Sure, can be a great place, if you have a managers that believe in you
Accountant (Current Employee) – Luton, Bedfordshire – 29 June 2018
Generally I enjoy working here, my team is great, my direct manager is understanding and provides feedback and has great belief in my ability. It's fairly close to home and the benefits are good. However, if an internal role arose, many times internal candidates were rejected for the roles. In some cases, pre-judged on the ability on whether you can do the job based on whether you possess a certain skill (which is highly discouraging who want to learn/develop).
A lot of the cases, candidates are also judged based on whether they came from a 'top 4' trained company, which again is highly discouraging.
This could be a great place to work, if the mentality of the senior management could change and they could recognise that not everyone who is capable/competent comes from the 'top 4'.
Great work / life balance, pays wells with benefits
Disregarded for internal role if do not possess specific skill, teams can be very 'clique-y'
