Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You will not progress in this company unless your face fits. People have been pushed out by bullying and scare tactics for years. Management are very judgemental and will talk about you behind your back and give you cruel nicknames. I was lucky to progress as a new department opened with outsoursed management. The medics benefits are great, as is the flexitime. Although they are starting to take away peoples flexitime throughout the company.

Pros

city centre location, flexi time

Cons

Management and progression

Stressful , no care for mental health

Caseloads are ridiculously high and unmanageable. Constant complaints and clients kicking off with us yet we can’t tell them why we don’t have time to deal with their case ! Full time people are on over 800 and part time over 600. Ask to be taken off case allocation they will put you back on anyway a week later. Send emails regarding mental health all the time yet don’t care about their staff and what stress they are putting them through. People going on stress sick and leaving left right and centre so the people that are working are left with everyone else’s work to deal with !! Salary not worth what you have to deal with everyday

Pros

Absolutely nothing no benefits whatsoever

Cons

High case loads, disregard for mental health, poor management, nothing in return for working hard

They don’t care about the staff. All about the money

They pay is horrible. The office is outdated and gross. All they care about is the money. They don’t supply you with any work supplies. Stay away if you can!!

Pros

Holiday pay

Cons

Don’t look after employees

A welcoming environment with a comprehensive training structure

A fantastic place to work in the beginning stages of a legal career with many opportunities to grow. The pay and benefits are competitive and the training is incredibly intuitive and easy to grasp in all areas of work.

Worst run firm ever

Where do I start! Bullies run the place Hire and fire mentality by Scallies Minimum wage for Roles that should be £22- £24000. IT breaks down daily. Not enough Car Parking Canteens way too small. No extra pay when working till 8 Regularly dismiss staff unfairly for sadistically reasons. Line Managers do absolutely nothing except chat to each other. Multi millionaire boss yet staff on minimum wage! Total joke 1/10 rating

Pros

Better than Dole

Cons

See above. Slave Labour

If the face fits

Terrible working conditions at the seacombe office. Car parking is a nightmare, work place bullying from team leaders, literally if your face doesn’t it youhave no chance to progress, praise is never given. Once you give in your notice you are constantly pulled in for trival agendas and even ignored by managers.

Pros

Flexi and medicash

Cons

No praise, horrible team leaders, vile offices

Good benefits

Lovely people, good benefits but sadly common sense doesn’t not always prevail when management decisions are made. Targets sets aren’t achievable making job satisfaction only available to a minority. Location is good but parking is a nightmare.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Management/unachievable targets

Challenging but rewarding

If you are looking for a role that offers the same routine every day, where you are not challenged and you can sit doing nothing all day - this isn't the job for you! Managers are 'moving along' those people who can't keep up - who I would rather not work with anyway - hence there may be some negative reviews about. I find the work challenging and fast paced. It is never boring and if you work hard you are rewarded. There are lots of opportunities to apply for different roles. There are lots of things going on to improve training and things. Free fruit on Mondays, lots of charity events, free parties. Also, free life insurance, flexitime, Medicash Health benefit, pension - not sure what more you would want really!

Pros

Good benefits, lots of changes, challenging, good opportunities

Cons

Can be hard work, office space, staff facilities

Nice place to work

Friendly place, just case loads are unmanageable. High case loads leads to stress. However management are friendly and staff are all generally nice, good benefits too.

Pros

Flexi time

Cons

Huge caseloads
