to actual clients such as nationwide about decisions to their systems and SLA's which I'm sure is illegal but they all laugh about it like a running joke.

Wouldn't recommend working here unless you are a contractor but good luck because they are money careful even though they are heavily understaffed.

Good friendly people to work with
Morning Post Opener/Data Processor (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire14 June 2019
I enjoyed my time working at Communisis, however sadly the work ended up being a zero hour contract job with no prospect of a long term, or permanent position.
Pros
Easy to commute to with a Leeds city centre location
Cons
Agency work with no fixed hours or long term possibility of employment

Stressful
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne6 May 2019
Most people who work here are fine if your face doesn’t fit with the management you will be treat like rubbish. The management are very lazy passing all work on to anyone they can. You will not be trained up to do anything you are asked to do you will be asked to do thing that are never unsafe no one cares if your life is out in danger.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Bad wages bad management

Poor management
engineer (Former Employee) –  Crewe, Cheshire6 April 2019
The management are a law unto themselves. Complaints from staff are brushed aside unless passed directly to a higher level. Staff members forced out by squeezing the rules tight on some but being lax on others.
Terrible work ethic.

Management have set themselves apart from the workforce like aristocrats above peasants.

Backstabbing is rife even between colleagues who are made to distrust one another by constant management failures.

Avoid at all costs
Pros
None
Cons
nothing

Stressful environment
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear10 January 2019
The company offer no training and work on a 'sink or swim' approach. You will be expected to know everything without anyone ever showing you. The company do not invest any time or money into their staff.

The team are friendly and more experienced members will help you if you get stuck even though everyone has way too much work to do.

The salary is poor and everyone is on different money even though the job title and requirements are the same.

Don't come to work here if you want to progress.
Pros
Friendly team
Cons
Overworked, underpaid

Busy and stressful
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear7 December 2018
The days are varied and you never know how it will pan out.
Lots of decision making. You are almost an account manager and not an account executive.

The best part of the job is that you are left to manage your own work time and not constantly monitored.

The least favourite part is that you are often under appreciated.
Pros
Bupa health care
Cons
Often given too much responsibility and work

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Swindon29 August 2018
Communisis provides no training or support to the staff that they employ.

If your looking to go forward in your career do not join this company they are not a good career choice.

The people I had work in my team was amazing and asked for training, Communisis would not help them instead they made the staff feel worthless and put pressure on them to force them out of the company.
Pros
Nice people in some teams.
Cons
No training or support.

Worst organisation I have ever worked for.

Management for the role of Central Support Executive is immature, unapproachable.
I have witnessed management insult, make fun of and show utter un-professionalism in dealing with errors made by workers.
Pros
none
Cons

Flexible but not Cohesive
Portfolio Programme Manager (Current Employee) –  Liverpool, Merseyside10 January 2018
Communisis are a very good company to work for. They work very hard to improve their processes and procedures. Day to day can be hard going as there are still many gaps in these processes. In order to close these gaps the company needs to take steps to create a more cohesive culture across all function to help bridge the process gaps and create new ones. Like in many companies communication is key to success. The lack of communication at Communisis makes the job harder.
The best part of the job is that there are some very good people who will always help you. There is room for progression and they do encourage a good work/life balance. That said be prepared to provide flexibility in return.
