It is difficult to progress from Band A (lowest level), and the interviews are 'who can tick the box best on the day' affairs. Management is very opaque and old fashioned. But day to day being a steward is fun and rewarding, if a bit repetitive.
Poor HR department that refuses to deal with narsistic bullies. With little or no regard for peoples work life balance. Most things are dealt with by managers, whom mostly have caused the issue. HR tend to shy away and claim its nothing to do with them, thus perpetuating the issue. North District Manager is a real bully boy, beware.
Lovely sites & staff that work therein.Ok pay.
Full of Narcissistic Bullies, Poor HR, long hours.
CSPS pension , t&Cs compensate for the low salary. currently undergoing changes for the better with residual shoddy management , organisational chaos at times and bullying in places. HR will not address this but protect higher management . hopefully better times ahead.

Top heavy organisation with management sneering down at the people who actually do the work. There are company perks available but you're unlikely to benefit if you're in a minion position. Cliques and bullying are rife but not dealt with and the perpetrators progress while good employees leave. I agree with a previous reviewer who described it as us and them.
Was good to start with but over time you realise that most of the managers who have been there for a while are a bit stuck up and don't want to deal with the minions as they are not on the same pay band. It's like us and them. It felt like there was lots of wraparound support for managers but not so much for staff. I wouldn't treat a sloth like that never mind a human
Good holidays and pension
Looked down upon
Although the work was very interesting what spoilt it was the unhelpful and unfriendly attitude of some staff who had been there for upwards of 10 years and felt they owned the place. Although I think it is generally a good place to work I did not find it so in my office with 1980's style management and an uncomfortable atmosphere.
Flexitime - if you can get it.
Difficult to park, antiquated management styles and lack of staff engagement.
