Life and work balance is very good. I learned lots of new information regarding my job. The management was good. When help is needed, if you contact the correct person, you will get it. Very good sports facilities. I am very happy to have worked in this organisation.
It depends on the department but if you want to work for an innovative Company or a motivating environment, this is not the place!Lot of bureaucracy, mismanagement, non-existent or unclear decision making, lack of interest in improvement for the Company and for the employees. Worked here for more than 3 years and didn't have any personal development.Very relaxed environment to work in, quite often too much relaxed!
Free gym, high standard canteen
No personal development, Mismanagement
It really depends on your manager and team! The senior leadership is thoughful and very consultative - they do care about their people. My job entails a lot of cross-functional collaboration and innovation to motivate, inspire and develop individuals and teams. The organisation is properly global so I work with colleagues in Mexico City, New York, Madrid, Hyderabad and the UK. In some roles, like mine, you tend to hit a ceiling and then it's difficult to know how to progress unless you retrain, but the availability of Apprenticeship schemes (from Level 3 to Masters level) is fantastic.
Gave me a good start to my career, with plenty of training opportunities. Development and contentment were hampered by inconsistent management/poor communication and a feeling of weak overall strategic vision from senior management.
Respected international publisher
Worked here for a number of years, and slowly progressed in my chosen career path. Loads of really really friendly people, and the work is a steady continuous flow. Rare to have nothing to do, so it was a great stable place to work. Lots of staff socialising, and a nice atmosphere. I honestly regret leaving.
Steady job, lots of work, nice atmosphere, great people
Lower pay, slow moving, HiPPOs, traffic
Worked on helping the company staff with data migration from legacy systems to SAP, using MS Office Tools. During my time there, the workload was very light, with little direction from management on their requirements. I self-motivated my work to help staff members in there migration work.
Spacious working environment, good canteen
Not enough work to do
Really good learning place of what you can actually handle in a working environment of a huge company and all in one huge office. Great fun in working with all the different systems
