PTS staff (Current Employee) – Bedfordshire – 21 December 2018
No management to speak of, rarely seen, no communication, support, guidance, motivation, left without help using substandard resources. Work colleagues are good and the role is rewarding, but it all collapses when feeling undervalued and not to mention waiting months for money to be paid. Expenses disappear, unsocial hours entitlement not paid. This is my experience, others may differ but I'm looking for a new job and will leave as soon as I find one.

I can unreservedly recommend not working in EEAST IT. I have not found any other organisation where bullying, harassment, intimidation, micromanagement, emotional and verbal abuse are all part of the exclusive package. You get it all here. Don’t worry about training or self development either, you won’t get any. If you are a self starter who can manage work flexibly and have a can do attitude then this place can offer nothing for you, there is no flexibility, it is over-bureaucratic and attending pointless meetings and writing endless reports is far more important than doing any real work. It is not all bad though, the management will back each other up and close ranks quicker than you can say dignity at work. Be assured that any complaints will be thoroughly covered up and you will be down the job centre in no time. Another bonus is that this ethos does not just stop within IT, the culture is openly ignored all the way to exec level too. Don’t hesitate to not apply straight away!

No flexibility, abusive and controlling management, toxic culture including bullying, harassment and intimidation, no support, no training, no career progression, bureaucratic, absolutely no trust.
Patamedic (Former Employee) – Cambridgeshire – 26 September 2018
Too many managers looking after themselves and not the staff. Bullying and harassment are rife. Mistakes are covered up for those who's faces fit, for those that don't you've had it. Staff leaving in droves, always recruiting. Staff morale so low is shocking. Always off late, poor rotas that are only going to get worse, any training such as mandatory yearly training has to be done on own time. I regret ever setting foot in this workplace.
Long hours. No support from managers. No training support. Blame culture is rife.
Interim Quality Improvement (Former Employee) – England – 2 January 2019
This is extremely annoying that you are making me complete this for every single job I have had. It is a lot more time consuming to an already long process of looking for a new job. Not impressed Indeed!
Call Centre Operator (Current Employee) – Bedford, Bedfordshire – 22 May 2017
No two days are ever the same, some things happen which you cannot plan for, but everyone always pull together to make it work. There is good teamwork between staff and the people are a joy to work with. The hardest part of the job is the shift work, it is something which is very hard to get used to, especially at the beginning. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to speak to members of the public and getting a feeling that you are making a difference to their lives, it is very rewarding.
