People leave managers, not jobs.
Trainee Administrator (Former Employee) –  Sevenoaks, Kent12 December 2016
Couldn't have had a worse manager, absolutely shocking behaviour. Was completely corporately bullied by her and discriminated against. Didn't follow the West Kent values at all. Reminded me of the geeky weird girl at school who got taken under the 'mean girls' wings and turned evil.

However the company as a whole (minus 2/3 people) is incredible. The amount of time and effort that they install into their staff is a breathe of fresh air. I wish I hadn't been forced to leave as my passion for the company and job role is still there even today.

Guess it just goes to show - people don't leave jobs...they leave managers!
Pros
Some staff are great
