Docucentre Administration Assistant in Birmingham, West Midlands
Management are more interested in gossiping about you, didn’t respect your confidentiality, they invested in a whiteboard where they would write down the reason for your absences for the whole team to see, just to give the team something to gossip about. I experienced mental health problems whilst working there and I was penalised for this throughout my employment. I worked at the snow hill docucentre.
Administrator in London, Greater London
bad working environment
Intelligent Office is one of the worst work force I have ever been a part of, they do not care about you or how you feel, the take pleaser in making people stressed and upset, they lie and they get people to spy on you and watch your every move, do not work for Intelligent Office, they will give you depression and work related stress. I will never recommend them to anyone
Reference Point Team Leader in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
Varied tasks and room to develop
Started off as an assistant and was scoped out to be on the trajectory to be a team leader. Applied internally and went through the interview process and was successful. There is room for progression if you apply yourself to available opportunities. Team leader and manager were supportive in developing my skills as an individual and to be a team leader.
A typical working day can be very full on with ad hoc client requests, problems to solve and tight deadlines. No two days are the same. Emphasis on serving the client and providing the best we can for them. Different teams on site work closely together so there are good relationships built. The client appreciates the value Intelligent Office bring to them and often thank us for our hard work.
Managers work with their management team to scope out plans for the teams and also tackle any issues present. Team leaders work closely with their manager and also with the assistants to provide guidance and clarity on tasks. Teams work together on projects and also focus on individual tasks. It is also easy to build up a good rapport with the client on a managed services site.
The hours for working could be flexed a little as full time hours total 37.5 altogether. Including 1 hour unpaid lunch break can make the day seem quite long. Sometimes there is a disconnect from the rest of the Intelligent Office teams and sites as everything is site-based. Head office send out emails but rarely make visits to site so it is harder to see their vision for the company through email.
This job allows me to demonstrate and develop my skills in all areas, with room to learn more and try new things. The people I work with make a real difference by adding value in their day to day work.
Floor Support in London, Greater London
One of the worst places to work.
A very archaic and demotivating working environment especially for Floor Support staff. There is a problem with senior management, the dress code is very backwards and borderline sexist and they have many patronising rules that seem to only apply to the younger people, usually floor support.
Senior Management will not listen to any concerns and as you can see on here, they arequick to defend themselves rather than try to take on constructive criticism. One of the main reasons there are issues, how can you improve if you don’t see an issue with the current situation?
Floor support assistant in Crawley, West Sussex
Please do not work for this company!!!
No overtime, No sick pay, Overly strict when it comes to what you wear. Managers preach about being professional but are far from professional. Bad communication between staff and managers. The managers adopt a do as we say not as we do attitude. Extremely underpaid. No chance for advancement. Not very good benefits. Managers will throw work onto to you that you had no training for and expect you to know how to do it. Treated very poorly overall. This wasn't just one site. I worked at many sites for Intelligent Office over my 18 months employed with them. Was the case at every site. Unpaid lunch too. Please do not work for this company!!!
