Capped commission structure and very pressured environment. Shares are dropping hugely. Nobody cares about the welfare of it’s employees and they really don’t care about their staff. A sales environment should be well paid with commission but this is not the situation at Crest. Poor management
Pros
Good basic salary
Cons
Poor commission structure

A hard question to answer as this changed dramatically over the years. Usually very busy, which I enjoyed. They were very relaxed about tea breaks etc, but given the job I did, I had to work to strict deadlines.
Pros
Private health cover, SAYE schemes etc
Cons
Could be long hours

Work can be hectic and also slow, once you get use to the software. Most people are very friendly some keep themselves to themselves that's usual in most places. They use headphones but do have the occasions where they interact. Some work is monotonous.

Nice people, nice working environment. Management heavy, inconsistent instruction. Generally a good company, although going through a lot of changes at present, with new management at the top, and it will not remain the same company.
Pros
good salary
Cons
indecisive

Relaxed start at 9.00am pleasant workplace environment. My only criticism, too many meetings that were not productive. Good after hours contacts with colleagues

A very nice company to work for. but if you are less busy, they want you to do something else that's not related to your trade. like cleaning and all that, and if you refuse. You are gone. I was in one of their project in New cross. I have a long contract and enjoyed everyday.
Pros
Calm. easy day
Cons
None
